Comments about Sporting Innovations Yankz Sure Laces Fitness Equipment:

I have a lot of issues with my laces. I tie my laces each time I put on my shoes and often need to make adjustments when I'm out on the road. I was looking for a lacing system that I could adjust once and forget. (I walk about 75 miles a week and weigh 220.) I use a popular heavy duty running shoe for walking but the OEM laces are flat and hard to adjust on the fly. The instructions for installing this system are detailed but could benefit from "as installed" photo's. It took me over an hour to get the laces installed correctly. They work as advertised but I like my laces tight so the shoes feel secure on my foot. I tried these twice but the elastic allows the shoe to move independent of your foot and I found it difficult to control my footfall which made me work much harder causing extra fatigue. I returned the laces and opted for oval cotton laces I had from a worn out pair of Brooks Beasts I had in the closet.

    I have used these for years and will continue to use them for convenience. I have had hip surgery so it is difficult to tie the laces for a snug fit. These sure laces are great for easy on and taking off the shoes while maintaining a snug fit during activity.

          I love these! Yes, they can be difficult to set up if you're new to them since you lace them backwards. You also have to cut off any excess. However, they have held up very well. I have used them in several pairs of shoes. Once I have them laced and adjusted for fit, I never have to do it again for the shoes.

              I have been using Lock Laces on all my sports shoes (even my Soccer shoes) and love them. I like trying out different brands, so I gave these laces a try. First, their lacing system is not easy to set up correctly. To elaborate, even after setting them up according to instructions, the laces did not fit well. Their lock system comes undone easily, and mine broke the first day of cross training. I would not recommend these laces.

                I picked these up with the intent of shaving time off in transition area for my first triathlon. I've laced my shoes up and ran in them 4 times now and have loved them, I have wider feet so lacing options matter to me for comfort and these are comfortable for me. The only thing I can say is that you need to read the instructions on lacing them.

                  I have been using this product since I started triathlons 5 years ago. I love the ease of use and put them on all my workout shoes. They make your shoes easy to slip on & secure for a quick dog walk around the block to a long run on the trail.

                    All I can say is: "I love them". They are on all of my running/tennis shoes. I mentioned that they are a little awkward to set-up but only because they lace from top to bottom rather that bottom to top like normal laces. Once you get it it gets easy. Great for tri's and multi-sport races where quick on and off are needed.

                      I bought 2 pairs of these, one for myself and one for my boyfriend. My boyfriends already broke after only 2 weeks of use. I gave him mine because I need to tie my trail running shoes really tight so I don't lose them in a mud puddle. Very disappointed that they broke so quickly.

                        I've been wearing Yankz for years now, and I love them [...] Set up is not so easy, i always find adjustment needed for a few runs, but once you get the right setting, it's sooooo easy to put the shoes on and get going. Actually as a parent always on the run, it's really nice to just pull on my running shoes and chase my kids out the door (+said my HH6). I'm also old school and didn't like the idea of not havin shoe lace for some life threatning situation, but come on[...], bangee will suffice for our daily lives. GREAT product for great price. I just want [@] to carry them in grey, that's very good color for most trail shoes.

                            Yanks are the best. They are the answer to the rubbing of traditional shoe laces. I love how they allow the shoe to hug your foot. They also expand slightly as you run canceling out that rubbing along the top of the foot. These are great because you never have to tie your running shoes again. They slip on and off. Great product, I have recommended these laces to everyone I run with.
