You can wear any shoe on Gods green earth with these puppies

If those don't float your boat:
You may want to consider a pair of Adidas NMD_R1 sneakers. They're extremely comfortable and the laces are just for show so you could ask a friend or family member to doubleknot them for you tightly so that they never come untied, or you could tuck the laces into the toe of the shoe. They fit loose enough to slip right into them, tied or not, yet your foot doesn't slide around in the shoe when you walk. If you're not interested in those then I would suggest some sanuks. They have lots of styles and are very comfortable and fit right in at most social settings so they'll look casual and nice.

I really hope you find what you're looking for :)

  1. [Buy these, wait for package to arrive] (

  2. Put them on a pair of shoes

  3. Go to literally any show

  4. Make friends with some of the many people who will approach you to tell you how much they love your dope shoelaces

    This process has worked flawlessly countless times for me and multiple friends for whom I have bought these shoe-borne beacons as a gift. If you can't make friends with those babies on, you might be skipping deodorant or something because they're basically friend magnets.

    As far as where to find events, depends on your city. Look up EDMTrain.

Anchor Laces

Kickstarter was funded by many Redditors. I have them in casual shoes and they work great. I haven't used them in dress shoes though.

I like hiding my laces too. Particularly when they're too long.

u/Im_A_SLOTH_AMA · 14 pointsr/Sneakers
u/TigerBrother · 13 pointsr/triathlon

Lock Laces are what I use. They have been very helpful in taking off a few seconds from T2, and I have had no issues with them. Most people will set them up beforehand to a comfortable fit so all you have to do is slip them on when you're ready to run. No brainer for eight bucks =)

u/EtherGnat · 13 pointsr/running

Lock Laces. I started using them to save a few seconds in triathlons, but I absolutely love them for running. I ordered a new pair of shoes yesterday and the first thing I did was order a pair of Lock Laces to go with them.

They take a little bit of work to adjust in the beginning, but once you get it right they give you a perfect fit every time. Even if your feet swell during a run, they're elastic enough they just stretch a little rather than getting too tight. They also never come undone in the middle of a run, and they make your shoes very easy to put on and take off.

Hopefully I don't sound like a Lock Laces salesperson. There are other brands and I presume they work just as well, but I haven't tried them. My only real complaint is they're overpriced for what they are, but it's worth it. Also they kind of suck for trail running, and I definitely wouldn't use them for a mud race--that would be a good way to lose a shoe.

u/CG_Ops · 12 pointsr/motorcycles

Just saw /u/waffl6's page. I'm sorry to hear about your brother. There's no way around it, he's in for a world of hurt and hard work. Be there for him, even when he rejects it.

You don't seem to be looking for input on getting him on the bike, which is good, at this point. Here are some things I've posted in the past that may be relevant for you/him. I sincerely hope it helps. Feel free to PM me and we can talk or I can give you my email/phone number and I can talk to him directly.

Response to a rider who lost his arm and was in despair

Recounting my own accident and initial hospitalization

First post-accident track day video and associated discussion

A reminder of why we ride in the first place

Most people have to emulate Thomas the Train to be happy/successful in life, "I think I can, I think I can...." Your brother will need to have this mindset from now on

I'm sorry for what your family is going to go through for the next ~year. He will feel defeated, he will feel helpless, and he will probably lash out at you all, at one point or another. Do you best to take it in stride and support him. I am where I am today because my family taught me to look at every obstacle as a challenge and that defeat only exists in giving up - keep trying until you find solutions that work. For example, i only tie one lace on my shoe (half bow). It's fast and easy. Took me 3 months to figure out, though. I step on one lace and tied the other as normal. Your brother could put something heavy on the lace or get special lace like these

u/skittles_rainbows · 10 pointsr/Teachers

I printed this out and sent it home to a similar parent. Mom bought them and I put them in. I had some annoying parents and I bought the equivalent from China on eBay and asked parents permission to put them in. I told mom to send new shoes in and I'd put them in new shoes. I put them in 4 pairs of a kid's shoes. Best money spent.

u/BigBen96 · 9 pointsr/Sneakers

Right here! They're kinda pricey but I got them for free with Amazon rewards points.

u/Throtex · 9 pointsr/4chan

They're running shoes. No one cares what they look like while running.

There are also these things for running shoes, which are quick to put on too.

u/jdbee · 8 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I've ordered a couple pairs of these waxed cotton laces for some Aldens and I'm really happy with them -

u/crankydrinker · 7 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Every 90's high schooler will have a different take on this, but here are a couple:

  • instead of tying your laces at the top hole, do this and make sure you do a square knot not a bow so it stays flat
  • tie the knot inside the side of the shoe (close to instep) instead of at the center of the tongue, make sure it's a square knot not a bow
  • don't tie your shoes, just lace them sufficiently and tuck the remaining laces on the sides
  • use these
    edit for format
u/URnot_drunk_Im_drunk · 6 pointsr/ABDL

I get that this is posted as "Velcro shoes are juvenile" post but Lock Laces have seriously made a huge improvement in my life and I strongly recommend them.

u/tartinely · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

I get these shoelace locks from Amazon where you thread the ends of your shoelaces into the plastic bits, and then snip the extra off. It keeps your shoelaces attached to the inside of the eyelet, and there's nothing extra hanging out.

u/az0606 · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Tuck into the shoes or get these-

You can also hide the bows behind the tongue, which is what I do with stans. Lace all the way up to the top, poke the tongue through the last and second to last eyelets.

u/crewnex · 5 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I put these in my Vans Authentics and they work perfectly.

u/treo700P · 5 pointsr/bisexual

Thank you! I found them on Amazon. Sof Sole Flat Laces, Rainbow Pink/Purple/Blue, 45"
They have held up for three months so far. I love them with the shoes, Van's I scored at a thrift shop for $3.00. I LOVE them.

I found some plain black Tom's at Ross and swapped the laces out for [these light up ones from amazon] (

u/jerrycakes · 3 pointsr/bisexual

These are what I have.

I'm wearing them at PAX South this weekend in San Antonio, TX. I'm not out to a lot of people, but if somebody sees them on my feet, they'll know in a nice subtle way.

u/cantickle · 3 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Those are just standard leather laces which can be picked up for cheap anywhere. I ordered a few pairs of these 72 inch laces for $7 a pop. That's a good length for my 7-eyelet boots.

u/srezr · 3 pointsr/Sneakers

I bet [these](Japanese Katakana 3 Stripes Laces - Shoelaces for Adidas NMD / Ultraboost / Yeezy (Black) - 1 Pair (2 Shoelaces) would look sick on them.

u/redboyslim11 · 3 pointsr/streetwear

They're on Amazon lmao not limited stock at all

u/SavageBeatsJuugin · 3 pointsr/Sneakers

The laces are sick nice shoes

Edit: if anyone is curious on the laces I found these reps on amazon here. The original site is sold out and never restocking

u/BaintS · 3 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

just ordered my beeswax desert mali earlier today. it looks so much better when you switch the laces out. i was thinkin about gettin darker leather laces, but the color of your laces look fantastic!

once i wear the soles out, i wanna get them resoled with wedges.

u/TheBigBadOx · 3 pointsr/triathlon

I haven't had any issues and I've put them on Zoot, Nike, Saucony, and Brooks shoes so far. The ones I use are pretty much elastic laces with a plastic quick lock. Here's a link to them at Amazon.

u/bad_ideas_ · 3 pointsr/bisexual

i have those too! Amazon FTW

u/ThisAnacondaDoes · 3 pointsr/hiphopheads

They're 3m. I got myself some 3m shoelaces. They reflect but I didn't have to buy new shoes lol.

u/OverviewEffect · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

you can get cheap ones at any wallmart/dicks/target type place.

If you want some quality laces I recommend these Just bought them for my Red wings and with the extra length I cut off I put them on my Vans. look much better than the cheap Kiwi ones

u/xgtb · 2 pointsr/frugalmalefashion

Can somebody tell me what is the proper shoe lace size for the boots? TIA

u/tecrogue · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

With these I'd be the coolest Agent as I walk about hacking portals and drinking my milkshake. :D

u/Renigami · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

Yep. No need for explicit motorcycle branded boots when these with a pair of these is effective, easy to don and secure, and durable.

Not wearing explicitly for track racing or strictly high revving/speed riding either.

u/FrankMcDank · 2 pointsr/amateur_boxing

Hey everybody... purely hypothetically, would refitting lace-up gloves with these types of laces make it a slip-on? I mean for training?

u/Aceing · 2 pointsr/Sneakers

I just picked these up in Venice last week. Saw a post with these laces on a pair of primeknits and I liked them. Any lace recommendations for this pair of sneakers?

u/13lackHeart · 2 pointsr/Sneakers
u/rigertplakento · 2 pointsr/goodyearwelt

I ordered some but the shipping takes forever so I cancelled my order and got leather laces instead.

Laces from Red Wing, I believe, are 48", so you might want to try 60"

u/KristiiRexx · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'M IN :D And I've already got ideas c: Gonna start on this c:

EDIT: I meant to edit this.. Not reply. ._.

  1. Something that is grey.
  2. Something reminiscent of rain. This is rain because when you drop a bunch of them, it has the soothing sound of gentle rain c: (Craft WL)
  3. Something food related that is unusual. How are pumpkin pudding flavored Kit Kats NOT unusual? (Food WL)
  4. Something on your list that is for someone other than yourself. Tell me who it's for and why. (Yes, pets count!) This would be for my dad!! I want to make him a cake for his birthday with this wonderful topper! He just loves golf. He goes about 3 times a week ._. (Baking Stuff WL)
  5. A book I should read! I am an avid reader, so take your best shot and tell me why I need to read it! I haven't read this yet. But.. we should read it at the same time. 'Cause I love talking about books with everyone c: AND. It's about a clash between men and women. A guy who's from a time where women are obedient and a women who's from a time where they go unquestioned and praised. Aaaaaaaaaand... FIGHT! (Books WL)
  6. An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related!
  7. Something related to cats. I love cats! (keep this SFW, you know who you are...) Cateye glasses c: ORRRRRRR feathers because I've seen cats attacking birds or walking around with a feather in its mouth COUNTLESS times c: (Both from my Craft WL)
  8. Something that is not useful, but so beautiful you must have it. Shoe laces that don't tie aren't useful.. But shoe laces that don't tie AND LIGHT UP are beautiful c: And I would love to have them so my appearance at night will be FABULOUS. (Cutes! WL)
  9. A movie everyone should watch at least once in their life. Why?
  10. Something that would be useful when the zombies attack. Explain. You can make fake brains! It'll only be good enough to distract them for a moment, but that moment could be what saves you!!! (Baking Stuff WL)
  11. Something that would have a profound impact on your life and help you to achieve your current goals. This would allow me to easily carry a white board surface with me anywhere. I am a math tutor and an aspiring math professor, so being able to have a handy white board surface would be lovely. ORRRRRR this for a more playful goal. My friends and I seem to have the craziest conversations and strangest encounters while we're playing together. This would be a fun way to get our stuff recorded and FAMOUS. loljk. We just wanna share the insanity c: (white board from School Stuff WL and Elgato capture from Dreams WL)
  12. One of those pesky Add-On items. I just want mochi.. ;~; (Food WL)
  13. The most expensive thing on your list. Your dream item. Why? This is my current dream item. I'm attending college. My laptop is a dinosaur and it weighs a ton. It works fine, so I'm not looking to get rid of it. But I need something that won't break my already breaking back when I bring it to school. I spend a lot of time on campus doing homework or just relaxing. This Chromebook has a great battery life and is a good price for what I need to get done. (Dreams WL)
  14. Something bigger than a bread box. I'm going to assume this is bigger than a bread box because of the amount of candy in it.. (Food WL)
  15. Something smaller than a golf ball. Sugar pearls are smaller than golf balls c: (Baking Stuff WL)
  16. Something that smells wonderful. It may be too strong by itself.. But add it into some yummies and it'll smell DELICIOUS. c: (Baking Stuff WL)
  17. A (SFW) toy. It's SFW as long as you aren't screaming, "FUCK" or bludgeoning a person to death with it out of frustration c: (Cubes WL)
  18. Something that would be helpful for going back to school. I'm a math major and the majority of my math is done on white boards I have mounted in my room. There is no such thing as too many expo markers for me lol (School Stuff WL)
  19. Something related to your current obsession, whatever that may be. Chain maille jewelry! :D I've only started with it :c (Crafts WL)
  20. Something that is just so amazing and awe-inspiring that I simply must see it. Explain why it is so grand. It's a 3D DINOSAUR COOKIE CUTTER. You can make dinosaur cookies!!! THAT STAND. YOU CAN MAKE STOP MOTION DINO WARS. I are excite. (Baking Stuff WL)

    I'll come back with the three I missed c:

    Edit#2: Adding raffle phrase! fear cuts deeper than swords

    Also adding one of the bonuses! Purdy paintbrushes are made in Oregon c: They've been made in Portland since 1925! c:

These glow in the dark shoe laces for me :) annnnnd this poster for gemcitytiffany, because...well...she's earned it :)

u/ServerOfJustice · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I think flat waxed laces like the 1000 mile ones you linked are the way to go. I have these and really like them. They also come in an off-white color and the length you want.

u/Innerpiece · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Hell yeah TZs are the shit, though I don't see any in maroon/purple other than these but I like the muted tone on the Leffot ones. You should demand and full refund, to be able to keep the boots, and a coupon code for your next purchase for being slighted so.

u/Shneap · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

I contacted TanMango when I got my pair of these. They're the off-white vans with these laces

TanMango said he got the 27" and they were a little short but I find the 36" to be a little too long. The laces also look much different than in the picture. The yellow is a little bit brighter, but the brown in the picture is more of an orange.

u/WaylandC · 1 pointr/Sneakers

Yes, with this, no as is.

u/ReubenFlagg · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

Yeah, they are the laces the seller had on them. I am not a fan either. He also sent the originals, but they are pretty worn. I was thinking of getting these. Any other recommendations for laces?

What color laces are they? Are those considered "white" on amazon...or are those "beige?" The beige looks quite a bit darker than these, but I certainly wouldn't want bright white laces.

How could you have any cake other for your birthday than funfetti cake?? That's, like, the ultimate birthday cake!

These lock laces would make me very happy by preventing me from having to tie my shoelaces over and over while running.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! And happy birthday! Thanks for the contest. :)

I've been using TZ's flat laces.

u/AJayH · 1 pointr/interestingasfuck

This is cool and all. But I switched to Lock Laces a few years ago. Haven't tied my shoes since.

u/keeptrackoftime · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

voila. Cut them to length.

u/lessthanjake · 1 pointr/TeenMFA

Just look up boot laces or even leather laces. Here's an example of boot laces if that's what you mean

u/wangnutpie1 · 1 pointr/Sneakers
u/zojirushiricecooker · 1 pointr/goodyearwelt

I use these on all of my boots and they've been great.

u/W000DY · 1 pointr/3Dprinting

they're based on [these](No Tie Shoelace Locks - Lace Anchors 2.0 - Never Tie Your Shoes Again(Completes 2 pairs of shoes), so you can see how they're supposed to look. i just think the finished product is cleaner.

u/iShoot556 · 1 pointr/Sneakers

They’re black waxed laces with red silicone dipped tips. They’re nice. Different than the usual waxed with metal tips you see a lot of.

u/jenniferlynn5454 · 1 pointr/orangetheory

I have no input on shoes, but these would help with the quick change. Xpand No Tie Shoelaces System...

u/Wiscanson · 1 pointr/Sneakers

Yeah from the pictures I think I agree with you. Thoughts on how these would look?

u/cyanicenine · 1 pointr/NewSkaters

It's hard to go back to regular laces once you switch. The elastic laces move with your feet so much better than static normal laces. And your shoes fit better since you are actually tightening them up every time instead of just shoving your foot into an already tied shoe like most of us do. The only problem is they are not that attractive. I have some Xpand laces on some other shoes, they also work well and don't use a cinch system so they look nicer. They are more finicky to setup right and they're pricey so I usually just stick with the lock laces and similar knock offs.

u/primeoflife · 1 pointr/Outdoors

Or you could spend a few bucks on these and save some time. I have two sets for my short and full hiking boots. They've been all over the Alps, Himalayas and Appalachian. They work.

I'm thinking about trying red laces in my Amber Harness Iron Rangers (not my image). What are your thoughts on these boot laces and these flat laces (in red)?

u/terrible_nothings · 1 pointr/malefashionadvice

That's exactly how I'm tying mine. Maybe check out something like this if you want something longer?

u/74cam · 1 pointr/running

Here's what I think is the best. Less than $3 shipped, LED shoelaces and you get to pick your color!

u/zugunruh3 · 1 pointr/aspergers

My husband (not ASD but has ADHD) uses a pair of elastic laces that turns sneakers into slip on shoes. You lace and tie your shoes with them normally, cut off the excess lace, use a lighter to melt the end to keep it from unraveling, then put a little clip on the ends to cover up the clipped area. IMO they look pretty nice (people have complimented him on how they look interesting) and the only problem he's had with them is that after 8 months one of the end clips fell off. So far it hasn't affected the functionality at all.

This is the brand he uses if you want to give it a try. You might be able to find something similar in a shoe store but we couldn't and ordered it online for $10.

u/SidRunsUnshod · 1 pointr/BarefootRunning

Don't know how well these work. Might be worth a look. Good luck!

I actually just use a homemade sling made from leather shoelaces. I use a bowline knot to secure the strap around center-column casing (where the legs join to the spider) and that stays strapped on for good. Then on the other end I use a slip knot so that the it can be wrapped around the legs and easily slipped off. Ill post a couple pictures bc it's easier to just see.

What kind of laces are these that I keep seeing around here? They look like they're made of leather? Or are they just waxed boot laces like the ones you can buy here?
