Jason.I have never bothered using mine as the 15 secs it take me to do my laces up doesn't bother me


but if you cut the laces then how do you feed it through the next time

I suspect the laces will unravel without the aglets

It's bombed.  Earlier in the week there was a backer pot of £240, which has now dropped to £90.

Velcro, drawstrings, that funny disc Puma did, reebok pump ups.

Theyve all been and gone (well im sure velcro is still around) simply because shoelaces arent a problem (for the average person anyway)

the answer to your question seren is - you don't. Like many triathletes OH and I use lace-locks, when you thread the laces through the first time you judge how much of the laces you need to be able to shove your feet into the shoes, and cut the laces accordingly. When you have your feet in the shoes you  just pull on the bits of laces that are threaded through the little retainer, takes less than10 secs to get the shoes on and tightened. You never pull the laces all the way out when you remove the shoes, just loosen them enough to get your feet out. Another tip when first threading is to singe the ends with a match, they then slide through the little widget very easily. They've been on the market for at least 15 years and cost little.
