Any top tips?
I just double tie mine and find that's ok.
I know quite a lot of triathletes use elastic laces cos it's quicker to get in and out of their shoes in transitions, this sort of thing
There is even an article on here about tying shoelaces!
I make a normal bow, but with long 'loops', then knot the loops, and tuck the ends in down the laces. Never have come undone!!
or you could get some of these:
I have lock laces for my shoes - they're fab!
I use xtenex laces. They allow you to vary the tension along the length of the shoe.
The only problem I had is that they take a lot of effort to fit.
I didn't get on with lock laces. They were too tight on the fleshy out part of the foot and caused pain for me. Loosening them made the shoe move around too much.
Double bow for me works. Stays done up for months.
i go extreme...i tie my laces with about 10 knots. they look ridiculous...but never come undone.
apart from once in a xc race..which was a bit hairy..but i survived
