Gear Pick of the Week: X-Tenex Laces

X-Tenex Laces (£9.00)

Kerry says: This week's Gear Pick is a great budget-friendly pre-payday treat. They may look simple (and colourful) but these inexpensive elastic knotted laces could transform your running.

Simply lace up the trainers and use the knots to adjust the tension between each set of eyelets. They don't slip or loosen, and the elasticity allows them to hold the shoe firmly in place around your foot without pinching or restricting movement. Once you've set the laces up for the first time you can slip your shoes on and off quickly without loosening the laces for next time. Pretty cool, huh?
