Description

Xpand no tie laces are one of a kind. Our elastic lacing system includes our zero memory flat elastic shoelaces allowing kids, adults, athletes, elderly and everyone in-between to convert almost any shoes or boots into a fully adjustable no tie slip-ons. You can use either "stealth mode" or "visible mode" when installing the Laces(see pictures). The Xpand Lacing System includes (2) 52” Xpand Laces which expand to over 100", 4 Lace Anchors to secure your laces in place and 4 Lace End Clips to give your laces a finished look when mounting in "visible mode". Our patent pending Lace Anchor technology secures the laces in place while remaining adjustable. Once you install the tension to your liking, you simply slip your shoes on and off without any further adjustments day after day. Our no tie shoelaces are perfect for runners and triathletes, hikers, bikers, kids, elderly, handicap, people with feet that swell, individuals lacking fine motor skills and anyone else that has trouble with standard shoelaces. Our system will get the whole family out the door in 3 seconds flat! Our no tie shoelaces requires no adjustments or hard bulky clamps to squeeze like other systems on the market, simply slip on and go. Xpand Lacing System (Patent Pending) is truly one of a kind. Brought to life through Kickstarter and Indiegogo, Xpand RAISED $1,254,598 from 37,560 SUPPORTERS! We continue to grow rapidly as people all around the world spread the word about our unique Lacing System. Up close our laces have a really cool unique look to them, but from eye level, they look like regular shoelaces. This is a great feature because some individuals would rather not let the world know they have a slip-on advantage. Velcro and other no-tie systems scream for attention and take away from the aesthetics of the shoe. Not only is the Xpand Lacing System convenient, these stretch laces bring some serious comfort. Unlike regular shoelaces , the Xpand Lacing System alleviates constriction of pressure points from the top to the bottom of your feet! Installation is literally a snap - Through the center hole, through the top hole, snap into the bottom slot. Done! Installation instructions are included on the back of the package. Our Lace Anchors shown in this image are extremely strong made with Fiber reinforced resin to prevent any warping or breaking. With 5 years of testing on the Lace Anchors from kids and athletes, we are confident your experience will be hassle free! As you can see the Lace Anchors are installed behind the eyelet on the inside of the shoes with NO End Clips - this means that the hardware is hidden and out of view. You simply trim the excess lace off and singe with a lighter (if your an adult). Xpand is very discreet and nobody has to know you are using elastic laces! As you can see the Lace Anchors are installed on the outside of the shoes with the End Clips installed giving the System a finished look. This is great for people that want to quickly and easily adjust the tension. You do not have to use the End Clips, they are optional. You can just trim and singe the tips of the laces (if your an adult) if you would rather. Our Reflective options are perfect for night runners or kids that play outdoors in the evening. As on-coming headlights from a vehicle or overhead street lights hit the Xpand Reflective shoelaces, They will emit a bright glow greatly increasing your whereabouts. All of our shoelaces are made with zero memory elasticity from high grade/quality materials.

abunda_amazon_reviews I bought three types of shoelace systems: Xpand, Hickies, Kicks. 1. Kicks were perfect for converse - easy to install and not a single issue. I have worn my converse with the Kicks approximately a dozen times and no issues. 2. Hickies took about a minute (if that) to understand to install. I run about 3-5 miles a day and do HIIT training. I have had these about two weeks and not a single issue. I am very impressed. It even alleviated some foot pain issue I was experiencing - due to how my laces were being tied. 3. Lastly, Xpand are the absolute worse of the three I purchased. The installation video was 8 minutes long. Seriously, 8 minutes? Then, by time I laced the shoes and attempted one of the clips, the laces had worked too loose to be comfortable. I think that I will be nuts in adjusting these. Whats worse, by time you get them just right they say "do not cut the laces, give it a day or two to make sure". OK, and do what with the 5 inches of lace that you don't need?? Tie it in a bow? Defeats the purpose, don't you think? The installation was difficult, I am unimpressed with the quality and frankly too impatient to even try again.

I have multiple "systems" in different colors on a good amount of my shoes and not just on athletic/running shoes. They're fantastic for airport security or if you're just too lazy/busy to tie your shoes. Once you get them fitting how you want, you'll never have to worry about them again. I will say that getting them just right is a bit tedious because you will want them fitting perfectly before you do any trimming to size. Once you cut the laces down you will not be able to re-lace your shoes with those laces because you'll be cutting off the plastic piece that makes that possible. So, take your time. I recommend lacing them with your foot in the shoe (with socks), then stand up and walk around a bit to see if they're too loose or too snug. My feet swell a bit with a lot of activity, so I don't have mine super-snug. If you're worried about adjustment later, just don't cut them too short. I have these on a couple pairs of PF Flyers, a couple pairs of Chuck Taylor's, a couple Adidas running shoes, and a pair of Nike Free's (I have attached pictures to show how they look on different styles of shoes, with the white pair of Adidas showing how you can "hide" the lace ends. Nike free's not pictured). Now, I will say I don't do much running, so I don't know how they hold up during that type of activity. However, I weight train and circuit train with these on my shoes and they're great. I also have worn these on all day on numerous occasions and have not experienced any discomfort.

I actually feel bad dinging them a star, because the system does work very well. Frankly, the only beefs I have are very minor: 1- you're mainly paying for those plastic clips and optional colors 2- the package I received had clearly been opened before (cleanly ripped across the top), but everything was there. 3- these laces are somewhat narrow (more so when stretched) and shiny and as such are not aesthetically suitable replacements for shoes that are designed for fatter laces or that have roughly textured uppers. The material is identical to the elastic bands you can get at fabric stores, which are much cheaper, but are generally not available in the myriad colors seen here. This product also has pre-sealed ends and those custom tabs, which are not worth the hassle of trying to custom make, even if you could buy cheaper elastic in the right colors. That said, you don't actually have to use those clips if you're okay with just using the lace lock holes in running shoes and tying knots at the ends. Feels a little pricey for something whose material cost is nothing remotely near that, but if you need the colors and hardware, ten bucks is kinda okay. One suggestion I'd have for the company is to move to a single-closure system, whereby the dangly bits on the sides can instead be moved to the center of the tongue and locked in a single, curved clip. It would look much cleaner.
