Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not great I hated to give up my OLD shoes that came with no-tie laces. I could slide them open, put on the shoes, then tighten them as I wanted. But the best pair of NEW shoes came only with traditional laces. So I bought these and installed them fairly easily. BUT I fould out they aren't supposed to be adjusted after installation. I could pull my Keens on and off. But they would be too loose with some socks and too tight with others, and if I wanted to wear my orthotics, I struggled to get the shoes on. I am sadly going back to traditional laces and looking in the future for shoes with no-tie laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These are great! I use these on a pair of Merrell shoes. Once you get them adjusted to your comfort level these are very convenient. No more worrying about your shoes coming untied or laces that are too long. I noticed some other reviewers mentioned that you cannot tighten them. I had the opposite problem at first. Initially, I had them adjusted too tight and they were cutting off my circulation. Once I had them adjusted properly I have found them much more comfortable than traditional laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product I have high insteps so traditional shoe laces hurt my feet. I though I give these a try. I put a pair on my Merrill Outland Mid Hiking Boots. They have made them much more comfortable. I did have some reservations about not able to keep them tight enough. That has not been a problem. A big plus is now I can slip on and off my hiking boots without undoing the laces. I am going to replace all my lace shoes and mid high boots with these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Working great, in and out in seconds! My motivation to buy these laces was the amount of time I spent tying shoes when I leave and return to both my and friends homes. I properly laced my shoes for support which took time. My better half didn't like waiting after she slid on her shoes that lack laces. Verdict? Success! I can enter and exit my shoes in seconds, and I still get satisfactory support.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad I bought these to put in my Altra trail running shoes. I've worn Salomon's for years and I've gotten used to the quick ties, so I decided to try these out. They're not bad, but they don't give you the same custom feel that the salomon laces do. Install is pretty easy, but it takes a few day to dial in the tension. I feel like they're secure on my feet in a comfortable way now for walking around and going to the gym. I would be nervous to do plyometrics in them for fear of the shoe having the ability to move around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yankz's are the best these things are the best. I have 3 or 4 pairs now and I recommend them to everone I know. I am buying my wife a pair right now. they stay tight for running and they are loose enought for casual ware. It take a bit to adjust them so that they are perfet but one you get it that is the last time. No joke, that is it. I have at lease 100 miles running on my last pair and no adjustment. The reflective ones really show up to. Get em, get em, get em, they ar great. now if they only made them for hunting boots.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome little lace I never intended to use this thing, but I originally bought them for my wife who always take kids in and out of house and need to take off shoes. After I installed them to her Asics, she absolutely loved them, and asked me to replace all of her shoes (though she hated most of the color offered...) With my envy eyes and my gearhead spirit, I gave a shot for my running shoes, which was big thing for me as I HATED idea of not having traditional shoe lace. I was wrong. It was one of the greatest things I bought for my running life. Adjustment is easy, slip in and out in just a simple pull. Just as ad said. Read the instruction carefully and follow it, and you have great quick lace system for any shoes of yours. So far I ran over 1 year in Asics Kayano using Yankz, and they are still going strong. Great buy for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Handicapped too! On of the most aggravating things about stroke-recovery is putting on and tying shoes one-handed. Yes, I can tie shoes one-handed, with difficulty, but these laces make putting on my shoes simple and quick. Coupled with a lightweight pair of NB100s, and I was the envy of fellow rehab patients, and therapists said these worked better than any other combo they had seen. It's been 6 weeks, I'm back to get more for other shoes to wear.
