These laces are wide and thin. They are basically just an elastic ribbon with shoe lace aglets (plastic tips) on the ends. The aglets were slightly curved. Looking at their product pictures in various colors, it would seem this happens randomly as some laces have it and some don't.
I purchased these in a size medium and small. The small was 36 inches from aglet to aglet. The medium was about 42 inches, if I recall correctly.
After you lace them up and tie them, you could conceivably slip your foot out and then back into the shoe. The problem is that the laces kind of migrate a little bit and the shoe feels very different when you put it back on. Sometimes uncomfortably different....enough to call for retying the laces.
The only way I was able to alleviate some of the issue was getting help from a family member. I put my foot in the shoes with the laces as loose as possible then he pulled on the laces starting near the toe and going up to the ankle until they were not loose anymore, but....he did not pull them tight either. He only tightened them enough so they lay flat against the shoe. Then he tied and retied the shoes until the tension felt right.
This worked well for awhile, being essentially set to my foot in the shoe, the laces did not migrate for several times worn. But eventually they did migrate again, causing the old issues to come back. So now I just treat them as normal laces and untie and retie them when I wear or take off the shoes. Considering that in the end they did not work significantly better than traditional laces, these just end up being too much money for what you get. Especially since their seem to be several other brands offering multi-packs of 3 elastic laces for about $10.
I've considered trying the Caterpy, Coolknot, and Xtenex laces next. Those may prevent the migration issues due to their special design. Unable to freely travel through the eyelet holes due to how they are made. But I'm not happy with the idea of having to spend even more money. Is elastic really worth $10 for 5 feet? I'm not so convinced.
