Okay. Last post about shoelaces but I could not end without completing what I had to say. Last post I gushed about the cord lock as a way of not worrying about loose shoelaces flaying about and creating havoc. I thought this week that I should mention another system which is popular. One is a patented system called Lock Laces (registered trademark and all that) that is not pictured here but there is a web site for, and the other very similar system is pictured below:
Personally I do not use anything but the cord locks I wrote about in my last post. I don’t like the stretch style shoe lace which gives it a “cushy” loose feel,at least on my feet, nor the cost. My own personal preference, but I do think this type of alternative is better than just tying the shoes. You may like that kind of system better though. I have tried both, and find no fault with the lower cost alternative which has proven very reliable, but admittedly does not make a dashing fashion statement.
Coming up is a series on safety while running and walking. It will also apply to bicycling but I will leave biking safety to someone else with more experience. I ride largely on the local trail system avoiding the streets whenever I can.
Get up, get out, and do something!
