ELASTIC SHOELACES AS TOUGH AS YOU ARE!Thousands of runners use Xtenex, the leading shoelaces for athletes.
What is Xtenex?Xtenex (indeXed-TENsioning-nEXus) is a worldwide-patented elastic shoelace technology that produces adjustable tension between shoe eyelets. Our unique “knotted” design addresses the source of footwear related pain, discomfort and injury, while giving athletes everywhere the best performance and comfort.
What Makes Xtenex Professional Series Laces Different?At Xtenex we set out to create athletic shoelaces that was superior to cotton laces in every way. Cotton laces have basically remained unchanged since they were first created. The problem with cotton laces is that they do not stretch or move with your feet, making them a poor choice for runners and athletes. Over time runners who use cotton laces will experience increased foot pain and an increased risk of injury. Take one look at our shoe laces and you will likely notice some major differences between Xtenex laces and your average cotton shoelace. The first thing that you will notice is that Xtenex laces are covered in knots. These little knots are specifically designed to ensure that your running laces will never slip or move giving your shoe the perfect fit and support every time.
Ok so knots are great, but anyone can tie knots in their shoelace right? Actually the real difference comes from what’s inside our laces. Inside each of our shoe laces is a rubber core covered in an elastic fabric. This allows the laces to stretch and move with your foot when you run, making our laces perfect for triathletes, mud runners, marathoners, and everyday athletes alike.
What Advantages Do Xtenex Laces Offer?Lace migration is the gradual movement of the shoelace toward the forward bend of a shoe. This frustrating problem causes tightening and restriction in the shoe, which puts pressure on certain parts of the foot. This can lead to foot pain, numbness, friction blisters, and restriction of natural foot swelling.
Xtenex laces have an elastic core and a series of knots along the entire length of the lace at consistent length intervals. Stretch the lace and the knots disappear, allowing you to thread the lace through the eyelets. Release the tension and the knots reappear. More knots between eyelets reduce the tension; fewer knots between eyelets increase tension. This technology enhances footwear fit, comfort and performance.
