Xtenex elastic shoelaces are produced ergonomically, meaning that the design is intended for both comfort and serviceability.

Ergonomics deals with the human aspect involved in the making of a product. The design staff at Xtenex strives to provide a shoelace that meets the comfort needs, both physical, and mental, of the consumer. Physical comfort pertains to how how the laces feel to wear, and mental comfort is how they appeal to the eye.

Efficiency in design makes a product easier to use. The lacing system developed by Xtenex is a prime example of that principle.
