The Xtenex system is patented worldwide. Its’ main objective is the relief of painful foot distress due to poorly fitting shoes. The idea is to eliminate irritations like chafing of the foot against the shoe, or the foot going “to sleep” – that feeling of tingling pins and needles to the feet. The introduction of knots hold the fit, and keep laces from slipping.
The Xtenex triathlon laces are worn by triathletes over the world, including Canada, Australia, and the United States. They are heralded as “the lace of genius, and are quite an advanced innovation.
