Tell a Friend about this Item
elastic laces fit ANY shoe that has an eyelet size of approximately 3 to 4 mm. They are a perfect choice for most activities involving normal foot movement; from everyday wear to running. These elastic laces are a favorite in athletic shoes, hybrid golf shoes, casual shoes, senior shoes, children's shoes and ANY shoe type imaginable. With three (3) lengths to choose from, you can find the best elastic lace for your shoes by counting your eyelet pairs. The X 300 is the flagship product of the Xtenex Lace lineup. These were the laces worn by Jan Frodeno (Gold Medalist) and The Xtenex X 300 series Simon Whitfield (Silver Medalist) during the 2008 Olympic Triathlon in Beijing, China.

XTENEX (indeXed-TENsioning-nEXus) is a worldwide patented elastic shoelace technology that produces adjustable tensioning between a shoes eyelets. This technology addresses the source of footwear related pain and discomfort: lace migration. Lace migration is the gradual movement of the shoe lace toward the forward bend of a shoe, which causes two main problems:
Binding; a tightening and restricting pressure at the top of the shoe. This can lead to foot fatigue, pain, numbness and restriction of natural foot swelling. It loosens the fit around the footwear's metatarsal area, which causes increased slipping and reduction of forward foot stabilization. This can produce heat friction, which often leads to painful blisters. The unique design of the XLace lacing system solves the problem of lace migration.
XLaces 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 lessens the tension; fewer knots between eyelets increases tension. This technology enhances footwear fit, comfort and performance through its many advantages.
Advantages of XLaces :
Expansion: Expand during natural foot swelling and eliminate foot compression.
Do not slip: The knots maintain the original fit by restricting involuntary lace movement through the eyelets (lace migration) keeping the foot stable in the foot bed and increased comfort.
No plastic pieces are needed.
Eliminates "dual-compression impact": Impact #1 = shoe sole hits ground. Impact #2 = foot hits foot bed/sole of shoe.
Converts laced shoe into a perfect fitting slip-on: Never Tie Your Shoelaces Again!
Asymmetrical lacing: The shoe upper can be molded to the natural, nonsymmetric, form of the foot by independently adjusting the tension between each set of eyelets. The unique ability to have different tension zones along the entire lacing system results in a custom fit every time. Enhanced lateral stabilization: This is achieved by increasing the tension along the left or right side of a shoe upper. This helps to stabilize and support the foot within the foot bed while enhancing footwear and foot care technologies such as orthotics, arch supports and insole technologies.
X200 series elastic shoelaces have a an eyelet diameter size (from 2.5 to 3 mm). These elastic shoelaces are a perfect choice for most activities involving normal foot movement; from everyday wear to running. These elastic shoelaces are a favorite in traditional golf shoes, casual shoes, senior shoes, orthopedic shoes, medical shoes, diabetic shoes and ANY shoe type imaginable with a slightly smaller than normal eyelet size. With two (2) lace lengths to choose from, you can find the best lace length for your shoes by counting your eyelet pairs.
LENGTH OPTIONS: 20"/50cm | 30"/75cm TIP SIZE: 3mm
Length Selection Guide To determine the proper XLace™ length for your shoes:
Count the number of eyelets on your shoe
With your foot in the shoe, measure the space between your eyelets. (Note: always round-up to the next whole number (inch/centimeter) when measuring spacing.) Using the guide below select the proper length for your shoes.
How To Install BEFORE YOUR START
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN when you first install the lace
You must stretch the lace to collapse the knot Insert foot in shoe PRIOR to lacing STEPS
Insert lace tip through eyelet.
Grab lace tip and a section of lace side. Stretch lace to collapse knots. While stretched, feed the lace through the eyelets until the desired section of lace has been reached. Gently release the lace and knots will reappear.
Repeat the operation step by step. REMEMBER Insert foot in shoe PRIOR to lacing. Lace your shoe loosely to start. More knots between eyelets will produce a looser fit. • Less knots between eyelets will produce a tighter fit. • For best performance allow some give in the lace. VIDEO
