Having CP, as I age, it's hard to bend over and tie my shoelaces. I usually either have to ask Mama Melissa to tie them for me, or I take them off, tie them loosely and then slip them on. But that causes the constant feeling that my shoes are going fall off.

So, when I was offered the chance to review the Elastolaces, I gladly accepted it.


^^what I received^^

The premise of these are simple; lace shoes as normal, but instead of tying them, thread the laces through the clips and secure with the lace locks, adjust the clips to a comfortable size, then just slide your foot into the shoe and go.


^^item in use^^

I did not find these any easier to use. Even with the clips adjusted to a loose fit in the beginning, sliding my foot into my shoes required more work and most of the time, the tongue would slide down into the shoe. I suppose threading the laces through the tongue would solve this particular problem, but my daily sneakers don't have this option. Using a shoehorn did not help to put the shoe on either.

Disabled people are going to have a VERY hard time using these laces. Even if they do get the laces into the shoe as a normal lace would, the locks take a LOT of effort to close and lock completely. Unless you can thread the laces to a comfortable looseness while wearing the shoe, it will make putting the shoe on harder.

These can be purchased from Amazon for $7.75.

FINAL THOUGHTS
These are a good idea in theory, but I personally think it would be easier for a disabled person to pre-tie their tie-able shoes to a comfortable level and then double-knot them or just wear a pair of slip-on shoes.
