No athlete has time to fumble around with shoelaces. One runner got fed up with them and created no-tie Caterpy Laces!

Caterpy Laces feature elastic bump technology which allows you to customize tension at every eyelet row to match your foot shape.

Just lace the shoes as you normally would, adjust the tension at each eyelet row and the bumps hold the laces in place with no need to tie a knot at the top or worry about laces coming untied.

The customized tension allows for better blood circulation to the feet, especially as they swell during activity.

Caterpy Laces come in a variety of bright and fun colors.

The laces are one size fits all, so they are great for kids and adults!

Once they are inserted in the shoes and you find your most comfortable fit, the ends can be cut to the perfect length to tuck back into the laces or leave out.
