Reviews & FAQ's
I first heard about iBungee during a trail race when my wet shoelaces repeatedly became untied. A woman ran past and said "iBungees." I didn't know what they were but went home and searched on the computer. Now all of my running shoes have iBungee and I never have to worry about my shoes being untied. They also make getting your shoes on and off a breeze (like putting on slippers) and you can adjust the tightness which is really nice on a long run. They work, they're simple to put in your shoes and they seem to last forever. Great product! - Joe A.
I LOVE THESE! I have a tactile issue where I become a little obsessive about things like lace tightness, sand in my shoes, turned socks, etc. and very often I have to get my shoes off in a hurry or else I get really anxious. I would untie and retie my sneakers a dozen times a day as they tightened or loosened. These fix it - ZIP the shoes are off, ZIP they are on and laced up again, and they are always comfortable. They have really been a lifesaver! This particular brand (I've tried others) are sturdy and well made, and are doing a great job. Plus - people ask about them, because they are cool! - Francis U.
A GOOD, STURDY, EASY TO INSTALL SPEED LACE!
I have used many types of speed laces and these will now be the only ones I put in all my shoes. I like the simplicity of them versus some other brands. The lace itself is sturdy. The clasps are tough, and overall they are just a highly functional, easy to install lace. I also like that I can get them in plain black. I don't need a lace that draws attention to itself. As simple as that seems that's a selling point for me! - Dwayne M.
EASY ON AND OFF!
I bought these shoe laces to speed up my transition from my bicycle shoes to my steel toe work boots going to and from work. Different length laces were put on each pair. The cycling shoes slide off and on. The boots slide on and then the laces are wrapped around the top two hooks on the boots. They also work well for airport security check points if you wear laced shoes. - Joseph V.
DREAM LACES FOR RUNNING SHOES!
These are great for runners. During the last five years I have completed 21 marathons. It really bothers me to have shoe laces come undone while running. It seems to take forever to lace them up again. The bungee laces solve that problem as they never come unlaced. Never. Also a small pebble will occasionally get into the shoe. Bungee laces make it quick and easy to get the shoe off and back on. One other advantage. On long runs feet tend to swell a bit. That lace up that felt good at the start can feel tight toward the end of a long run. Bungee laces alleviate or eliminate that problem due to their flex resulting in less damage to toe nails. One observation. I find it best to lace shoes a bit looser with bungee laces compared to conventional ones. I had to experiment a bit to find the most comfortable fit. But since you only lace them once that's no real problem. - Claire G.
GREAT FOR OLDER PEOPLE TOO!
I bought these for my 65 year old father after he had surgery leaving him in a sling for several months. We weren't ready to give in to Velcro but he couldn't tie laces with one hand. These laces are the perfect solution. Once we got them adjusted the first time he was then able to pull his tennis shoes on with one hand. We will be buying more just because they are convenient. No runners here. - Margaret T.
I purchased these stretch laces after having a total right hip replacement. My legs and feet swelled up to where my walking shoes were the only one I could put on. I ordered the laces on Sunday, and they arrived on Wednesday. The laces are round and rather thin, but they work and I am extremely happy I can now wear shoes, not just socks. Theses laces have allowed me to walk outside and work on my therapy. I highly recommend them, if you are unable to tie your shoes for any reason. The first time I put them on, I had to stretch my shoe and tongue out. But the next day, they slipped right on, even with all the post surgery swelling. Try them, you won't be disappointed! - David A.
