Riplaces falls in the category of speed laces - but they give you SO much more than a no-tie slip on shoe. That's not even biggest advantage of Riplaces. We have 100's of athletes using our speed laces now. As a matter of fact, three of the top 10 finishers at the Ironman World Championships 2016 had Riplaces on. So what makes them so different? and elite? 1) Riplaces gives you the exact tension needed at each eyelet by giving you different size bungees in your kit. 2) You have ZERO left over lace hanging off your shoe. 3) They have a very clean look on your shoe. 4) Very easy to install or move to another shoe.
We've got two things going for us. Function and Cool - both are excellent.
