XTENEX Accu-Fit Adjustable Compression Laces are the ultimate shoelace you don’t have to tie. Xtenex laces feature enlarged (auto-blocking) knots that can be reduced in size by stretching the lace apart, either for lacing or adjusting. Release the tension back to the lace and the knots will reappear to set your fit. Knots create an adjustable compression zone between each set of eyelets to provide a fine tuned ergonomic fit. Your shoes have never been this comfortable.
XTENEX is a worldwide patented elastic lace technology that produces adjustable tensioning between shoe eyelets.
This technology addresses the source of footwear related pain and discomfort: lace migration. Lace migration is the gradual movement of the shoelace 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.
