Elastic Shoe Laces
Elastic shoe laces are made from elastomer. This type of lace contains a stretchy band that loosens as soon as one pulls on it. Elastic shoelaces were invented to make shoe tying easier for people with disabilities or those with a shaky hand. The elastic shoelace also benefits people who have foot problems such as arthritis due to its easy-to-tie properties.
Elastic Sneaker Laces
Elastic sneaker laces are often designed with the intention of being able to stretch, allowing for tightness adjustment without needing to re-lace one's sneakers. The purpose of this is so that one doesn't have to take their shoes off every time they tighten them.
