I first came across Greeper laces at the London Tri show in March 2019. My father and I saw a photo on a stand of a top local age group athlete and coach, it was Tom Ward from Passionfit and we decided to look at what product his banner was advertising. As a result we met Peter Greedy the owner of Greeper laces. Peter was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his brand and concept. He spoke about the brand and how it benefits triathlon and how Greeper laces can benefit people in all walks of life.
We discovered that he is a local company to where I live. My father and I are very keen on supporting local companies when we can so we decided to purchase a couple of pairs of Greeper laces. You can never have enough laces or pieces of kit! Peter spoke very passionately about the laces and this was the main reason why we bought a couple of pairs.
We have not looked back… I have previously had bad experiences with elastic laces with the two main ones being that they cut in on the top of my foot causing abrasions when I was training and racing. The other, I was running and they snapped which leads to a very loose shoe, which kept falling off. So I decided to stop wearing them and use normal laces until I used Greeper laces.
Greeper laces, as seen in the photos, are a set laces that are secured by a toggle. To tighten you just have to pull the loops and to release you need to push the button and pull the toggle up. Due to the normal look and feel of a lace they don’t dig in on the top of your foot so you can run for long extended periods of time without them applying a lot of pressure across the foot. They are very easy to put into your shoes and once they are in your shoes they will not come undone. They are very quick and easy when in transition in a race and even when not racing they look very stylish.
I could not recommend them enough. So please check them out on https://www.greeper.com and also their various social medias which can be found through my social media links.
