Review: Greeper Sport laces
Still the leader of the triathlon pack, these laces will help you get feet into (and out of) running shoes quickly
We’ve tested Greeper Laces before and, despite fierce competition from French outfit Xtenex and their bobbly efforts, in our eyes – and on our feet – the UK product continues to lead the way.
For those new to tri or 220, the traditional lacing system is replaced with a brilliant mechanism that requires no tying. Simply guide the Greeper through eyelets in reverse before clamping in place at the toe-end via a miniature plastic connector.
Back at the tongue end, the ingenious toggle requires a gentle tug of its protruding loops to tighten. Pull the toggle to ease pressure. Sprinkling your shoe with talc and a modicum of practice will have you T2-ing faster than ever before. But, more importantly, your foot feels secure – unlike other systems that can leave your foot slipping about like Bambi on ice.
