Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

This is the lacing system that I have been using for more than 4 years, starting with its first prototypes. It is now perfectly well tested and refined and is part of my daily life. It holds my foot perfectly on all terrain and without constriction, regardless of the race distance or weather conditions. Unchain Lacing System is made of ultra-resistant silicone and its micrometric adjustment is reliable and super comfortable. This is by far the best system for lacing sports shoes.

Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

Surprising ! At the beginning, I could not reckon that Unchain Lacing System coud bring me an extra advantage with my mountain bike downhill shoes. Actually, it does. I was kind of astonished. My shoes just felt changed to give more more agility. They now follow my feet moves with a greater flexibility. I feel like I have a better balance on churned up and slopy tracks with lots of mud. I would say that the Unchain Lacing System brought me some most appreciated extra confidence !

Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

This is the lacing system that I validate. I have it on all my running shoes. The biggest advantage is its perfect foothold! It does not make you feel that you have flabby shoes. On the contrary, you enjoy perfect support, as with traditional shoe laces, greater comfort in addition.

  Florian Guiter

Osteopathe, sports biomechanist

Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

I was lucky to be able to test these silicone laces and I must say that they are very satisfying. Today I only run with hem. They offer a true foothold and a perfectly balanced tensioning around the foot. The foot is well held, without feeling too tight. Mechanically, they offer a real plus in terms of stress distribution, which makes the races easier. I highly recommend them!

  Yves Lardoux

Competitor, president of a table tennis club manager of a shop selling table tennis equipment

Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

Initially, out of curiosity and because I'm a bit sluggish : I tend not to undo my laces when removing my shoes, which does not do them any good. With Unchain Lacing System, the sensation is extraordinary : I put on and take off my shoes like a slipper. Not only do I save time, but the foothold is perfect and it offers me a bespoke and comfortable fit, even when the foot swells a little with the effort. No more risk of falling with loosened laces. It's a real revolution! After trying It fitted both my running shoes and my table tennis shoes.

Compétiteur, président de club de tennis de table. Responsable d’une boutique de vente de matériel de tennis de table

Why do I use Unchain Lacing System?

A priori j’étais assez sceptique, surtout pour l’utiliser avec des pédales automatiques. J’avais peur qu’Unchain Lacing System soit trop élastique pour permettre un pédalage efficace et qu’en tirant la pédale, je perde de la puissance.
J’ai été vraiment surpris après plusieurs tests, car le maintien est super efficace : mieux encore, il m’offre une liberté de mouvement latéral, comme si j’étais en pédales plates, que je ne croyais pas possible.
Autre avantage, et pas des moindres, c’est que je ne met plus les lacets dans le pédalier ou la chaîne…. Enfin un avantage superbe quand tu roule dans la boue pour laver tes chaussures les lacets sèchent tout de suite : c’est magique ! Et puis vu que je suis un peu feignant, Unchain Lacing System m’évite de refaire mes lacets à chaque fois, et ça c’est le top !

Lorsque j’ai essayé Unchain Lacing System, j’ai été tout de suite impressionnée par son grand confort. Après le premier réglage, le laçage est parfaitement adapté à la chaussure et en bouge plus. Ne plus jamais avoir besoin de faire de nœud est aussi très pratique. J’en suis vraiment ravie
