A review of my latest product purchase: Phoenix Fit UK Laces.

Pfffft who needs laces?

It’s every nurseries/school worst nightmare. No one wants to be spending their time doing 30 children shoelaces up. Even as a parent it’s pretty hard “Come here your laces have come undone” “You’ll trip over your shoe laces”… sounding familiar????
We have tried many songs; many learning techniques but my daughter hasn’t grasped a single one yet. She just isn’t ready.

When one day last week, I stumbled across the ‘Elastic Lace System’, and oh my goodness they are amazing.


I currently use them on my daughter’s football boots, it saves so much time and she can put them on herself.
I know they don’t actually teach her how to tie laces, but we will get there. Right now for us, it’s not a priority, and I’d rather promote independence, and I will teach her at a later stage when not everything is a battle or ends in tears and tantrums because she can’t do it. Why would I want to put her through pain and upset and the feeling of not achieving when there is this amazing product to help. Independence leads to increased self-esteem, and increased self-esteem leads to boosted levels of confidence which in turn will help children be able to tie shoelaces, and not get knocked back so easily.

The elastic laces come in eight bright eye catching designs and are very strong and durable. Personally, I feel they are tighter than laces and feel more secure. They will not come untied and therefore won’t become a potential tripping hazard.

phoenixfituk.com say “has been rigorously tested to ensure optimum performance. With exceptional lock strength, wearers can depend on an incredibly comfortable, perfect fit however far they run. Made from high-grade plastic with top quality stainless steel springs, our locks have been designed to grip elastic lacing securely, with no slips or stretching”

Personally, I feel they are tighter than laces and feel more secure. They will not come untied and therefore won’t become a potential tripping hazard.

Phoenix Fit UK Laces are for everybody of all ages. They really do save time. No more “tying shoelace songs” in this household…
