I am so tired of athletic shoes of any kind and their overlong laces which never seem to stay tied. I even end up cutting the laces to shorten them and still they lengthen and come undone and tripping me up. It can't just be me with this issue. I was talking to someone this morning who runs a lot and she has the same problem and recommended I take a look at a Keen shoe or one like it. Keen shoes are sold at REI and I had to laugh when I saw the "shoe features" section of the shoe choices. One of the attributes to chose from is "vegan". Vegan shoes?
I guess what I want is a shoe with lock laces or some such which require no laces but instead has laces which tighten with a locking button. Sort of like this.
