Fit to Be Untied

AKTIVX Sports’ no-tie laces save the day with their ingenious catch-and-release system that makes cinching laces as simple as a tug and a tuck. These high-tech replacement laces—which come in a variety of colors and for different athletic shoe types—will provide a competitive edge by saving valuable time for sports or other activities.
