Do you YANKZ? I love myYANKZ (Giveaway:)

Do you YANKZ? Know what YANKZ are? Let me tell ya!!

From the YANKZ site: Expandable cords provide an unsurpassed level of “personalized” fit and comfort. No more tying, retying, double knots or frazzled dirty laces. Slip on your shoe with Yankz!

I saw these laces at an event and wasn't too sure I would really like them or not. I am one that likes to tie my shoes tight (usually too tight) and with double knots to make certain they don't come undone. So the thought of NOT tying my shoes had me curious?! I contacted the fine folks at YANKZ to see about doing a review with a giveaway and P.j. was super kind enough to agree. I had just purchased a new pair of Brooks Adrenaline in the purple color but I didn't like the purple laces (little too much overkill on the purple:) so the timing on this was perfect.

More info from the YANKZ site:
*A personalized fit with two different points of adjustment on the shoe, creating the most comfortable fit.
    *Expandable lace cords form to your foot and reduce blistering and bruising.
   *Available in many color combinations, including reflective colors for early morning and night activity.
   *Uniquely designed for many different sports such as walking, running, aerobics, biking and   other sports.
   *And finally, you never tie laces again

YANKZ come in 22 different colors and you can customize your own! I choose the Multi Black color laces. When I got ready to put the laces on my shoes I asked my hubz to please help me as I was a little confused. He made me watch and do the other shoe myself, but after watching him,  reading the directions and watching the video it really is EASY to do!


 In fact here is the video

Let me just say I LOVE these laces!! They make my shoes just tight enough and they don't make me feel like my shoe is going to fall/come off my foot at all. I went for a 4mi run the first time in them then I ran a half marathon in them still a little concerned that they might be too loose for the half but once again to my surprise I LOVED them! I even think they helped me not to get blisters on my toes because they were just the right "tightness"!



I still haven't cut off the "extra" part yet wanted to make sure they worked out ok!

I love the multi black, but the white reflective is sweet to.
I would like to have a pair because I double tie my shoes so that they will not come untied while I'm running. Would love to give these guys a try.

Went to the site, like the black reflective (and the way the sound plays when you change the color chart!)

Great colors - I think the multi-black or plum would be fun! I really need a pair of Yankz cause I am constantly fighting with my laces -- too tight, too loose, coming untied!
