Can't believe how easy it is to put on my sneakers and how great they feel without a bow tie! Great work, Charles! Actually, well worth the wait. Can't wait to share with family. Best Regards, Victoria

      I took a huge risk cutting of the front of my laces this afternoon before heading to class. I regret feeling regret in the first place. I completely forgot about my shoes until I got off the bus home and realized I had lace anchors installed!
      Basically, the lace anchors work perfectly! This is my 2nd and final compliment of praise @ chuck. I hope lace anchors 3.0 is 1000X more successful. You deserve it my fellow awesome netizen~

      I knew I would like not having bows on my shoes (they get caught on racks and equipment at work) but I was a little surprised how much more comfortable my shoes were with the lace anchors. There's no bow to tickle my ankles under my pant cuffs, and the top of the shoe fits better; they used to be a little too tight right underneath the bows. Great product & I wish you success selling these in brick & mortar stores.

      Mine arrived on saturday the 1st of June 2013 in the middle of Germany. Great package design for a great produt. I hope you will be successful with your product after the kickstarter campaign.You should make it available in sneaker stores (such as Foot Locker)....

      Arrived last week near Vienna.
      Simple and perfect :)
      Andy Bruce 5 days ago Backer
      So I've been using them for over a week now and they work great on my sneakers which is too be expected but not so great on my dress shoes for work as they are ankle high boots but then I thought that would be the case. It's much harder to squeeze my foot into the dress shoes and they are not as tight as they should be but it's passable and they certainly look better without laces (until now I have been tucking them inside after tying them). I'll be cutting my laces on the other two shoes tonight, one has already been trimmed.
      This was the first project I backed Charles so thanks for making it such a positive experience, hopefully all the other ones I've backed go as smoothly and good luck with all your future ones.

      Got mine, awesome. First pair of sneakers set up with anchors. Love the change and simplicity.
      Can't imagine what inventions you are going to come up with in future. Thanks for the opportunity to support your Anchor project and wish you all the best.
      DAVID TOMASHESKI on May 28 Backer
      I finally installed my Lace Anchors 2.0 and they are great. They are holding my shoes snugly.If anything I have them to tight and will have to fiddle around with them a bit. But I am loving them and will probably take the plunge and cut my laces soon.
      Daniel Mitchell on May 24 Backer
      Mine arrived in Calgary today; fitted them to shoes, working great so far. Thanks!
      alargeau on May 23 Backer
      Hi Charles! Just got my Lace Anchors today in the mail (was very excited!) and installed them on a pair. They're just perfect! Thanks from France!!!
      Ronald Lust on May 22 Backer
      Mine arrived a couple of days ago and I already installed them. This really is a great yet simple solution ^^
      Jamille on May 21 Backer
      Cut mine pretty close, no problems at all, It depends on the laces. I will sear them just in case.
      I have honestly been waiting for this invention since I was 5. Boots, Dress shoes, yeah sure, but everything else, why you got them floppy bits of string everywhere?
      Thanks so much, they are amazing.
      Richard K on May 21 Backer
      Got mine on Vashon Island, WA, US. Installed in less than 5 minutes, so far so good. Thanks!

      I laced up my kicks and anchored them bad boys! Looks fantastic! I can't get past how simple these things are and work greatly! One question though, what's the difference between LA 1.0 and LA 2.0? :P
      I diamond laced my Marc Ecko Unlimited kicks I got years ago collecting dust because I didn't like the big bows, now I diamond laced those things thanks to your vid lol.
      Also used the under over method on my Adidas driving sneaks. Truthfully, I have been lacing those things up with over unders without actually knowing that the over under lacing method is actually a thing. I guess I was above the curve on that one XD.
      Chuck, are you on pinterest or instagram or is Lace Anchors? Great to post pics of kickstater's kicks of how they lace em up IMO.
      Happy lacing and Anchorin' everyone!

      Anthony Derham on May 20 Backer
      Delivered today in the UK! The Anchors are brilliant, packaging is sweeeet too! Just done my Vans, now onto the Converse. Feels so much better than shoving the laces down the sides of my shoes like I always have done! Last pack are going on my work shoes tomorrow. Brilliant design and a great kickstarter project. Thanks very much!

      Rick Pearce on May 20 Backer
      OMG, they are awesome. Just installed them on my black Saucony Grid walkers I use for work and they are doing exactly what they're supposed to. Got a very loose bow tied for now, but I can see cutting them really soon. Incredible, simple design. Thanks, Chuck.
      Ruzu on May 20 Backer
      I finished installing all 4 lace anchors a few minutes ago as of writing this. I had to deviate from the instructions chuck gave in the video because it was just a little too loose for me. After I was finished, I tied my shoes again very lightly, then began to run in place. The laces fell apart of course, but my shoes stayed on the entire time.
      If a shoe god doesn't exist, then Chuck would fill the role perfectly. Thank you for such a great product Chuck

      I was a bit worried at first because I have big feet and the shoes I wear (Onitsuka Tiger's) are hard enough to get on and off. But with the anchors in I've had no issues! w00t!!!

      Hi @Charles Harris,
      Thanks for your reply. I got reward this weekend. I think I posted re-shipment form at end of March. It shouldn't be April 18th because I was very busy at those weeks. It's strange, but anyway I got reward finally.

      @Kani,
      That is very strange, I did indeed see your submission but it shows it coming through on April 18th? Very strange. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. You will get tracking today from your shipment going out this afternoon.

      kani on April 21, 2014

      Hey @Charles Harris,
      I already sent re-shipment form correctry, and it was one month ago.
      Are you fooling me?

    13. Charles Harris 7-time creator on April 19, 2014

      Hello Kani,

      I just went through our re-shipment records and it looks like you have never told us you have not received your package. When you fill out the re-shipment form please include the same address as you used for the survey. We will then pull tracking if available and if no tracking is available we will re-ship for you. Hope this helps!

      So I've been using them for over a week now and they work great on my sneakers which is too be expected but not so great on my dress shoes for work as they are ankle high boots but then I thought that would be the case. It's much harder to squeeze my foot into the dress shoes and they are not as tight as they should be but it's passable and they certainly look better without laces (until now I have been tucking them inside after tying them). I'll be cutting my laces on the other two shoes tonight, one has already been trimmed.
      This was the first project I backed Charles so thanks for making it such a positive experience, hopefully all the other ones I've backed go as smoothly and good luck with all your future ones.

      Got mine on Sat right before vacation to Disney with the family on Sunday. Walked over 20 miles in 3 days and the Lace Anchors worked brilliantly!!!! Had to make a couple adjustments to get the comfort and feel right due to the lace tension being different but could not be more pleased. Kept smiling as I saw people stoping and tying their shoes and I never did... even at the airport. AWESOME... AWESOME... product. Well worth the wait!!!!

      These are great. Received mine about a week ago (IL, USA) and put them in my work shoes and my "everyday" shoes. After a few days testing I finally snipped the laces in my work shoes! It felt great! My everyday shoes have an insole that lifts up so I just tucked them under that; that wasn't possible with my work shoes.
      Thanks Charles!

      hi Charles Harris, I have to comment you on your awesome customer service in regards to keeping us all in the loop. Hurdles are to be expected and will go away as you will become more aware of the best way of handle this business and shipping of the product. I have all confident that you will make good to all your backers and will wait patiently like you requested. So looking forward to taking them to Europe this fall and placing them into the Christmas stockings for our barely adult sons. Again I lift my hat for your outstanding customer service so far. These updates make all the difference and many companies cut take a slice of that pie. (FLorida, patiently waiting)

      I got my order this past Wednesday. Took about 40 min total to install on both feet, would have been about 25 min but I lost a lace anchor on my standard beige carpet most people have in the u.s.. Keep track of the anchors on installation and try to avoid carpet! Luckily, I found the missing one. They look and feel great and have not come loose on my adidas sambas. Love not tieing my laces. I did some rough estimation to see how much time these save me. Suppose you take 25 seconds to tie your shoes, subtract 10 seconds I find it takes to put on shoes with lace anchors. You end up with 15 seconds saved each time . Suppose you tie your shoes twice a day, that's 30 seconds a day, 210 seconds a week, 900 seconds a month, and about 11, 000 seconds a year or 180 minutes or 3 hours. Not a bad investment!

      I laced up my kicks and anchored them bad boys! Looks fantastic! I can't get past how simple these things are and work greatly! One question though, what's the difference between LA 1.0 and LA 2.0? :P
      I diamond laced my Marc Ecko Unlimited kicks I got years ago collecting dust because I didn't like the big bows, now I diamond laced those things thanks to your vid lol.
      Also used the under over method on my Adidas driving sneaks. Truthfully, I have been lacing those things up with over unders without actually knowing that the over under lacing method is actually a thing. I guess I was above the curve on that one XD.
      Chuck, are you on pinterest or instagram or is Lace Anchors? Great to post pics of kickstater's kicks of how they lace em up IMO.
      Happy lacing and Anchorin' everyone!

      I finished installing all 4 lace anchors a few minutes ago as of writing this. I had to deviate from the instructions chuck gave in the video because it was just a little too loose for me. After I was finished, I tied my shoes again very lightly, then began to run in place. The laces fell apart of course, but my shoes stayed on the entire time.
      If a shoe god doesn't exist, then Chuck would fill the role perfectly. Thank you for such a great product Chuck

      @Brian- There was also a patent of particular concern in Australia that I don't think he has seen yet. Nothing like pouring heart and soul into something only to get that dreaded letter. Our patent is still pending here in the USA but once issued we will fully enforce any infringers.

    19. Charles Harris 7-time creator on March 23, 2014

      @Brian- What can I say. You can be an innovator OR an imitator. Imitators are better than duplicators but they are of the same breed.
      That being said I can tell you right now that the "innie" will not hold like the Lace Anchors, this is a promise. I have been down that road with 2 holes and the slots with endless testing. The initial install may be simpler but it comes with a very big cost. Performance. if you want to go through 2 holes, just use the 2 holes at the top of your shoes. Most cross trainers and running shoes have 2 holes at the top of the shoe that will basically accomplish what his product accomplishes.
      The Lace Anchor 2.0's will lock your laces in place, this is a guarantee.

      Hey Jim,
      Sent you a email as well!
      Thanks for the info. Yes some shoelaces with metal tips are too large but thats the nature of the beast! We have to accomodate the majority and metal tips are far less common. By make the holes just thousandths of an inch larger it hinders the security of some of the much thinner laces with are much more common. Many people will use the end of a steak knife and ream the holes out slightly for tips that are large or metal. Hope this helps! Hope all is well Jim!

    27. Jim L on February 12, 2014

      Chuck my man! I just got some Reebox Classic Lux sneaks but I had to "modify" your LA 2.0s! The Laces on these shoes had metal aglets and they are bigger than the holes! I had to use a 2/35" drill bit to shave off a bit to have the aglets go through. It was a tight fit, but once the aglets go through it's fine.

      I knew I would like not having bows on my shoes (they get caught on racks and equipment at work) but I was a little surprised how much more comfortable my shoes were with the lace anchors. There's no bow to tickle my ankles under my pant cuffs, and the top of the shoe fits better; they used to be a little too tight right underneath the bows. Great product & I wish you success selling these in brick & mortar stores.

      So I've been using them for over a week now and they work great on my sneakers which is too be expected but not so great on my dress shoes for work as they are ankle high boots but then I thought that would be the case. It's much harder to squeeze my foot into the dress shoes and they are not as tight as they should be but it's passable and they certainly look better without laces (until now I have been tucking them inside after tying them). I'll be cutting my laces on the other two shoes tonight, one has already been trimmed.

Had to make a couple adjustments to get the comfort and feel right due to the lace tension being different but could not be more pleased. Kept smiling as I saw people stoping and tying their shoes and I never did... even at the airport. AWESOME... AWESOME... product. Well worth the wait!!!!

      This is most likely the next best thing since sliced bread. It may not cure world hunger, but it will forever change the way we live our lives in sneakers.
      I have been using my lace anchors on my running shoes. Absolutely no problems. I used to get frustrated when the laces come off during the middle of the run. All those problems are now a thing of the past

      Got mine in California a couple weeks ago. I am impressed with the solid quality of the plastic being used. I'm glad you guys didn't cheap out and use inferior plastic -- something I'm sure knockoffs may try to do

      These are great. Received mine about a week ago (IL, USA) and put them in my work shoes and my "everyday" shoes. After a few days testing I finally snipped the laces in my work shoes! It felt great! My everyday shoes have an insole that lifts up so I just tucked them under that; that wasn't possible with my work shoes.
      Thanks Charles!

      hi Charles Harris, I have to comment you on your awesome customer service in regards to keeping us all in the loop. Hurdles are to be expected and will go away as you will become more aware of the best way of handle this business and shipping of the product. I have all confident that you will make good to all your backers and will wait patiently like you requested. So looking forward to taking them to Europe this fall and placing them into the Christmas stockings for our barely adult sons. Again I lift my hat for your outstanding customer service so far. These updates make all the difference and many companies cut take a slice of that pie. (FLorida, patiently waiting)

      I got my order this past Wednesday. Took about 40 min total to install on both feet, would have been about 25 min but I lost a lace anchor on my standard beige carpet most people have in the u.s.. Keep track of the anchors on installation and try to avoid carpet! Luckily, I found the missing one. They look and feel great and have not come loose on my adidas sambas. Love not tieing my laces. I did some rough estimation to see how much time these save me. Suppose you take 25 seconds to tie your shoes, subtract 10 seconds I find it takes to put on shoes with lace anchors. You end up with 15 seconds saved each time . Suppose you tie your shoes twice a day, that's 30 seconds a day, 210 seconds a week, 900 seconds a month, and about 11, 000 seconds a year or 180 minutes or 3 hours. Not a bad investment!

      I laced up my kicks and anchored them bad boys! Looks fantastic! I can't get past how simple these things are and work greatly! One question though, what's the difference between LA 1.0 and LA 2.0? :P
      I diamond laced my Marc Ecko Unlimited kicks I got years ago collecting dust because I didn't like the big bows, now I diamond laced those things thanks to your vid lol.
      Also used the under over method on my Adidas driving sneaks. Truthfully, I have been lacing those things up with over unders without actually knowing that the over under lacing method is actually a thing. I guess I was above the curve on that one XD.
      Chuck, are you on pinterest or instagram or is Lace Anchors? Great to post pics of kickstater's kicks of how they lace em up IMO.
      Happy lacing and Anchorin' everyone!

      Ruzu on May 20 Backer
      I finished installing all 4 lace anchors a few minutes ago as of writing this. I had to deviate from the instructions chuck gave in the video because it was just a little too loose for me. After I was finished, I tied my shoes again very lightly, then began to run in place. The laces fell apart of course, but my shoes stayed on the entire time.
      If a shoe god doesn't exist, then Chuck would fill the role perfectly. Thank you for such a great product Chuck

      Hey Mikey!
      Thats a bummer that you have still not received your Anchors. If you indeed filled out the reshipment form, your package was reshipped. I won't send another shipment to the same address because it's obviously not working. Please send me a message with an alternative address.
      Thanks for your support and we will get one more shipment out to you.

      hello charles, i've tried multiple times to contact you in the past few months but haven't received a response back. i've been patiently waiting to receive my lace anchors but still haven't gotten anything yet. i filled out the form twice when it was initially available to submit my information and once again about six months later. i'm really hoping to get this sorted out

    35. Charles Harris 7-time creator on December 10, 2013

      @M.S - First of all with 9,565 there will be missing packages. Second, how do I know that you did not receive them without you telling me? Third, I sent out re-ship forms in the update section which you did not fill out and if you did you did not fill it out correctly with your name and address. Fourth you are in singapore, lost international mail & singpost is a very common problem. You ask a question and I did not answer in 4 hours, keep in mind that we are not on the same time zones, your first question was at 9:00 pm my time and your second question asking if my project is a scam came at 3:00 AM?

      Just as shocked as you are that you did not get them yet so am I. I still get messages from people saying they have not received them yet. It is not my fault when people don't fill out the re-ship form or/and don't realize they haven't received them 6-7 months later!

      @Jeffrey- No issues, you will get them. Thanks for filling out the form.

      Everyone else that never filled out the survey, which believe it or not there is still quite a few and they keep trickling in will still get your package once you fill out the survey!

'Home' is called 'Home' at Dutch internet websites and the explanation on the bottom is hardly readable. If you want me to translate it to Dutch, just pm me and I can do it for you! Your product is really nice and you deserve to have a nice website!

      I knew I would like not having bows on my shoes (they get caught on racks and equipment at work) but I was a little surprised how much more comfortable my shoes were with the lace anchors. There's no bow to tickle my ankles under my pant cuffs, and the top of the shoe fits better; they used to be a little too tight right underneath the bows. Great product & I wish you success selling these in brick & mortar stores.

      So I've been using them for over a week now and they work great on my sneakers which is too be expected but not so great on my dress shoes for work as they are ankle high boots but then I thought that would be the case. It's much harder to squeeze my foot into the dress shoes and they are not as tight as they should be but it's passable and they certainly look better without laces (until now I have been tucking them inside after tying them). I'll be cutting my laces on the other two shoes tonight, one has already been trimmed.
      This was the first project I backed Charles so thanks for making it such a positive experience, hopefully all the other ones I've backed go as smoothly and good luck with all your future ones.

      I received my lace anchors last week, just installed them on a pair of sneakers... I can't believe this incredibly simple, yet sophisticated, design hadn't been invented already. My pregnant wife will more than appreciate not having to tie shoes anymore. Thank you, Charles!!

      Easily one of the coolest things I've ever bought. Thank you for creating such a great product!! Such a simple concept, and it works awesome :)

      Just got mine in the mail today. I'm using them now and they work as good as I thought they would. Thank you

      I got my anchors a couple of days ago here in San Diego CA. Put them in last night and they're really great. They make the whole shoe feel better (Vans) and I don't get that tight noose feel on my instep like I did with a regular knot. Well done!

      hi Charles Harris, I have to comment you on your awesome customer service in regards to keeping us all in the loop. Hurdles are to be expected and will go away as you will become more aware of the best way of handle this business and shipping of the product. I have all confident that you will make good to all your backers and will wait patiently like you requested. So looking forward to taking them to Europe this fall and placing them into the Christmas stockings for our barely adult sons. Again I lift my hat for your outstanding customer service so far. These updates make all the difference and many companies cut take a slice of that pie. (FLorida, patiently waiting)

      Mine came the other day(outside Boston) Seem to work great so far. Have not taken the bows off yet but they are holding firm. Thanks you may have saved me from a broken neck :)

      I got my order this past Wednesday. Took about 40 min total to install on both feet, would have been about 25 min but I lost a lace anchor on my standard beige carpet most people have in the u.s.. Keep track of the anchors on installation and try to avoid carpet! Luckily, I found the missing one. They look and feel great and have not come loose on my adidas sambas. Love not tieing my laces. I did some rough estimation to see how much time these save me. Suppose you take 25 seconds to tie your shoes, subtract 10 seconds I find it takes to put on shoes with lace anchors. You end up with 15 seconds saved each time . Suppose you tie your shoes twice a day, that's 30 seconds a day, 210 seconds a week, 900 seconds a month, and about 11, 000 seconds a year or 180 minutes or 3 hours. Not a bad investment!

      I laced up my kicks and anchored them bad boys! Looks fantastic! I can't get past how simple these things are and work greatly! One question though, what's the difference between LA 1.0 and LA 2.0? :P
      I diamond laced my Marc Ecko Unlimited kicks I got years ago collecting dust because I didn't like the big bows, now I diamond laced those things thanks to your vid lol.
      Also used the under over method on my Adidas driving sneaks. Truthfully, I have been lacing those things up with over unders without actually knowing that the over under lacing method is actually a thing. I guess I was above the curve on that one XD.
      Chuck, are you on pinterest or instagram or is Lace Anchors? Great to post pics of kickstater's kicks of how they lace em up IMO.
      Happy lacing and Anchorin' everyone!

      I got mine a few days ago-USA- these work perfectly! Very neat product!
      Anthony Derham on May 20 Backer
      Delivered today in the UK! The Anchors are brilliant, packaging is sweeeet too! Just done my Vans, now onto the Converse. Feels so much better than shoving the laces down the sides of my shoes like I always have done! Last pack are going on my work shoes tomorrow. Brilliant design and a great kickstarter project. Thanks very much!

      Lovin' the Lace Anchors - Trainers feel surprisingly secure from the get-go and the kids can't wait to get their hands on them. Great work and well worth the wait!!!

      OMG, they are awesome. Just installed them on my black Saucony Grid walkers I use for work and they are doing exactly what they're supposed to. Got a very loose bow tied for now, but I can see cutting them really soon. Incredible, simple design. Thanks, Chuck.

      I finished installing all 4 lace anchors a few minutes ago as of writing this. I had to deviate from the instructions chuck gave in the video because it was just a little too loose for me. After I was finished, I tied my shoes again very lightly, then began to run in place. The laces fell apart of course, but my shoes stayed on the entire time.
      If a shoe god doesn't exist, then Chuck would fill the role perfectly. Thank you for such a great product Chuck

      I just received mine and they're awesome! I've been walking around with them put on for several hours now and it's really the best thing ever not having to tie the laces!
      Also BTW, I'm from Poland

      I got mine a few days ago and I got to say... I LOVE THEM!!! They are beyond what I thought.
      I was a bit worried at first because I have big feet and the shoes I wear (Onitsuka Tiger's) are hard enough to get on and off. But with the anchors in I've had no issues! w00t!!!
      THANKS!!
