Unique patented toggle system

Greeper Laces: The Beginning

Optometrist Peter Greedy created Greeper Laces. In the ‘90s, he wanted a solution for his kids’ constantly untied shoes.

Popularity and Use

Launched in 2008, many athletes and outdoor fans love these laces. They’re also helpful for people with hand impairment or cognitive issues.

Recognitions and Achievements

World-famous athletes use Greepers. They’ve been spotlighted at the Ironman Championships over six times.

Behind the Business

Peter Greedy runs this growing company from his UK home in Gloucestershire. In the world of footwear, the humble shoelace has seen little innovation over the centuries. Enter Greeper laces, a groundbreaking solution that’s changing the way we think about tying our shoes. Our Shop Manager Duncan Edwards has been selling and using Greeper Laces since 2011.

The Problems with Traditional Laces - they come undone!

Traditional laces have been a staple of footwear for centuries, but they come with their fair share of problems:

  • The Untimely Untie: Who hasn’t experienced the annoyance of laces coming undone during a run or an important event?
  • Dexterity Dilemmas: For individuals with motor challenges, tying laces can be a daily struggle.
  • Bending Blues: For those with back issues or conditions like arthritis, bending down to tie shoes can be more than just an inconvenience.

The Greeper Revolution

The Greeper No- Tie Toggle Solution

Greeper laces introduce a unique toggle that abides by a simple principle: “Once Applied, Always Tied”. Say goodbye to the constant bending and retying. The looped laces look very similar to a tied bow lace - no stigma!
