Hottest Trend in The Goalie Industry

Right now, every company out there is offering toe tie alternatives to provide more mobility in RVH, more durability and value to the table than the rest. In the last 2 years I’ve tried almost every single one from the Brian’s Smart Strap toe ties, to the HAL straps, to the Bauer CRS. However, everyone fails in one major category. That is until Pro laces came along.

I’ve been using pro laces for 6 months now and I can honestly say that these things are without a doubt the best quality product and best valued toe tie on the market. What’s these so special? Allow me to explain


Performance wise I feel like there are very few differences between most toe ties. They are more flexible than traditional skate laces will creates a much smoother RVH transition, they relieve stress on ankles and knee and hip joints. They also keep the pad much “taller” to the skate when in your stance since the toe ties are essentially a bungie cord that stays tight when still and expands/stretches a lot when called upon


Custom option wise. Both monster and Pro laces offer different custom options like number, name, team logos but I feel the customer service at Pro laces goes far above the competitions. Where the competitors can vanish off the face of the earth, pro laces have always had me taken care of the same business day. Pro laces also offer multiple cord/bungie options from skate lace to black cord to “armour” which is the black cord that has a skate lace cover over top. I use the skate lace covered version.

Price and Value

Overall, the price is the biggest difference between all the active competitors but don’t be fooled. Pro laces may be the most expensively price product on the market but with that price comes value. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I have no problem paying a premium price for a product that brings premium value. I’ve had my current set of Pro laces since January and nothing has ripped yet, when I was using HAL’s I’d go through a new set every 3 weeks because they kept breaking.

Monster HAL = $25 USD (About $31 CND)

Bauer CRS = $20

Pro Laces = $40-45 CND


I love pro laces, I love what they’re all about. I love that they’re Canadian and unless something changes in the market I’ll be using Pro laces for a while. If you got a few bucks kicking around or if you’re having problems with your knees/ankles/hips then this is a product YOU HAVE TO GET today!!!! It’s the most expensive toe tie on the market because its the best, you don’t get more value, performanceand durability from anything else out there.
