INVENTION OF THE CLOSURE SYSTEM IN SHOES

UTURN® is a patented device for fastening shoes – a great alternative to traditional shoelaces. This shoe lacing system can be applicable to footwear as well as clothes and bags. It is easy to set up, really convenient and extremely durable. This invention was created to make your life easier.
A lot of people, especially young children, seniors, athletes and blue-collar workers complain about their problems with shoelaces. Choosing laces in accordance with the size of shoes doesn’t prevent situations where shoelaces untie or become loose. That can be uncomfortable and frustrating not only during intense sport activities, but also casual use.

BETTER THAN ANY OTHER

UTURN® Lacing System was developed to ensure simplicity when lacing and unlacing shoes. In contrast to similar shoe lacing systems, – complicated and prone to malfunction – UTURN® is very intuitive and exceptionally easy to use. It spins smoothly and looks great.

THE LOCKING GEAR

UTURN® Lacing System is made out of a strong, durable nylon. Highly advanced helical construction provides 25-55% more durability than other shoe lacing systems. Moving the center of gravity to the bottom of the gear allows turning the knob with less effort. Thanks to a minimalistic look and slim design devoid of unnecessarily hanging elements, UTURN® eliminates a risk of snagging on objects and it is 30% lighter than other closure systems. Removing button-pulling from the process of loosening/unlocking allows a reduced cover height by about 10%. Choosing professional shoes where each gram lighter is valued, this difference is essential. Furthermore, the device keeps the wire firmly in place so its tension remains constant.

THE STEEL WIRE

A great resistance requires a  thicker stainless steel wire  (0.8-0.9 mm). There is no way to break it. The steel wire consists of 49 strands which are coated with strengthening plastic. This prevents friction against shoes and protects your feet. Additionally, this cover protects the wire from corrosion.

INNOVATIVE UTURN® WIRE SYSTEM

Our closure system provides easier and quicker 2-step rotation control than previous 3-step push&pull inventions. Combination of an ultra-light reel element, simplifying parts, carefully designed ratchet gear, durable rotating cover and steel wire ensures total operational reliability.

NOW YOU DON’T HAVE TO PULL, JUST TURN.

TURN RIGHT OR LEFT. THAT’S IT!

The simple but perfectly executed UTURN® system makes user manual dispensable. It is easier in use, more innovative and convenient than any previous shoe lacing system. It eliminates nuisances of push&pull gear and maximizes the comfort of tool operating by turning a dial to the right or left, without pushing or pulling.

2-STEP SHOE LACING SYSTEM

UTURN® Wire System is 2-step closure technology in which the knob pulling process, a defining characteristic for less advanced 3-step shoe lacing systems, was removed. Its guaranteed to save your time and a provide great convenience. In our invention, the only thing which you have to do is rotate the knob to the right – if you want to tighten and lock it, and to the left about 30 degrees – if you want to loosen and unlock it. That’s it!

Turning the dial counterclockwise loosens stainless steel wire and allows it to adjust to your foot’s size, including width and height of your feet. Day after day, it guarantees a full comfort of wearing shoes.

Using UTURN® closure system is super easy and it truly works. We guarantee it. It eliminates pressure areas in your shoes and provides optimum fit and comfort. Moreover, it saves your time when you are in a hurry. UTURN® provides some great advantages which are appreciated by a growing number of customers.
