- Use the circumference table to find your ring size.
- If you know your UK size, please remember that traditional rings are sized to fit over your knuckle.
- Most of the times your knuckles will be bigger than the base of your finger, so measure your finger or choose a smaller size than your UK size one.
What are E3 rings made of?

Is the E3 Silicone ring made to protect my existing wedding ring?
- No, the ring was designed to replace your wedding ring while maintaining an active lifestyle.

What comes in a pack of E3 Elastic Laces?
- Each package contains 2x 100cm elastic shoelaces, 2 lock devices, and 1 cord clip. The lock device is the piece that has “E3” printed on it
How many packs of E3 Elastic do I need for one pair of shoes?
1 pack of E3 Elastic Laces is suitable for lacing up 1 pair of shoes.
Once I’ve installed E3 Elastic Laces in my shoes, how do they work?
Great question. E3 Elastic Laces are designed to turn any shoe into a slip-on. Because the laces are elastic, you can simply remove your foot from the shoe without moving the lock, and the elasticity of the shoelaces will prevent any damage to the heel of your shoe. You can also press down on the top of the lock device and pull it towards the toe of your shoe to loosen the device.
Will E3 Elastic Laces fit through the eyelets in my shoes?
Most likely, yes. If you find that the laces will not fit through your shoe eyelets, just contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we will do our best to resolve the issue.
How long/thick are the elastic laces?
The E3 Elastic Laces elastic shoelaces are 100cm in length, 0.25cm in diameter, and can stretch up to 160cm. They are slim enough to fit through the eyelets of nearly any shoe, and they are long enough to lace up nearly any shoe (with the exception of some tall work boots and high-top sneakers).
Will E3 Elastic Laces work in my boots or high-top sneakers?
Currently our 100cm laces will not fit, but we are in the process are procuring a 180cm version. Please send us an email with your details and we will keep you posted if we have solution for you. All of our laces are heavy-duty and water-resistant.
Will E3 Elastic Laces work in kids’ shoes?
- Yes! Because of our trim-to-fit design, E3 Elastic Laces are one-size-fits-all for both children and adults. For help with installation, please see our instructional guide
- Busy moms love E3 Elastic Laces because they don’t have to pause their daily routine to tie rogue shoelaces, the laces stay clean and off the ground, and their kids don’t complain about wearing lame Velcro shoes!
Can I reuse E3 Elastic Laces in another pair of shoes?
- Short answer: Not really.
- Our one-size-fits-all, trim-to-fit design makes it hard to remove and reinstall on another pair of shoes for a couple reasons: after trimming, the laces no longer have the plastic aglets to thread through your shoe’s eyelets, and the laces may no longer be long enough to fit another shoe. This was one compromise that we had to make in designing our lacing system, and we hope you’ll understand.
The laces won’t fit through the eyelets of my shoes. What can I do?
- You can try cutting off the plastic aglets at the end of the laces, which may allow the laces to squeeze through the eyelets. If you try this, you may have to trim the ends of the laces a couple of times to remove the fray
- If this doesn’t work, don’t worry about it. Just contact us and we’ll do our best to provide a suitable solution.
How do I clean my E3 Elastic Laces?
E3 Elastic Laces are machine washable, so you can wash them just like you would normally wash your shoes. For particularly dirty laces, we recommend using liquid laundry detergent and a small scrub brush. To dry, simply place your shoes somewhere safe to air-dry.
I am an amputee/had a stroke. Can I use E3 Elastic Laces with one hand?
- Yes, E3 Elastic Laces accommodate users who can only use one hand. After initial installation*, you can treat your shoes like slip-ons, and the lock device will keep your laces at the perfect tension.
- *You may need help with initial installation.
Can E3 Elastic Laces be readjusted after initial installation?
- Yes, the laces can always be made tighter. For this reason, we recommend initially installing the laces slightly looser than you might think, and then using the lock device to pull the laces to a snugger fit when desired. We always recommend cutting the laces 4 to 5 cm below the lock device to give yourself room to loosen them.
Do E3 Elastic Laces come in a solid color (without the specks)?
Currently, we don’t offer any perfectly solid colors. All colors have contrasting specks, or “tracers,” as we like to call them.
