Hello my name is Dennis Walsh and I am the creator of Running Weights.  The story of running weights began in 1983 when I recognized the importance of training with ankle weights.

After a severe leg injury in 1993, I searched for a way to rehabilitate my knee after suffering from imbalance.  In 2001 the inspiration came from putting tire balancing weights in my shoe, which stimulated new muscle growth.


Simple but Clever

Testing, redesigning and retesting created the optimum design of running weights.

The slots lock the weight on the laces, center the weight, increase tension with their curvature, and accept laces from multiple angles.

The tested and revised width of the slots allows the same performance using flat, cord, or cable laces.
