A common problem when walking hand in hand is that those hands seldom assist either person’s gait by swinging in rhythm opposite the nearest leg. Since even a loving pair’s legs are often out of step, the held hands hang helplessly still or jerk awkwardly to one or the other’s disadvantage.

The love loop, a short elastic cord between two Velcro ankle straps, changes all that. Joining a couple’s nearest ankles, the cord helps keep them in stride, one’s left leg and the other’s right swinging forward and backward together. The result: a tenderer but also more efficient stroll thanks to joined hands and feet that smoothly pendulate.

       I'm not sure this'd work.. people naturally walk in step with each other rather than out of step a the love loop encourages.

       Hah. Yes, this is needed, especially in conversation.
