Back to school means back to the daily grind. Hustle and bustle, packing lunches, carpool lanes, and more means there just isn’t much time left to spare. I remember back when I was in school, I’d hit that snooze button as many times as humanly possible and then jump out of bed running so I wouldn’t miss the bus. Since we lived out in the country, it was an hour bus ride each way which meant REALLY early rising. Thankfully, once my older sister got her license, my parents let us drive to school which gave me an extra hour of sleep each morning. If a tight schedule is what your family follows, you know every second counts! That even includes taking time to tie shoes. Thankfully, I’ve found a better way with HICKIES No Tie Shoe Laces.
Not Just For Kids!
Let me start off by saying that HICKIES No Tie Shoe Laces are NOT just for kids! They offer an adult size as well as a children size, both in a variety of colors. Now nobody in the family will ever have to tie their shoes again. And you get to look great too!
Why Is The HICKIES Lacing System So Special?
Shoelaces have evolved! This no tying, custom-fit lacing system gives the freedom to slip shoes on and off while providing the desired fit for each wearer. There are several different ways to lace up these flexible bands which provide tighter and looser fits. We did a variety of criss-cross and the typical vertical pattern. There really is no wrong way, just mix and match for what works for you or check out their How It Works Page for ideas. Our daughter even decided to install hers with the logo up as opposed to down.
No More Broken Laces
I love that the HICKIES Lacing System fits with almost every shoe out there, as long as they have eyelets. Sneakers, boots, work shoes, and dress shoes all look great with these no-tie laces. Plus, they are easy enough to thread and fasten that our 10 and 12 year old could do it themselves.
As I said, we did a variety of lacing systems. When the kids first tried to put their shoes on, they were surprised at how snug they were. (The little two did need help getting their shoes on the first time but the almost 7 year old has already figured it out.) However, they all love how secure their shoes feel with the HICKIES lacing system. They can easily run, jump, and play without worrying about loose laces or sloppy shoes.
We LOVE them! Even my husband, who doesn’t typically notice small details, asked about the kids’ shoes because they all looked so cool. Plus, teachers are also sure to enjoy not having to help tie shoes while the kids will like not tripping on laces. It’s a complete win for everyone!
