No Tie Shoelaces

Transitioning from a summer schedule to school is hard enough but, in my family, the transition from flip flops and sandals to athletic shoes is also a battle.

This week, however, we discovered No Tie Shoelaces.  Even though my children can tie laces, the tie isn’t exactly tight or secure and it still requires a few minutes.  No more.  The kids love having tie-up shoes that, frankly, they don’t have to tie. It’s truly “having your cake and eating it too.”    The curly shoelaces come in a wide variety of colors and add a nice bit of color to plain shoes (or in my case — more color to already colorful shoes).

The curl in the laces simply creates enough friction to keep a shoe securely on your foot.   For those of us with aging parents or grandparents, this would also be a wonderful solution for aging hands.

No Tie Shoelaces can be found at Academy Sports, Shoe Carnival and most shoe retailers for about $2.  They are also available for purchase online.
