I purchased these because I have autoimmune arthritis (immune system attacks my joints) & it hurts to bend my knees & fingers. These are great!! I’m able to slip on/officially my work shoes and sneakers easily. These bands are strong & haven’t broken, even when I tried pulling them out because I threaded them into the wrong hole. You need needle nosed pliers to remove them.
My son wear these laces in all their boots and sneakers. Living in the mountains their boots, etc. are covered in dirt and mud. They just slip off their shoes and leave the mud behind. Their boots are off and on all day long. My experience has been great. I never liked wearing my sneakers because of tying them; it's so easy just to slip in and out of them.
I have trouble tying shoes with arthritis in my hands/fingers so these laces really help with this problem. Just slip on my feet and tighten the lock lace and go.
Genius design! Sure, my 6 year-old son can tie his own shoes. They just come undone a lot. His dad likes to double knot his laces, but they become a pain in the butt to undo. I came across these and decided to give them a try. They are absolutely amazing in that they essentially convert all lace-up shoes into slip-ons! My son was stoked to slip on his favorite shoes! They are also easy to keep clean. No more gross looking white laces.
I am absolutely impressed with these. I had purchased them for my son with ASD. They were very easy to "lace" and even easier to use. My son is extremely proud of himself for being able to independently put his shoes on, something he couldn't do alone before. Its a big deal for him and I am thrilled that this is possible for him with no frustration.I am confident these will last us plenty of uses. To my surprise, the quality was much better than expected for silicone. THANK YOU!
