I can't tell you how much I DESPISE tying my own shoes. Childish I know. More than that, I hate un-tying all the knots that constantly plague my kids shoes.
So, when I first heard about HICKIES no-tie lacing system, I was pretty excited! I have to admit, though, that I was also a little cautious. The pictures of the system looked stylish and sleek, but could silicone non-laces be tight enough for my active lifestyle? Would they be too loose for my kids feet? Our family is on the go all the time, doing workouts, taking walks, playing at the park. I couldn't have anyone running out of their shoes.
So when I first received them, I was a little dubious.
As it turns out, I had nothing to worry about. Each package of HICKIES came with a handy little paper that showed how to make the fit tighter or looser depending on preference and foot size. They also come in adult AND children's lengths, making my worry that my kids would be tripping out if their shoes at the park, moot.
Compared to the time consuming and frustrating experience of lacing up shoes, ending up with one side way to long, or missing a loop halfway through, installing HICKIES is a snap. It honestly took me more time to get the laces out than to put the HICKIES in!
Promptly when the shoes were ready to go, my daughter and I pulled on our shoes for a spin around the block. I was worried we would have to struggle into our shoes but they slipped on easily and the HICKIES quickly shrunk back down to create a snug fit around our feet. PERFECT!
We ran around the block with no shoes falling off, no laces coming untied, just complete comfort.
I can't wait to share these with the family in their stockings this Christmas! And right now HICKIES Is having a holiday sale AND offers $0.99 shipping!
