Just grabbed a pair of these the other night, I don’t think I’ll ever tie my shoes again. Pretty simple setup, just lace your shoes with them, they’ve got collapsible knots which stretch when pulled then bunch up when released… Lace the shoes once, and that’s it – no tying required. Well, I guess you can tie them, I cut mine (ordering more for my other shoes shortly). All you do is set the tension by the number of knots through the eyelets, then slide the shoe on. If you’re a lazy SOB that slides your shoes on and off without untying them already, now there’s a way to do it WITHOUT wearing out the sneaker too.
