Shoelaces Not Needed

Everyone knows how to tie shoelaces but most don’t know how to properly adjust them. That uncomfortable shoe could just be a matter of tension. Technically you should readjust every 4-5th wear. Why even bother if there’s something better? The No Shoelace Shoe uses a single strap that wraps around the entire width of your foot’s arch. By simply tightening or loosening a velcro strap, you achieve the perfect fit. Designed for runners but this simple design could easily translate into any footwear.

    This doesn’t even look like it will work, that animation is very non-convincing. “No shoelace but better” is not a coherent statement either, especially if they are calling the future of shoes.

    Velco is noisy when pulled apart. Also it become less effective over time.

  • Noah says:

    From what I can tell, that red band is an elastic. Imagine you are putting on a heavy-duty sock, not a shoe.

  • colby says:

    Sounds like a great idea; without the velcro. If they do get this design to work then it could be a revolution in footware and eventually sports
