Thanks to US Family Guide I was given the opportunity to try out 2 pairs of HICKIES! HICKIES are no tie elastic shoelaces that turn any shoe into a slip-on.
HICKIES no tie elastic shoelaces are available for Adults and Kids. I received 2 Adult packs. 1 Adult pack includes 14 ties. The ties are stretchy and flexible. The round head at one end of the tie is hard plastic. I stretched and twisted one of the ties to see how strong they are. Even when I used my nails the tie held strong.
HICKIES are easy to put on. There are instructions included in the packaging that show you 3 different techniques for putting them on. Regular, Tight and Loose. You can also create your own technique. I tried the regular technique first but my shoes were too loose so I went with the tight technique. I can slip my shoes off and on easily without my socks coming off or having to wiggle my foot into my shoe.
I like to wear my walking shoes loose so that I can slip them on and off. That is difficult with laces but some HICKIES make it possible. These are great for walking shoes, boots, running shoes and pretty much anything that has regular laces.
