Why tie, when you can convert any shoe into a slip-on? Great for sensitive feet or those recovering from foot injury. These No tie laces provide a supremely comfortable, plush feel for the foot. Ordinary laces provide no give or stretch, and leave you forever tying, re-tying, and untying knots and double knots. Put Lian LifeStyle laces on your shoes, dial-in the fit, and away you go. Parents - reclaim your freedom from the tyranny of shoelace-tying instruction and service! Lian LifeStyle laces are a great alternative for youth who have difficulty tying their own shoes, and are perfect for young children whose small hands have not yet mastered shoe tying yet.
