*I was provided with several pairs of Hickies for review and this post contains affiliate links. I will use money made toward my travel fund.* 🙂
Most of the time if I’m not wearing a slip-on shoe then I’m wearing my Nike’s. And not until I received Hickies did I realize how much I treat my Nike’s like slip-ons! But now I can switch out my laces for a pair of hot pink Hickies and not even worry about having to tie and untie my laces. No I don’t run, cycle or do anything remotely athletic but who wants to waste precious time worrying about shoelaces. Ain’t nobody got time for that!
When I wear laces with these shoes I typically leave this one of the eyelets empty. With the Hickies I only needed to use 4 for each shoe. After wearing them for a little while I ended up trying one of the other ways to lace them and the fit was much better. Takes a little bit of trial and error in the beginning before you figure out which is the best lacing system for you. And no matter whether you have a wide or narrow foot, you can lace them up to suit your personal needs. Each pair of laces come with a handy guide to show you different ways to make them tighter or looser. Also if you have long fingernails you’re gonna end up cussing trying to pull the Hickies through. Luckily (or not luckily) I had to cut one of my thumb nails down pretty low so it made it a lot easier to pull them through the eyelet.
I was talking with one of my friends and her son has issues with his fine motor skills and she stated that Hickies have been a lifesaver. Kids reach a certain age and wearing velcro just isn’t “cool” anymore. I love that the HICKIES Lacing System fits with almost every shoe out there, as long as they have eyelets. Sneakers, boots, work shoes, and dress shoes all look great with these no-tie laces. Plus since they’re so easy to lace my 9-year-old can lace and switch them up on her own without any help from me. Which is awesome because she’s always trying to be as independent as possible.
With these laces you can switch out the colors and have them match with your outfit. And if you really want to go all out you can get the Hickies with Swarovski® Crystals.
The best part of the is that no more worrying about laces coming undone or waiting fifty eleven hours for my child to finish tying her shoes…LOL! Have you tried Hickies before? If not be sure to check out their site for all of the different colors!
