Life is too short to spend ty­ing and un­ty­ing shoelaces — es­pe­cially if air­port se­cu­rity is in your travel plans. If you dis­agree, then go ahead and don’t grab a batch of time-sav­ing, once-and-done Laceez No Tie Shoelaces. These long, stretchy Ly­cra-and­ny­lon-blend shoe laces can be swapped out with tra­di­tional laces on any pair of laced shoes, turn­ing the shoes into quick and easy pull-ons. While a boon for trav­el­ers con­stantly hav­ing to re­move shoes for air­port X-ray in­spec­tion and for par­ents try­ing to get lit­tle kids all tied up in a hurry, No Tie shoelaces are also a truly help­ful aid to in­di­vid­u­als with dex­ter­ity chal­lenges. (Of course, you still need to be able to bend down and pull your shoes over your feet, but we’re talk­ing sim­ple so­lu­tions, not magic wands.) Some­one still has to do the ini­tial lace-up, but once through the top eye­lets, the laces’ rigid T-bar end pieces lock in place against the holes (ei­ther on the ex­ter­nal or in­ter­nal side), with no need to tie a bow (un­less you re­ally want to).

Avail­able in men’s, women’s and chil­dren’s sizes, each in a choice of lengths, Laceez come in white or black for adults. Kids’ styles come in a mul­ti­tude of col­ors, from neu­tral to neon shades of pink, blue, red and yel­low. (How come kids have all the fun?) Laceez can be ma­chine-washed (cold wa­ter, gen­tle de­ter­gent) and lightly tum­ble dried. As a side bonus, Laceez make handy sub­sti­tutes for rub­ber bands and are great for ty­ing things to­gether. Kids can busy their minds com­ing up with other cre­ative uses — just hope they don’t hit on “hey, look, a sling­shot!”
