Are your shoelaces dragging on the ground and getting dirty? Are you tired of tying and untying your shoelaces again and again? Then No-Tie Shoelaces are just what you need!

No more bows, knots or mess, the ends of your laces will remain secure in the shoe, keeping your shoelaces looking nice and clean for much longer.

Known by many different names such as elastic laces, stretch shoe laces and tieless laces. No-tie shoelaces can quickly turn your shoes into stylish slip-ons and help to relieve stress and provide a feeling of independence for kids, adults, and seniors. 

During installation, you set the shoelaces to your desired tension so you can simply slip your shoes on and off with ease.

This is possible because the ends of the elastic laces are secured with shoelace clips or anchors.
