Embrace Change With Shorter And More Practical Laces

When thinking about your lace-up sneakers, the simple initiative of making the shift to short shoelaces is all that is needed to have a solution that will give you endless satisfaction.

We live in a digital generation where the expectation is that everything has been made more convenient and more straightforward, thanks to technology. Still, there are areas where we have remained limited to sticking with what the past generations did and for no other reason that we have not found better alternatives. One such area comes when we are lacing our sneakers as the general norm is to stick to the conventional laces which are tied in a knot to securely hold our feet. While there is nothing wrong with the activity as it delivers on functionality, it comes with several limitations which we have been forced to adapt to or in the worst cases buy more slip-on sneakers to avoid the hustle. For those with poor shoelace tying abilities, it is a never-ending struggle which they would do anything to avoid without having to sacrifice on owning their favorite pair of sneakers.

At times, it does not matter which lacing style you prefer when you still use the traditional shoelaces as you never get to avoid what many people hate, which is having to continually worry about the loose ends. So, whether you go for the all popular straight bar lacing or decide to try out other exciting styles such as criss-cross lacing or lattice method, it is never a lasting solution to the problem at hand. This is because the design of the laces you use does not allow for functionality without the ends being fastened and you can never avoid that. The search for a solution that will make those sneakers easily become slip-ons is, therefore, in looking beyond the obvious by relying on creative innovations.

The good news is that creative minds have been working behind the scenes to resolve your problems and now you can easily have short shoelaces which have everything you need to avoid the constant struggle of lacing up. The modern laces have used a simple concept, and that is instead of giving you a long string to go through all the eyelets in a sneaker, the solution was to shorten them. In having shorter laces which only go through a pair of eyelets and become fastened in place with their aglets, there is never a worry about ever having to deal with loose ends. This is primarily because once the laces are installed in place they never come off unless you decide to physically remove them.

What this means is, whether you are the kind who hates having to spend some time each morning, lacing up or a parent that wants to reduce the struggle when preparing the young ones for school, there is a solution to be trusted. The strength of the laces is not only in their shortness, but in how they have been made to be stretchy. It is a purposeful design which makes it easy to put on your sneakers and remove them without having to loosen the lace each time. Everyone who knows the fun in having slip-ons will tell you this is a joy which cannot be explained, as it gives you the desired flexibility each time you want to go out. All this comes without having to buy another pair of laceless sneakers which are equally becoming popular despite being limited to how you can customize them, which is one of the core strength of lacing-up sneakers.

In using short shoelaces, there is an open door to be creative since it becomes extremely simple to try out the most exciting lacing techniques. This arises from the fact that you only have to choose a pair of eyelets to use for installing the laces which gives your sneakers an exciting touch of style. You can take as many colored laces as you want, and when lacing up, play about with the colors for a final look that reflects your personality. Color mixing is the current in-thing, and with modular non-tie laces, there is never a reason why your shoes must not have that classic touch. The ease in using different lacing styles is not just for enhanced beauty, but for functionality where you can always make adjustments for a tighter fit.
