I've never seen these before, but they might be good for "busy moms" or those with dexterity issues.

 

Opinions?

Interesting but where do the ends of the shoelaces go?

At $20 a set they seem like a novelty rather than a necessity 

Stop being afraid of what could go wrong and start being positive what could go right.

As a registered nurse who worked in a nursing home, some 90 year old women and men with severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoarthritis, and debilitating diseases, are doing good to even get the shoes on by themselves. Please be more thoughtful and I hope you enjoy LOL.

@bamasec

Some years ago I tore my dominant wrist and ended up with two casts and surgery.  I definitely could have used these then!

 

I was also thinking about kids with autism or fine motor difficulties, who are too old for Velcro but would like to wear regular sneakers in their sizes.

Oh, for the love of god, I just KNEW someone would have a comeback.  Of course I realize that there are people out there who would benefit by this product.  It was a joke.  And, yes, I did enjoy my LOL.
