I think these are a really cool solution to the problem that so many parents face!
My boys have just been bought new shoes for the colder weather, but when buying the shoes I had to consider pre-school and nursery, much like other Mums and those whose kids are at school too. I remember Reuben having the most adorable boots last season, however they were lace up and I was asked to provide shoes that he could get on and off himself at school, as in, no laces thank you very much. Toby always had his socks on when I went to collect him, shoes were left off because they were lace up!
This year, I’m not as keen on their shoes, I love lace up winter boots, there is something that is so much more nostalgic about them than the velcro straps, don’t you think?
These elastic bands look like laces with the ease and practicality of velcro! The lace up shoes go from being a hindrance to being slip ons, just like that. What’s even more fun is that the bands come in a variety of colours, which means your kids can have multicoloured laces on their favourite shoes, or if we are being sensible black is a welcome option for school.
There you go Mums, you never have to compromise on style and more importantly you never have to utter the words ‘Tie your shoe laces or you’ll fall!!’ again. You’re welcome.
