Shoelace Accessories Tested by Ian
These are shoelace accessories from various merchants that either currently sponsor or previously sponsored Ian's Shoelace Site or at least sent some samples for me to try out.
Lace Anchors Lace Anchors inside a shoe Lace Anchors:
For those who prefer a shoe minus the bows and loose ends, Lace Anchors invisibly secure the ends of the shoelaces inside the shoe, transforming it into a neat slip-on.
Safe Lace Safe Lace securing the knot on a running shoe Safe Lace:
Safe Lace is a flexible silicone device that threads onto the shoelaces, then locks over the bow to prevent it coming undone. Soft enough to be comfortable, yet strong enough to hold.
Snap-n-Step closure Snap-n-Step wrapped around a shoelace bow Snap-n-Step:
An alternative solution to prevent shoelaces from coming undone, Snap-n-Step is a simple snap-stud closure with Velcro on the inside that wraps around a shoelace bow, holding it more secure.
Flibbers clip Flibbers laced in with Straight Bar Lacing Flibbers:
For years, people have been clipping shoe charms like Jibbitz into their Crocs rubber clogs. "Flibbers" are clear plastic clips that allow these charms to be attached to shoelaces.
Tie Buddies Tie Buddies laced into a girl's shoe Tie Buddies:
For kids learning to tie shoelaces, this simple product helps form permanent "loops" in the laces, with the cute characters then incorporated into a story to help the kids remember the steps involved.
