Tying Shoelaces a thing of the past

13 Dec 2014If you are like me you probably curse shoelaces every time you have to do them up.
As a small child I was taught how to do my shoelaces up by leaning against the corner of the wall so my left arm stays still and I don't spasm and lose it all.

While I was looking out for a blog to write, I came across an article that has this genius way of doing up shoelaces – finally!

Zubits magnetic shoe closures are here. Once you lace them into your shoe the magnets connect and your shoe is done up – ta da!
Costing around $20 a pair and being able to be swapped out from one pair of old shoes, to a new pair, I think is money well spent.

I'd like 5 pairs please!
