No need to tie your shoes again with Hickies

I am sure I am not the only one who HATES tying and untying shoe laces.

I have been aware of Hickies for a couple of years, mainly through their very clever social media campaigns.

So What are Hickies?

No they are not the thing that you might have had on your neck!

They are a cool lacing system for shoes #lifewithoutlaces.

Hickies Life Without Laces Review

What I especially love is pretty much one size fits all. They do have a kids section suitable for kids aged 4-8, but I used the adult black laces in my 8 year old’s trainers and they fit perfectly.

They have about 30 different colours, including multi colour which I really love.

Do Hickies fit in all shoes?

They claim that if you have laces in your shoes they will fit. I have to say this is not entirely true.

I was going to put them in my sons rugby boots which do have laces, but I couldn’t get them to fit in the holes. However, every other type of shoe I tried they did work in.

There are a number of ways you can put the Hickies into your shoes. You can either have them regular, tight or loose, and they look great all ways.

Hickies Life Without Laces Instructions

As I used the adult laces in my sons trainers, I laced them the tight way. Not only are they great for transforming trainers into lace free (and hassle free) in my opinion and more importantly Freddie’s they look better too!

I tried to add the colourful multicoloured ones in, but he was having none of it! But the look absolutely amazing on.

Although these are perfect for kids, it was Stuart who has been desperate to try these! As you can see below these are completely different ways to add your laces.

They still fit perfectly, and yet again the Hickies look so much better than standard laces.

    I would share them with my son. He never unties his laces and just crams his feet in his shoes. These are quick and easy and look good.
