Why tie shoelaces when you don’t have to? You won’t have to worry about your shoelaces getting untied ever again with Zubits. It’s a magnetic shoe closure that works with your existing laces to make lacing up infinitely faster– which makes sense, since no actual tying is involved. All you have to do is thread the laces into Zubits, cut off the excess lace (how long or how short you’d like your laces to be depends on you), and snap it closed. It’s that simple.
When you’re ready to slip your shoes off, just push your foot forward to break the connection. The downside is that they might not hold up to rigorous activity or sports (note the keyword there: might), but you could always give it a go to test its limits yourself.
Zubits is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a minimum pledge of $20 will get you your very own pair.
