Zubits Fastener Lets You Say Goodbye To Tying Your Shoelaces Forever


You know you live in the first world when it actually seems like a good idea to buy a product whose only purpose is to make it possible for you never to tie your shoelaces again. This first world solution is called Zubits, and is a set of magnets with holes through which you’re meant to thread your laces. Once this is done, getting in and out of your shoes is as simple a matter as unsnapping the fastener, sliding your foot in, and snapping them back together. Getting out involves holding your heel down with your other foot and pulling out; the pressure should be enough to separate the magnets again and free you. It’s a cool idea, although here’s hoping they don’t come loose while just walking or running. They cost between $20 and $22, depending on size.
