Not Wasting Time on Tying Shoes This Year

If the first three months are going to be any idea of what the rest of the year holds, then we are going to be on the go a lot. With 4 kids, that means a lot of waiting on shoes to get tied. Well, it would. If we didn't have Hickies to help! 
*Disclaimer: I was sent these products through my association with US Family Guide in exchange for my honest review. I was not otherwise paid or endorsed. All opinion are my own.*

Hickies take the hassle out of shoe tying. Hard enough keeping track of their shoes, let alone in making sure each one is tied. My kids are 10, 8, 6 and 2. The oldest two really tried my patience while teaching them how to tie their shoes. More times than I care to recall, I had to stop and get them to tie their shoes or I had to tie them. When you are in a hurry, this makes things difficult. Or how about those cool super hero shoelaces that refuse to stay tied?? Oh yeah.... 
So how do Hickies help Parents? 

You slide these rubber straps in place and fasten. Then your kids only need to slide their shoes on. Voila! You are ready to go. They save you time and energy.  I chose the Red and the Black and Silver Metallic ones. Each pack has enough laces for a pair shoes. Depending on you lace yours up, you may even have some left over. 

Check out these awesome features:
Works in any shoe with eyelets.

One size fits all.

Elastic material keeps shoes secure yet comfortable.

Never tie again! Play is uninterrupted.

Fun look, without the messy knots and bows.

Adjustable tightness.

Quick and easy - simply slip on and off. Especially if you want to switch out colors to match your outfit!
Good for adults too! 

Do you run a lot? Do your shoes come untied sometimes? This will keep that from slowing you down! They include a guide that shows you how to use them in various styles so that you can wear them tight or wear them loose.

  1. Sounds easy and this is great after all the children have learned how to tie their shoes. There was eight of us. Sure mom would have loved this idea

    1. There were 10 of us growing up and I'm sure my Mom would have been thrilled!

  2. I wish i had these idea when my kids were first learning how to tie their shoes. Great tip you shared.

  3. Huh! Those are pretty neat! Wish they'd been around when my son was growing up. We just had that old-fashioned velcro.

  4. Cute idea! Love that you can use different colors too to make it fun for the kids.

  5. These are great. Especially for little ones when bus coming. They are great for elderly as well.

  6. I am surprised that there are some that having trouble with shoe laces. This is helpful tips :) Good for those who can't bend-over to ties their shoes.

  7. These look so cool. My friends daughter is turning 8 this year and I am going to share this to her. I’m sure it will save her time.

  8. They are truly a time saver and very cute too. I love the colorful ones.

  9. Growing up as a kid, I had to thank my dad for teaching us how to tie our shoes in different kinds of ways. It was really awesome back then to show off our neatly tied shoelaces. My dad was the proudest. LOL.

    1. Same here! I don't know why it is so hard for some kids to learn this. We even had fake shoes for them to learn with.
