Bunny Ears Tie

Do you remember sitting to watch and learn how to tie your shoes for the first time? Do you remember how you learned or how long it took? It took Spongebob an entire episode

Even with songs, it took me days to learn methods like the “Bunny Ears” tie. However, no matter what method I used my laces always became untied.

 

Hickies Shoelaces

Hickies Shoelaces

Shoe tying has gotten easier and this problem can now be resolved with Hickies shoelaces, a elastic lacing system incorporating a tieless and aesthetic look. Though a little aesthetically awkward, the laces are reminiscent of all the different shoelaces you can see on the streets giving them a unique design. (To Learn More)

With Hickies, maybe Spongebob wouldn’t have needed to spend an episode on learning to tie his shoes and I would’ve spent less of my childhood with untied shoelaces.
