They are a fab idea, and so ideal for children, elderly people or people with learning disability that have problems with tying shoelaces. They are simple to add to the shoe, you take one from the packets and slide it through the eyelet of the shoe. Then you pop the hole over round moulded plastic, this fastens the shoep to the shoe. Then you put the other end of the Shoep through the corresponding eyelet of the shoe.You can buy them in one colour or a selection of colours, You can buy two basic colours and mix and match, the colour combinations are endless.
They put a new life into old shoes and offer a trendy fashionable look to plain shoes. you can even use them in all weathers too.

What did we think?
Although these say they fit all sizes, they seemed a little bit big on some of the eyelets of Tillys shoes (toddler size 8). But she did like them and they were all fitted in minutes. they were easy to fit too which is a bonus. I didnt have to worry about her shoelaces coming undone anymore, making shoes safer for her to wear. Kimmy also wore some and this is what she had to say ' they were easy to put into my shoes, my shoes felt as secure as shoe laces but without the nuisance of having to tie up laces multiple times during the day and my shoes where no more difficult to put on. overall i think that they are a fab and really useful addition to my shoes'
We even had people stopping us in the street to ask where these came from. they are definitely a people stopper, and Tilly loved the attention she got from the shoeps
