I feel like Hickies was invented for people like me. Being a parent of 2 small boys, one who likes to unlace his shoes and then make them into a knotted mess of shoe laces Hickies speak to me. Jack has never liked shoes that lace because I feel like they just cramp his style. He is independent and loves to do everything on his own and frankly has always been this way. He loves shoes like Sperry’s but in the winter months we need something a little more on his feet.
Hickies held up to the “boy test” that everything we use gets put through. This means he ran around outside like a maniac, got into dirt, mud and anything else he could find to make a boy happy and the Hickies were still going strong. I also found that he was not compelled to mess with them like traditional shoe laces.
Retailing for $11.99 each (buy 3 get 1 free) Hickies would make an awesome stocking stuffer and they even have adult sizes which are $17.99 and come in so many colors! They literally have Hickies to match any pair of shoes that would be in your closet. I am thinking these would feel great while running on a treadmill or even while being outdoors doing yard work since oftentimes I feel that my sneakers are just not laced quite right sometimes and that does not make for comfortable work.
These are super easy to put on any pair of shoes that I have tried so far and we have had no issues with them at all. Looking forward to buying many more pairs to match lots of shoes in our wardrobes!
