Everytime I buy shoes with laces, I can't stand the laces. They feel so white, so long, so dorky. Well, along came Hickies, these things are going to change laces forever. For $14.99 you can purchase whatever color you love most and enjoy "grip without the slip". These are one size fits all, including kids. This makes a no-lace shoe. Very cool. Check out the cool story behind this company and shop all the different colors at the Hickies.com website.
