Flat shoes in summer, sports shoes while running-we are happy if we don’t have to tie the shoes every time. Flexible laces or hickies are increasingly replacing our well-known conventional ribbons. The advantage is obvious. You save the cords and the shoes are quickly tightened. But which valley holds up well? What are the differences among manufacturers?
Hickies instead of shoelaces
[amazon _ link asinsious ‘B06Y8XP1X2.B0186Z5QAO ‘template = ‘ ProductCarousel ‘ storstorm Eérounds all4run04-21 ‘ marketplace = ‘ DE ‘ link_id=’8faf0ea7-b9ba-11e8-ade5-8d79437ec8be ‘] The company that launched these hickies got nearly $160,000 subsidized with the Kickstarter project. The benefits are clearly defined – the hickies should completely eliminate the daily shoe binding. We also ordered a pack and tested it for you. In the test we have the black variant, the other sculls differ only in color. Material and handling are always the same. The hickies delivered are contained in an identical length in an elongated pack. The installation is very simple. After removing the old shoelaces, it can start. The silicone straps can be easily removed. On one side they have a small loop, the other side offers the counterpart to holding. The overlying silicone nose is hidden in a small hole available for this purpose, so that the whole thing looks neat. The new tapes are inserted individually, whether over cross or horizontal is a matter of personal taste. Stress with putting the shoes on was yesterday. Just slip into your shoes and have a direct feel of a tied shoe. Our concerns that the shoes are sitting too loose or uncomfortable could be allayed after first wearing them. The hickies can be ordered in a variety of colours. Just click up or google the search term.
Alternative rubber bands

Here we find only three individual parts, the actual rubber leg, a clipper (fastiger) for the descles, which serve to feast and a closing part, which is attached to the end of the shoelaces. Again, old shoelaces apply-bundling in new elastic band. After that, the fastener is placed over the cords, tightened a little and overriding rubber with approx. 2-3 cm of survive cut off. The ends are clicked together with the final part. Advantage over the hickies: The voltage can be replicated. This is especially important for running or hiking boots disadvantage to the hickies: The ribbons don’t last forever. With me, they were shamed through after 7 months. But with an acquisition price of a few euros, that’s not bad either. Here, too, you can buy the ribbons in a variety of colors, reflective or not.
