SCHNÜRRLIE silicone ribbons
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 halt lace-up silicone ribbons are increasingly replacing our well-known conventional laces. 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?
Lace-up instead of shoelaces

In addition to the classic fabric laces, the lace-up silicone described here. Similar systems are many. Examples are the hickies. The benefits of lace-up are clearly defined – the ribbons are supposed to 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 lace-up 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 lace-up can be ordered in a variety of colours. Just click up or google the search term.
Alternative rubber bands

These are also available from lace-up. 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 individual bands: The voltage can be replicated. This is especially important for running or hiking boots disadvantage compared to the single bands: The ribbons do not 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.
