Learning to tie shoelaces is one of the more challenging aspects of childhood for most kids. Between the development of fine-motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and other development challenges, it can be frustrating for them to learn an essential task. With that, there are a number of benefits that come from choosing no-tie laces. In today’s post, we’ll take a look at a few of them.
At Synch Bands, we’re proud to offer elastic, tieless laces that stay locked in place and snug all day long. Discover how easy it is to slip on your favorite Chucks or Vans with Synch Bands. Find the perfect colors for your style, lock them in place, and go! Order online today.
No matter what approach you use to teach your child to tie their shoelaces, it can still be fairly challenging for them to figure everything out. Tieless laces offer a much more convenient way to help your child slip on their shoes and have them fit securely all day long. The Synch clip allows you or your child to adjust the tightness of the shoe so they feel comfortable no matter what activity they engage in. In fact, when you use tieless laces from Synch bands, all your child will have to learn is how to thread the lace through the eyelets of the shoe, which is much easier than learning how to tie a traditional shoelace.
Multiple Color Options
At Synch bands, we get that black is a great color for a lot of outfits, but sometimes you want to spice things up, which is why we offer a wide variety of color options. From Blue Royale and Gnarly Brown to Grateful Red, Slime Green, and more, you’re sure to find the perfect color of tieless laces for every occasion. In fact, we offer video tutorials that teach you and your kid how to double up different colors to create unique patterns.
Speaking of different patterns options, you might just be amazed at the creative designs your kid comes up with when you let them play with their new tieless laces from Synch bands. While we show how to do a number of different lacing patterns on our website, there are so many more that your kid can explore and play with to create a signature lacing pattern and color style that represents their personality.
Eliminate Tripping Hazards
Even when kids get their shoes tied before leaving the house, unless they’ve truly mastered the art of tying traditional shoelaces, chances are that they will be trailing laces a short time later. While kids never think they’ll be the one who trips on their shoelaces, we all know it’s really just a matter of time. In fact, you may already be nodding your head in agreement as you think about how many times you’ve told your own kid to tie their shoes. Have you said it so much you wish they could just wear flip flops everywhere? We get it! That’s actually why we came up with elastic tieless shoelaces in the first place! Once you buy your kid their first pair of tieless laces, not only will you eliminate future tripping hazards, but you’ll be able to stop nagging them to tie their shoes.
When you think about your own time learning to tie shoelaces, it may be so long ago that it really doesn’t seem like it was that big of a deal. The truth is, however, that learning to tie traditional shoelaces can be very stressful for a lot of kids — so much so that there are kids in upper elementary who still have their parents tie their shoes for them! No parent wants to create a more stressful life for their kid. When you order elastic tieless laces from Synch Bands, you’ll be able to help your kid feel confident about securing their own shoes and making them stay on all day long.
