Link / Link


Link is a very interesting shoelace design which comes from a Chinese old legend. In this story, red line is just like Cupid’s arrow, and it was used by Chinese love god called moon lord to match pairs of lovers. Based on the story, the color of the shoelace is set as red and magnet material is adopted on the end of the shoelace. When people wore this shoelace pass each other by on the street, an occasional Link may bring them a few words and a warm smile. The interaction and communication between people will be enhanced effectively.
