easily wearing / shoelace

easily wearing

Why the aglet of the shoelace must be straight? With this doubt, we started our initial exploration and design. After rounds of observation, we found that such straight aglet would bring people a lot of inconvenience. It is not only different to pass through the shoe eyelet, but also easy to damage itself. We finally found that if the aglet can be bent to a certain angle and be designed into a thin-tipped shape, it would be more convenient to use.
