NoShoelaceButBetter / Shoes

NoShoelaceButBetter

Shoe laces are used in diverse type of shoes. However, they are not handy for sports shoes, since they make it difficult to wear or take off the shoes, and the laces could get untied during sports. This particularly matters for professional athletes. There have been numerous ideas about shoes without laces, but most of them were poor fit for jogging since they easily come off.

“No Shoelace But Better” is a easy to put on or take off. It gives tight and comfortable fit to your feet from all sides, enhancing the feeling of integration of foot and shoe to its maximum. This is particularly useful for shoes for various sports.
