Inflatable Shoelace / Shoelace

Inflatable Shoelace
Inflatable Shoelace

We often have the same experience that the tightened shoelace would get loose automatically, which brings us unnecessary trouble or even danger. The inflatable shoelace is aiming to solve this problem in an interesting way. We inflate the region where shoelace is usually tightened. With the air flowing principle, the air of tightened position would flow around to form inflation. This can prevent the shoelace from getting loose effectively. When we want to untie the shoelace, we just need to give a little stronger drawing.
