Lock Laces for kids who can't tie shoes yet

locklaces.jpgOr anyone who likes the concept!

Susan M. left this comment on my search for no-tie laces for my sons with Down syndrome whose shoe-tying skills are not keeping pace with their feet which have outgrown most velcro-closure shoes:

I just got an e-mail this morning from Lock Laces. You can use the code "repeat" to get $1 off each pair. That makes them $3.99/pair at www.locklaces.com The e-mail said "Feel free to give this code to your family and friends as well so that they may receive the discount too for knowing such a cool person like you!" lol

I just ordered some for Jesse, Daniel and Justin. Jonny does know how to tie his shoes - he learned when he was about 15, as I recall. What a triumphant moment that was!

I might get these for myself! I wear sneakers in the house, but take them off whenever I leave or go outside (which is frequently, since we have a new puppy) and I hate having to re-tie my shoes all the time. What a great idea! Thanks for passing it on. :)

Thanks for the great idea - my son is going into middle school and I have been dreading PE and him trying to get changed. I think these will work well.
