Ditch Your Laces
This hack’s for you if you prefer to have a pair of shoes that you can quickly slip on, but your shoelaces are dragging you down. You can turn any pair of laced shoes into slip on’s with some zip ties. This is most convenient if you’re just running out to grab the mail or walk the dog.
First, remove your laces, and put your shoes on your feet. Next, work the zip ties into each lace hole, and while you’re still wearing them, secure them so that they are snug. You should be able to slip your shoes off and back on again with no effort. You may need to replace the zip ties from time to time if they get loose.
