I'm not advocating for velcro.
I'm talking about switching to bike tubes the next time you need to get new laces for your shoes.
Recycling and reducing waste is part of Vie Cycle's mission. Turns out there are a million and one ways to reuse busted bike tubes. Shoe laces!?! That's what's up and for real, they are the best thing. Every time I put my shoe on I'm like, "woah! this is such an enjoyable experience!" Maybe you feel that way anyway about shoes. I didn't. I hate having to untie, loosen laces, scrunch in my foot and then tighten up and tie my shoes every time I leave the house.
Bike tubes just made my Vans into slip on shoes that get instantly tight when my foot is in them.
