There’s a new way to lace the shoes you love—the HICKIES® lacing system. Simply put, HICKIES® is a smart, easy to use lacing system that connects each pair of eyelets independently and makes your shoes look, fit, and perform better. With the HICKIES® lacing system any shoe becomes a slip-on that securely adapts to your foot’s movements, and renders knots and bows to be a sloppy look of the past.

Sneakers have evolved in every way except for shoelaces – they've been around since 3500 BC. Today shoes are made using the most advanced materials and latest innovations: we walk on chambers of air, wear custom memory foam insoles, and have threaded adaptative uppers. SO WHY DO WE KEEP LACING UP OUR SHOES WITH STRINGS?

 

By connecting each pair of eyelets as unit independent from the next, HICKIES® is the only lacing system that allows you to customize your fit with different levels of tension along your foot. Instead of a single lace running through the length of your shoe, each HICKIES® strap expands and contracts independently, working in tandem to respond to each flexing muscle and rotation of your foot. With HICKIES®, your shoe molds to every curve and arch, and fits like a glove.

 

Your sneakers will feel more comfortable and perform better than ever before.

 

 

 

HICKIES® is the only lacing system that allows you to adjust your fit and have different levels of tension along your entire foot. This is because the HICKIES® Lacing System is modular, meaning instead of one lace running through the length of each shoe, you have one strap per pair of eyelets. This gives you maximum control when it comes to customizing tightness, comfort, and style. The HICKIES® lacing system fits any sneaker. Experiment to find your perfect fit.

Evolution never stops, neither do we. Over the last four years, we've been hard at work improving our original model. When you spoke, we listened. We’ve upgraded our original design to make HICKIES 2.0 stronger and sleeker than our 1st generation, creating a better footwear experience for all. We also dove into all the details and now offer two models in order to better fit ADULTS and KIDS shoes!

 

We spent the last two years working on HICKIES 2.0 and HICKIES KIDS, we have created two bible size books of drafts, drawings, sketches and research.

The baby blue shown in the photos is not available?

Simon Lea a month ago

Hey Liyang,

Funny, we're not too sure as well why there's no baby blue colour option listed in their colour options so we don't want to jump the gun and offer the colour even though its in their promo pictures. Sorry about this!

liyang29 a month ago

No worries I was just very curious about the discrepancy lol.

parkiparki 2 months ago

Could we please perhaps add on the colours which are now available as stretch goals? Or the option of choosing the colours after?

Simon Lea 2 months ago

Hey there, thanks for letting us know! I have added the 3 additional colours from the stretch goals as you've requested, happy ordering! :)

parkiparki 2 months ago

That's great! Thanks! :)

Hi, any chance the 2 new colours will be added to this hunt or can we change the colours after the hunt closes depending on how many colours are released with the KS program?

Simon Lea a month ago

Hey Phoenix,

Yes! You can definitely change the colour. All you have to do is email hello@grouphunt.sg with your order number and what colours you'd like to get instead. Do send in the email before the hunt ends! Thanks :)

Many shoe lace substitute are not able to expand and contract well. This eliminates the need to tie shoes lace and makes it convenient to slip-on shoes.
