It’s mid August, and while back to school is just three weeks away, we are taking advantage of every single day. This weekend, we took an impromptu trip up to Lake George. I’m pretty sure I had been there as a child, but it was a first with kids of my own. We arrived yesterday and jumping right into lake life we started with a hike.
My kids typically opt for sneakers over sandals or slip ins, but with that come the dreaded laces to be tied by little fingers. Walking around with untied laces is my pet peeve, and somehow Ryder tends to be more of a culprit for this, than the girls. Not to mention, sloppy shoes and laces cause them to trip and fall! A few years back, I discovered Hickies which was a huge game changer for us.
HICKIES is a no-tie, flexible and customizable responsive lacing system for kids and adults. Each pack contains 10-14 elastic ties, enough for a pair of kids shoes, which can be threaded in different ways to customize the fit. Fasten them once, then simply stretch to slide the shoe on and off. They even come in a variety of color combinations, giving your kicks some extra flare!
This year, I let the kids choose their own colors. Siella picked a new sparkle pink, Ryder went with the neon yellow to match his Adidas, and Gemma she liked HICKIES Neon elastic ties, which compliment her Punky Brewster personality perfectly!
Here’s to making back to school sneakers a bit more fashionable, fun, and most importantly, easy to get on. Check out SITC’s Back to School Guide for a chance to win HICKIES, along with tons of other great things!

Those kicks are so awesome! I love how snazzy they are without being TOO in your face.
Hickies is a great line. My son would love those shoes. The green laces are a nice touch.
I’m not sure I like the name HICKIES- but these definitely look like a useful tool for back to school. Anything to get them out of the door faster!
I have been seeing ads for Hickies a lot lately. They look great.
These are really nice shoes. They pack personality without being too “loud”. The kids would love these for back to school!
I love the benefit of Hickies as untied shoes are not only dangerous but also rather distracting. I like that they are for both kids and adults; they definitely give a more fun fashion look to shoes.
Your kids are SO cute! I love the sneakers as well. 🙂
Love the no-tie lacing system. Even once kids have learned to tie their shoes, loose or untied laces can slow them down, and we know how much kids love being on the go! They have great color choices, too.
Hickies look like a great way for kids to tie their shoes. I would have loved them for my Son when he was younger. I will have to tell my friends with kids about them.
Oh those rock! Definitely a good alternative to laces for active kids. They look stylish too!
This is really cool! I love the convenience of not tying your child’s shoes again and again!!
These are such a great idea. It would make it so much easier in the mornings once school starts.
What a great tool Hickies are. Interesting name, though. No need to worry about these coming undone and tripping on them.
I so need these for my kids! How genius!
Super cute kids! I love their sneakers and fashion sense at their young ages! I cant wait for school to start!
