When I first heard about DOOHICKIES, the plastic snaps that remove the need to tie shoelaces, I assumed that they were meant exclusively for young children who were still learning the Loop de Loop song. I received a pair of DOOHICKIES in Princess Pink, and they are very cute and suitable for any little princess – you can click here to see how they work.
I also learned that this line is actually made for all ages, with DOOHICKIES for kids and HICKIES for grown-up shoes. In fact, HICKIES are apparently quite popular with the athletic set, as they turn your shoes into slip-ons and remove the annoyance of untied shoelaces and getting tripped. In fact, as I think about it, both Jai and I tend to like our shoelaces tied loose enough that we can pretty much just slip our shoes on, so this makes sense – when I first met Jai, he was using some old electrical cord on his boots in lieu of shoelaces, so I think he was ahead of his time. 😉
