Lace Anchors®: The History Behind Our Easy-Tie Shoelaces

new-template-6.jpg

At Lace Anchors®, we didn’t set out to change the world. We didn’t want to take over the Internet. We just wanted an easier way to quickly and reliably tie shoes! Like most inventors, we developed Lace Anchors® to solve a specific problem. We hated the way it felt to trip over shoelaces that wouldn’t stay tied. Plus, we dreaded making cool shoelace designs because we had to knot our shoelaces to keep the designs in place, and those knots never held.

The Beginning of Lace Anchors® for Quick-Tie Laces

This was our reason for inventing quick-tie laces that didn’t require a bow. However, we had some specific goals in mind and we weren’t about to compromise on them. Our easy-tie shoelaces had to:

  • Keep shoelaces in place, even during the most rigorous workouts. We knew this would allow anyone wearing our invention to turn their pair of sneakers into slip-ons.
  • Be affordable. Everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of quick-tie shoelaces.
  • Be easy to understand and use. We didn’t want Lace Anchors® to be tough to figure out. Easy-tie laces should be easy!

We were serious about doing everything the right way from the beginning. The Lace Anchors® design was created quickly, and the prototype for our quick-tie laces was actually made using a piece of huge plastic building block. The final design is something we’re proud of and we know our customers love.
