Great product - But Beware of Magnets
08/12/2019 by Mary Jean
This is listed as kid/elder. Takes a little getting used to in getting fit right. My only warning (which I feel should be in the listing) is that the magnets are extremely, extremely powerful. They snapped shut on my finger and I ended up with a painful blood blister. I would not recommend for young children but with this warning is perfectly fine for adults.
My hands were not strong enough.

You’ll never need to tie your shoes again with Zubits, the magnetic shoe closure. Simply lace the magnets into your shoelaces and you’re ready to go. Super strong magnets hold fast during strenuous activity, but are easy to open. Slip on, click in place, and get out the door. Your shoes will look great (no floppy bows) and you can even hang them up easily.


The world has been tying shoelaces for far too long, don’t you think? And they’re always coming untied. Meet Zubits, the magnetic shoe closures.

When Founder Ryan Wiens’s boys were young, he noticed that they always wore their easy Velcro shoes instead of their nice laced ones. So he came up with a solution to make shoes easier for kids and adults alike. Zubits was crowdfunded on Kickstarter in only a month.

Zubits gives you the ease of a slip-on with any laced shoe. Just lace the magnets into your shoelaces and you’re ready to go! The magnets are strong enough to hang your shoes from the fridge or over a hook, and they’ll stay in place until you step on the heel and pop them open again.

No more floppy bows or laces to trip on, and no more retying. Zubits make shoes look better, too. Notice how shoe stores display their laces tucked in and neat—rather than tied in unsightly bows? Now you can have that look all the time. Slip on those shoes, click, and go. more Their Story
