Fantastic product- exceeded expectations.


Bought this product to try for my young adult son, who has limited use of one of his hands, to use in a pair of canvas shoes with limited laces. I was a bit concerned that they might not be comfortable on the top of the foot or be adjustable enough, but no worries. These are fantastic. The design allows the laces to be adjusted as needed and the ease in which to put the shoe on and off is terrific. My son has had no difficulties whatsoever getting in and out of his shoes independently and the shoes stay on well (meaning you can get the laces snug enough). I'm assuming as they are magnets, they should last a long time. I plan to order every color for athletic shoes next.More > < Less




I bought these for my 6 yr old grandson and he loves them. He is very active, running, jumping and plays hard and these magnets stick through it! Great purchase and very pleased.More > < Less


work great!


I got these for my husband, who has some quirky back problems. He loves them because he does not have to lean over to put his tennis on. He sits in a chair and crosses the leg he puts the shoe on and they click together-quick-quick.More > < Less


Hard for toddlers


But we are working on them! We get lots of "what's that?" And "Those look cool!" (We got hot pink for teal Nikes). The magnets are so strong it's hard for my 3yr old to undo, but I'm sure she will get them soon :)More > < Less


Game changing!


What time savers these are! They have significantly decreased frustration from all of us in the house, when we are rushing out the door in the mornings, or having to take shoes off just to quick run back into the house for something. I am on OT and certainly appreciate the importance of learning to tie your shoes, but it has been great to have the Zubits on the shoes worn most frequently. We practice tying with the other shoes when we are not pressed for time.More > < Less

About Zubits

Untied for Good

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.
