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


Best invention ever!

My granddaughter's shoelaces were constantly coming untied. But did she bother to stop long enough to tie them? Of course not. Even after she actually tripped on her own shoelace and fell, she was not convinced keeping them tied would be worth the slight delay in her busy day.

When I hooked her up with the Magnetic Shoe Closures, she was thrilled. They held her shoes closed comfortably and securely all day! I am definitely buying more off these for my own shoes!

My daughter had trouble tying her shoes and it was causing delays getting ready for school in the morning. These made getting her shoes on a snap!More > < Less


Great product

The Zubits work great for me. I am 29 weeks pregnant & cant tie my shoes anymore. They are a bit challenging to get the right fit, at first. I had them too tight & they bruised one of my feet, not too badly. Now I have them loosened enough & they work well! The magnets are strong (even on the child size), they don't come open unless I want them to. Easy to fasten & slip the shoes off.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.
