These Celebrities Are Wearing Sneakers Without Laces

Some of fashion’s most influential celebrities have been ditching their laces. Gigi Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kendall Jenner and Jessica Alba are the latest to try out Hickies, a product that gets rid of traditional shoelaces.

Crafted to work with any shoe with eyelets, the Hickies lacing system is comprised of fasteners made out of durable thermoplastic elastomer, that can be threaded through, clasped together and then left alone.

This no-tie shoelace alternative is designed to adapt to a customer’s lifestyle — whether they’re running, traveling, training or just on the go — so you never have to tie or untie your shoes again. And Hickies has some A-list fans.

Ambrosio has been spotted many times coming to and from the gym wearing Hickies, often pairing them with Nikes.

Hickies, which is sold in 44 different countries, also has a variety of color choices and can be adjusted based on desired tightness.

Created by Gaston Frydlewski and wife Mariquel Waingarten, Hickies launched in 2012 and has received investments from the venture arm of Adidas, called Hydra Ventures, among others. The Brooklyn-based company also has product available for kids (Mason Disick has been spotted in a pair of the shoelace replacements) in a variety of color packs.
