For children, wearing traditional shoelaces can cause them to trip and require frequent retying. As an alternative, parents may want to try no-tie laces; once installed, they turn any pair of sneakers or lace-ups into tieless slip-ons. To help you find the perfect pair, FN curated some of the best options for kids of all ages — even teens can appreciate the ease of access and more polished aesthetic they provide. These styles are made with elastic to help you get the perfect fit without any hassle. They also come in a range of fun colors and with sleek accents to suit any wardrobe.
