Shoes designed with velcro straps instead of laces to keep feet comfortably in place aren’t just for kids or the elderly. A number of brands these days offer attractive styles for men and women who would rather not deal with constantly retying their laces. To help narrow down things for men in search of velcro footwear options, FN did some research and compiled a list of our favorites. We selected a range of silhouettes for various occasions, including a classic skate-inspired sneaker, an athletic runner and a sleek loafer hybrid from Calvin Klein that can be worn casually or dressed up.
