Tired of constantly tying shoes? Try Zubits!
In 2012, Ryan & Valerie Wiens started asking if there could be an easier way to put on and take off shoes. Their three boys were their inspiration. Working with engineers at a high-tech magnetics engineering company in California, Zubits magnetic shoe closures were born.
In 2014, Zubits magnetic closures were launched as a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter to help raise money for the first manufacturing and production. The response was overwhelming. 7,200 individual backers from all over the world pledged their support for Zubits™ in one month and made Zubits™ a reality!
When I saw Zubits magnetic shoe closures for the first time I really liked the concept. My children don’t like tying their shoes. I have one child who usually crams her foot into an already tied shoe while slowly breaking down the inner back heel of the shoe. Then, another child who walks around with his shoes untied most of the time!
What I didn’t realize was how popular Zubits would be in my house. My husband was actually the first to try them! He put a pair of Zubits on his running shoes. They worked like a charm! Once the kids noticed them they wanted some on their shoes. Now all of their friends want Zubits. My 10 yr old son said I should sell them. 🙂 Lucky for me I can keep my blogging job because Zubits.com already takes care of that. They actually have FREE shipping for the month of June! And..they have given our readers a coupon code for 10% off! Use code: ZUBITSMDR at checkout. Expires 6/30/15.
Zubits are great for kids 4+ to adults and even seniors. There are three sizes.
- Size 1 is for kids 4 -8 years old, senior adults, or for specials needs individuals.
- Size 2 is for youth ages 9 – adult. This is the best size for most adults including men who run. Great for gym.
- Size 3 is for larger adults and is also recommended for recreational sports, shoes with stiffer soles, and high athletic use.
If you are still not quite sure, there is a size selector that can assist you on the website.
I bet you’re wondering how do you get your foot in and out without squeezing the heal of your shoe. My kids taught me how! 🙂 If you turn the magnets they will twist apart allowing you to take your shoes off or put them on with ease. Once they are on, simply put the magnets side by side and they will connect.
What do I do with my extra shoe laces?
Each pair of Zubits comes with Lace Anchors that will secure your laces so you can tuck them into your shoes. I have one child who used the lace anchors and one who tied the laces in a knot and cut the excess lace off. I would recommend using the lace anchors!
As you can tell we have been thrilled with our Zubits magnetic shoe closures. They are available in Black, Grey, White, Brown, Blue, and Pink.
