HICKIES

HICKIES Elastic Lacing System turns any sneaker into a slip-on and lets you customize your footwear in unique color combinations. Never tie or untie your shoes again. Founded by Argentinian coupe Gaston Frydlewski & Mariquel Waingarten, in less than 15 months, HICKIES has evolved from a Kickstarter Project to a multi-national company selling in over 13 countries. At its core, HICKIES takes an everyday issue (untied shoelaces) and addresses it with a simple, elegantly designed solution. Laces out, HICKIES in!
