Rather than relying solely on laces or velcro to make sure your footwear is on tight, one entrepreneur is trying to introduce magnets as a secure shoe fastener. Currently seeking financing via crowdfunding site Kickstarter, Zubits are shoe closures that can be laced onto your shoes. Conceived and designed by Ryan Wiens, this invention is patent pending.

The "no-tie shoelace solution" allows you to essentially make any pair of shoes slip-ons. With the revolutionary shoe fastener, your footwear is secured with a simple click and taking them off can be done without using your hands. The Zubits offer a clean look and do away with messy knots and bows. They will stay put when running or during athletic activity as well. They also come in a variety of colors to match different pairs of shoes.
