The Rolling 8 Turns Laced Shoes into a Slip-On Footwear

The Rolling 8 is a shoe accessory that transforms wearables with laces into slip-on footwear. The device is a rubberized accessory that ensure laces are pulled tight so the shoes fit as though the strings are tied, without the wear necessarily having to know how to tie them. The accessory is ideal for adults and children alike, looking for a way to turn laced shoes into a style that can be worn as a slip-on.

The device is made from two rubber loops, that fasten around the top of the shoe at the point where the laces are traditionally tied. The positioning of the loops and the added slot on either side allows consumers to slot in the laces, so they remain tight and fitted without having to be tied.
