Perhaps people don't waste a particularly frustrating amount of time trying to tie up their shoelaces, yet the SmartFit Shoe concept does offer a much more efficient method. Designer Elena Gerber envisions a means of tightening sneakers around the wearer's tootsies with just a single stretchy string.
There would be no need to bother with a dozen grommets, knotted laces or even with a couple of velcro tabs on your running shoes. Anchored at two points on either side of the sporting accessory, the quick closure device is spanned by one flexible cord that renders the whole length of the SmartFit Shoe concept snug, from tongue to toe. Instantly, the design, the use and the performance are significantly more efficient.
