Not Tying Shoes, Laces are a Pain

Tying shoes is a regular part of getting the day started for most people but it can be a daily struggle for some.  Manual dexterity may be diminished because of accident, surgery or disease like arthritis and just bending to reach the shoe laces may be painful or impossible . 

In many instances, shoes or boots with laces are the preferable footwear for proper support, safety and of course fashion.  Fortunately, there’s a clever solution to keep those favorite shoes on the feet without the discomfort of tying and untying laces.

Perma-Ty Elastic Shoelaces replace existing laces with a stretchy lace that allows a shoe to remain tied closed but lets the shoe expand slightly and slip onto the foot, generally without the aid of a shoehorn.  To see the laces, try this link http://care4u-store.stores.yahoo.net/738130030.html .  (If a shoe horn is needed, consider a long handle model, with a “T” shaped handle that allows a more comfortable, straight wrist and closed fist grip, try this link to see more information http://care4u-store.stores.yahoo.net/738242000.html).  The laces are available in white, brown or black and each packet contains 3 pairs of laces to update 3 pairs of shoes.  There’s a medium length lace, 24″, that works with shoes that have fewer than 5 eyelets, and a longer lace, 30″ that should be selected for shoes with 6 eyelets. 

This simple idea can really help someone start each day on the right foot.
