Lace up, velcro or slip on?

Take it anyway that you want, for you or your kids. Which and why?

  • Velcro or slip on for my girl. She tries to tie her shoes but just ties plain knots until there's nothing left to tie with. :-)
    For me, slip on flip flops every day of the year.

  • I always buy lace-up tennis shoes, but in the summer they wear flip flops. I think the velcro shoes look silly, and I want my kids to know how to tie their shoes :)

  • I like slip ons and velcro.
    My kids have ADHD and laces are not worth the fuss and the fits!

  • slip ons

  • We love slip ons.

  • Lace ups for work, slip ons for time off for me, and slip ons or velcro for my son. Because of his autism, his fine motor skills for tying are not good. We've been working on this since he was about 4 years old.

  • Slip on for me it's much easier lol. For my daughter I rather have lace up because she LOVES to take off her shoes, she's a pro at taking off her shoes with velcro and slip ons.
