I was given the opportunity to review Hickies and provide an honest opinion on the product. I had never heard of Hickies before now, I allowed my son to try a pair as well. Both my son and I love the concept. He used Hickies on his sneakers for school and I used mine on my workout sneakers. The fact that you don't have to worry about laces are amazing. For whatever reason my son's shoes can NEVER stay tied. I just love the idea of not having to deal with shoelaces. I would highly recommend Hickies to any one with small children.
