Loopeez Shoe Tying Aid: When mother of three, Courtney Maslow became frustrated trying to teach her daughter, then age seven, how to tie her shoes she knew there had to be better way. As hard as her daughter tried she could not hold the “loops” in place and complete the bow. Courtney realized this was not just a problem for her daughter, but for other kids as well. Disappointed with the available shoe tying products on the market Courtney decided to create a product that would teach shoe tying directly on the shoe. After experimenting with different prototypes she found a durable material that would hold the shoelaces in place. Courtney had mom's test the product with their kids. The result were amazing, finally a product that could help teach kids to tie shoes in a matter of minutes.
"Before Loopeez, shoe tying was a difficult skill for some kids. I could not believe how many children could use a computer but could not tie their shoes," said Maslow. "Every time I looked down at a child’s shoes nine out of ten times they would be wearing Velcro or walking around with their shoelaces untied. It was crazy that kids going into middle school still hadn’t mastered this essential skill."
The fashionable teaching tool comes in four boys styles and four girls styles along with clear and white for older kids and adults who might not want the device to be as visible on the shoe. There is also a new line of Bi-Color shoelaces that make shoe tying even easier, allowing kids to see the difference between the left and right shoelaces. Loopeez Shoe Tying Aid retails online at loopeez.com for $5.95 a pair. The Bi- Color shoelaces retail for an unbelievable $4.00 per pair. Loopeez are a great teaching tool for children learning to tie shoes, Special Needs kids, Stroke Victims, people with Arthritis or anyone who needs assistance tying their shoes.
