PROS: very easy to install or lace into your shoes. Took me 5 minutes and I have tabs I had to coax the Hickies through. Very sturdy and flexible, but keep sharp fingernails away from them. They look like you could pinch them in half!! lol!!
Lighter than shoelaces.
You get three options for lacing - tight, regular, medium, so if you're not happy with the tension, just change the way they're laced. The instructions tell you how.
If you like color coordinating stuff, they come in enough colors to do that. If you don't like looking like you're a 5-year old you can get plain old black. They won't make your feet look less fat, but no one will notice you don't have laces.
Good, clear, easy to follow instructions, if you don't have questions and are a visual learner. Really, you can figure this out. If you can't, then maybe someone else DOES need to be putting your shoes on for you.
Good packaging and arrived a day ahead of schedule. Under promise and overdeliver is always a good policy.
These are the kind of things design and package wise Apple might make.
There are 14 Hickies in a package - enough for most shoes and extra if something breaks.
They won't get knotted when wet. In fact, water won't affect them at all. I sail and kayak and these are perfect for slipping my shoes off and on with one hand as I usually have a paddle or something in one hand anyway. They slip on and off easily.
Your kids are going to love them. Your spouse is going to love them.
CONS: INsanely, ridiculously overpriced. I can see $10, or would snap up a dozen boxes at $8, but $14.99!? And I see that price has dropped a buck since I bought mine. I'd have rated them a 5-star except for the price.
There could be enough for two pairs of shoes, at first I thought there were. But, no such luck. You'll use 10-12 of the Hickies and then have a few spares to throw into a junk drawer where you can't find them if one breaks. I think if they'd include another four to six hickies for the price, so you get enough for two shoes with no spares, the price would be resonable. I am using one of the spares to hold my gym key to my shoe. I think as long as there is tension on it, it should be fine. You can also loosen a Hickey to thread a car key or even those key/money wallets to the shoe, so that's good, but I'm too lazy to move it up to the PROS. I'm really trying to find a CON, but I can honestly say the price is the only think I can see right now. I've slipped them off and on a couple of times, and walked around in them and they're really great. The "regular" tension is fine for me. I guess if you're a runner or you obcess about how your shoes fit you'll have to fiddle with the tension, but as one short, fat, old lady who mostly walks for exercise and spends a lot of time with her feet in the water, I love 'em.
A little bit about myself: I HATE shoe laces. People think I'm funny about this, but tying shoes is one of the few things in life that I absolutely hate. If it were up to me, we would all just go barefoot and/or wear sandals in the summer and UGGs in the winter...anything to avoid having to sit down and tie shoes. Consequently I have worn many pairs of shoes in my life that were either less attractive than they should have been or less healthy for my feet, just to avoid tying stupid shoes. I know, it's a weird quirk, but that's how I am.
For Christmas my wife got me a really nice new pair of Asics. They fit great and feel great. I love them enough to wear them all the time despite the laces. But then I saw an ad for these Hickies and figured I'd give them a try (even with all the bad reviews). My shoes still fit great and now they're slip-ons. The timing has been perfect, because I recently badly injured myself and can't cross my leg to tie my shoes until I heal up. It's great to be able to just step right into my nice shoes.
(For the record, maybe I'm a nutjob and maybe I'm not. I know it's a weird quirk, but I just really don't like tying shoes and it bugs me that they come untied at the most inconvenient time in my day. I'm happier not tying my shoes.)
UPDATE (July 2016): I've been using these for over six months now and I still love them, but they don't last forever. If you have used these for a few weeks/months and decide that you like them, buy another pack and keep a few in your desk drawer at work and some at home. That way if/when one of them snaps, you'll be able to replace it with a fresh one.
I read the reviews, even though I was afraid that they were going to make my shoes too tight, I bought them. They come with pictures showing how to make them regular, loose, and tight. I tried the regular and it was too tight, for my liking. I tried the loose and it was still a little tight. So I modified the loose (see pictures) which fits perfectly! It's so nice to be able to slide my shoes on and have the perfect lace tension!
I have only used them on one run, thus far, and will update this review in a few months.
