Hickies: Turns any shoe into a slip-on

As they used to say on every pre-1995 cartoon when a plan was being hatched, “It sounds crazy, but it just might work!” I suppose that’s what Mariquel said to her husband¬†Gaston when he came up with the idea for Hickies ($16). These rubber and plastic… um, doohickeys, are meant to replace shoelaces, turning any pair of shoes into stylish, hassle-free slip-ons. One size fits all, and with a multitude of colors, you can mix & match like a mix & match fiend. For the sake of laziness and the future of this husband-and-wife business team, lets hope these take off.
