We live in a fast paced world, so why shouldn’t our shoes. I mean tying and untying them just doesn’t make sense in this society of innovators. While shoes using the ZIPPED, an active indiegogo project, aren’t the Marty McFly shoes from Back to the Future, they are a nice alternative to tying your laces. The ZIPPED is basically a zipper system that you lace into your shoes to allow you to zip them up as opposed to tying them. With a variety of sizes, eyelet numbers and colors available, the ZIPPED can meet almost any shoe’s needs. While I tend not to wear lace up shoes, I can see the usefulness in this product for things like low-cut boots or high top sneakers and for children or people with dexterity issues. Funding for this project runs until April 18, 2014 and if successful the ZIPPED is scheduled to ship in the June 2014 time frame. The ZIPPED has many pledge points with a $10 pledge getting you a pair of ZIPPED from the standard line.
