The Zubits magnetic laces is designed for use by individuals with arthritis or fine motor or mobility disabilities who have difficulty reaching or tying their shoelaces. The device works by slipping into the shoe and clicking the magnet to tie the laces together. The Zubits can be opened by standing on the back of the shoe and lifting the foot up or by slipping a finger behind one side. After the magnets split apart the user has a wide open shoe again with no knots to untie later.

In 2012, Ryan & Valerie Wiens started asking if there could be an easier way to put on and take off shoes.  Their three boys were their inspiration.  They noticed that even velcro shoes took a long time for them to put on.  And the cute shoes with laces they bought for their kids just never got worn.  So they went about engineering a solution that involved magnets.  Working with engineers at a high-tech magnetics engineering company in California, Zubits magnetic shoe closures were born.  But as they developed Zubits closures and saw how convenient they were, they realized that everyone could use an easier way to get in and out of shoes… kids, adults, and the elderly.  The friends and family they gave prototypes to loved them.   So in 2014, Zubits magnetic closures were launched as a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter to help raise money for the first manufacturing and production.  The response was overwhelming.  7,200 individual backers from all over the world pledged their support for Zubits® in one month and made Zubits® a reality!
