... with no laces
For DS, size 8.5 maybe 9
Do they exist with velcro/elastic/zip?

I buy converse for DD and replace the laces with these.

Geillis but that's genius!! I didn't even know such a product existed!!shock

I replace the laces with elastic. I can't work out what that product does. I get my elastic from Wilko £1.49

DS size 9 adult by the way, he's 12. Will the elastic be supportive enough?

They pretty much are elastic WowOoo, they have little hooky bits at each end that go in behind the shoe eyelets to keep them in place. DD loves that they come in different colours.

My friend's teen wears them and gets on fine with them OP.
