Zubits® magnetic shoe closures make putting shoes on and taking them off insanely easy. No tying, no knots, no laces coming undone. (patents pending)

Just lace Zubits magnets onto your own shoelaces. When separated, you can easily slip into a wide open shoe.  Close the magnets with a click and go for a run or play sports. Quickly take your shoes off hands-free by stepping on your heel to pop out.  Buy Zubits closures once and re-use them on all your new shoes! The magnets never lose strength so you never have to tie laces again.

The Zubits Video

Start with your own shoes - lace Zubits closures through your own shoelaces - and presto - your shoes just got insanely easy. Zubits are patent pending magnetic "bits" that make your shoes fast and easy to put on and take off. No tying, no squeezing, no knots, no floppy bows, no coming undone. When the Zubits magnets are split open you have a huge opening to easily slip into your shoes.  Then just pull the magnets together and you're done.  When you want to take your shoes off, just step on your heel and pop out hands-free. magnetic shoelaces magnetic shoelaces zoobits

In my world, there are several types of optimization and in the past months I have been focusing on my tri- and duathlon competitions. Before I ordered Zubits I thought about what benefits they could provide.  The first optimization is located in my philosophy about "a saved second is an earned second", which is a direct time-optimization.
