A couple of weeks ago Isaac Bergman shared his running experiences with Zubits closures in New York's Coney Island. Now Isaac says his son is sporting a new blue pair of Zubits closures and "he loves them". So does Isaac's youngest son who now wants to know when his Zubits are showing up. Back to school present anyone? Zubits closures are keeping the Bergman's on the run in NY.
Zubits actually work really well for hiking shoes and boots. In our experiences camping and hiking, we put on and remove our shoes all the time. Going into and out of tents, crossing streams etc means you want to get into and out of your shoes without dealing with the laces and knots. Plus your laces don’t flop around catching stickers or those poky nettles, and in cold climates, you don't have to remove your gloves to lace or unlace your shoes. Hiking and camping win! #zubits #hiking #merrell

Isaac Bergman has run over 150 miles with his Zubits magnetic closures. In Brooklyn NY, this means running mostly on pavement except for when Isaac jogs down the famed Coney Island Boardwalk - flashing his white Zubits closures and Asics. After an initial concern about them opening up, stranding him miles from home, Isaac now confidently runs in Zubits a few times a week for 5 to 6 miles a pop. He tells us they’ve taken him over 150 miles without incidence. There’s another pair of Blue Zubits closures on their way for Isaac’s 9 year old son, who we hear will be running down the boardwalk with dad for the next pic. #zubits #asics #gadgets
Elly Tucker teaches a dance class in Charlottesville VA called BeMoved. She says it’s a combination of jazz dance, yoga and t’ai chi. Wow! Elly also takes a ’Step’ class using a different pair of cross trainer shoes. As you can imagine, these are pretty high powered classes in terms of movement and flexibility. Elly was an early Kickstarter backer and after an initial hesitation in putting Zubits closures on her shoes thinking “oh, too complicated” she installed them and immediately found they “were a snap”.
She also tells us: “I get a lot of comments about them at the gym and dance class. The magnets work GREAT. They’re strong and I never worry about them coming apart while I am dancing or moving. I choose not to step out of them. I actually like my ritual of sitting down, twisting them apart and then letting the strong magnet catch the one of the other shoe. Snap! What a satisfying sound. I love them! A lot!!”
Elly says her students are always tying and re-tying their laces while she snaps into her shoes and gets dancing. She’s now getting a lot of comments and questions from others in the studio about Zubits magnetic closures and wonders to us; “Who wouldn’t want these?”
We've been so encouraged by people sharing their Zubits shoe closures stories with us. We've been told that the marketing promise of easing the putting on and taking off of shoes each day, in a stylish and simple way has exceeded their expectations. This makes us pretty happy as our goal has been to simplify and we hope, beautify peoples lives (and their shoes) with Zubits Closures.
