Laces are overrated. For whatever reason the sneaker industry has kept the technology around since 3300 BC when in reality, shoes like the legendary adidas TMac 4 and its HUG system showed us that there’s life after the hassle-prone outdated lacing system. Even Jordan Brand tried to disguise shoelaces in the Air Jordan XX8 in a transitional move to help usher us all into the modern age. But we weren’t ready. Vans is the latest to show us a life post-lace tying with this new Vans Old Skool Zip LX collection. Sure, the laces are still there as to not shock traditionalists, but the real move is just unzipping the side-panel. They aren’t the Nike Mags, but you won’t ever have to waste the precious five seconds of tying your shoes ever again. Available in four colorways in a premium leather, you can grab this new take on the Vans Old Skool today from DQM.
