LOL Velcro shoes make me think of old ladies. Which is funny, because I wear black puma velcros.

Ugh. Most velcro shoes I hate, but that's because I'm generally not fond of velcro on clothing.
The Raf Simons and Dior Homme look great, but other wise....ick.

Slip-ons, however.... Gotta love 'em!

Anyways, I'm not sure I can see this taking off. First off, people are used to a "good" sneaker being laced. Plus, I think that on a sneaker the velcro ends up looking out of place and clunky most of the time. And you can't change the color of them.

I just don't like it.

For it to work, it would have to be very subtle on the shoe. But also, it still has that stigma to deal with. I mean...velcro?

You'd be surprised how many teenagers/young men around London have these simple, often white Velcro shoes. It's not 'everywhere you look' yet but it's definitely getting there. I'm actually getting so used to them that I've been thinking of getting a pair when I get back to Canada, although I'm not sure how easy they'll be to find.

I'm starting to really like them, strangely enough...

I actually bought some addidas velcro shoes like 2-3 years ago....it was pretty popular around that time. This are the ones I bought:

the thing about velcro and women's footwear, is that it's much harder to pull off than say for a man to do so. plus velcro on women's shoes are pretty much only seen on sports footwear anyways.

Yea, I'm a 45 too (hoping anyway, as I'm an 11 in cons and 12 in most other shoes). Ima go try some on this weekend hopefully. Really want the all black velcro joints.

For me, the idea of velcro vs laces on shoes is like comparing zips to buttons on clothes - in both cases, the first is fast and furious, while the latter is the classic, old-fashioned way to do things.

I find laces look very untidy - I have to tuck mine away inside the shoe, as I can't abide the 'string' hanging - and they have a tendency to come undone while you're walking down the street, forcing you to pull some stupid crouching pose in front of others while you sort yourself out.
