Good analogy. And in both instances, I seem to like the 'fast and furious' way to do things. (I absolutely HATE buttons in pants.) So, it's only right that I like Velcro shoes more.

it's a Puma slip-on, but has a velcro strap [not sure what it's function is though]


this one is ok too
i have those puma ones, in the boot form. its a fake strap, its inspired by a rubber band or something, just looks like velcro, or duct tape, depends who you ask.

True story... I didn't learn how to tie my shoes until I was about 13. What was I wearing for a good portion of my life? Velcro shoes. The ease of slipping on Vans-style slip-on sneakers could probably trigger a return of velcro shoes. Most people are more like, "they are soooo '90s." Yeah, like leggings under skirts is the best thing since sliced bread. I'm more used to two straps rather than these three-strap velcro sneakers. Some would probably argue that the shoes aren't real stylish and clean even if you're wearing some big jeans covering the velcro straps.

I'm not as opposed to velcro straps because I've worn them myself. I'm sure fashion designers and media types will find any sort of way to make the '90s as overrated as the '80s, especially the early 1990s. So I wouldn't be surprised to see some fashion travesties of justice unfold along with velcro shoes.

I think Vans actually started this a little over a year or so ago. I remember them releasing the Velcro Vans to the public, which were a design used for the California prison system for high risk prisoners. You can't kill someone or yourself with Velcro right?

Velcro is only for those who are under 5 and over 80.
