Making Life Easier One Shoe at a Time with Xpand

*We received the following product free in exchange of our honest review.

When you have a big family, there is a LOT to juggle! There is no extra time, so any second saved is precious. I'm always looking for ways to save time (and energy), so I was thrilled to discover a time-saving product - Xpand!  

With Xpand, you never have to tie your shoes again! I love the concept behind this product, especially for Liam. We love them so much that we're replacing ALL of our laces with Xpand laces!

Putting on shoes is so much easier these days. It truly does save me time, and is much less stressful! And if you have little kids or a child who has extra needs, Xpand is a must have!

WHO is Xpand?

Xpand began in 2015 when the creator, Chuck Harris, got West Nile Virus, which caused his feet to swell throughout the day. Tying his shoes was painful, so he tried to figure out how laces could be better. He soon came up with a great idea. He figured out a way to tie shoes using two elastic laces and an anchor mechanism to secure the laces in place. With those laces, shoes didn't have to be tied ever again! The idea raised over 1 million dollars on crowdfunding sites, and has helped so many people since Xpand went on the market!

My Thoughts on Xpand

We love our Xpand Original No-Tie Shoelaces! I got them in black, white, and glow in the dark for Liam, and replaced the laces on his most used tie shoes. I consulted the directions on their website, and it was very easy to do. 

As a parent to a child who has extra needs, I appreciate these shoelaces so much! Putting on Liam's lace-up shoes was a nightmare before we were introduced to Xpand. Liam didn't really help me put on his shoes, so I had to wrestle them onto his feet, then beg him to stay still long enough for me to tie his shoes. I usually ended up rushing out the door with my heart pounding, because it stressed me out and gave me an early morning workout. I started to avoid buying shoes with laces for him, even if I liked the style. Although Liam is older and more cooperative now, using these laces was truly life-changing!

We loved them so much, that we got more, and replaced the laces in our favorite shoes, too! It just adds a fun, simplifying element to our favorite shoes. It really is the little things in life! And if you're wondering, Liam has been using them since September, and spends a ton of time outdoors, and the laces are still working perfectly!
