Do you ever wish it were socially acceptable to wear Velcro shoes as a non-elderly adult?

Velcro is a noisy and bad solution to a real problem. For real though, it's kind of nuts that we don't have a more efficient alternative for fastening footwear than traditional laces.

High top shoes look dope as hell but every time I think about having to lace up my Converse CDG's to fit my ogre flat feet I'm tempted to just say fuck it:

these are the shoes i have but in a different colour. i don't need to bother with the laces since they just zip up the back and the strap goes around. they are so good.

Just wear something that slips on easily and doesn’t have laces or Velcro. That’s what I do.

But really, who cares? I have people asking me why I wear slippers everywhere all the time.

What is going on here, I hate laces and will rock laceless in almost any form. I await someone to judge me in public and I will power walk circles around them. Threat or Menace?

Literally no one cares, and anyone who does care is not someone whose opinion you should take seriously. Wear what you want to wear.

I've been wearing leather high tops with zippers for a few years now. Tying laces for high tops is a pain.

I'd wear velcro if I ever saw one that I liked.

I can't assert my adulthood status by wearing shoes that might give the impression that I didn't learn how to tie my laces.

You do you, man. Who cares what others think?They won't exactly pat you on the head or give you money if you don't wear velcros.

Wearing Velcro shoes is several steps above Crocs or sandals with socks, and plenty of adults wear that trash.

I just tie my shoelaces just loose enough that I can slip my shoes on and off without tying and untying, while still staying firmly on my feet.

I think loafers are the adult version of what you're looking for. They just slip on with no fuss or judgement.

😆 WTF, those are like NB Crocs
They’re official dad shoes. That’s what my wife calls them. Shit is GOAT for airport security. I laughed at all those suckers tying their shoes after getting scanned. I was out that mofo in record time.

With my jeans on they look like regular kicks. If I’m working from home and go out during my lunch break, thems the shits I wear. It’s like wiping my feet with silk I love it.

Hey! I only wear Crocs when washing my truck or doing yard work. lol
That makes sense though. I know someone that has Post Malone Crocs they paid about $100 for. That raised some questions. Mainly "why," "have you ever seen Post Malone," and "does he look like someone you should take style advice from to you?"

I’m surprised boa dials haven’t made it to street and casual wear. It’s practically the standard for snowboard boots and cycling shoes.
They’re way faster and easier than laces and cleans up the aesthetics too.

People just trying to get through life. Nobody is looking at and judging your shoes. Wear what you want.
