To solve the problem of shoelaces coming loose and the inconvenience of re-tying them, the Rolling Eight Shoestring Collector is designed. With this collector, one does not actually need to tie the shoelaces. Instead, the shoelaces are rolled around the collectors in a double loop (in the shape of the character ‘8’) and the tip is secured by putting it through the groove.
Rolling Eight Shoestring Collector has a curvilinear shape, which can be suitable for any kind of shoes. The groove also has a special design that ensures shoelaces will not be loosened easily.
