Most of the brands have made some sneakers without laces but it’s never been in abundance. A sad thing actually as sneakers without strings are easy in use, comfortable and always stand out a bit.


Puma is probably the sport shoe brand that made the most effort in designing interesting sneakers without laces in a wide variety of designs. It has proven itself with the classic running shoe; the Puma OSU. A trainer that stands out from the crowd by its simple but elegant design. A trademark for those rare sport shoes designs that can stand the test of time.

Besides the Puma OSU running shoes Nike comes close in it’s innovative designs. Nike’s a giant in the sportswear industry as we well know. With the most amazing fashion sneaker designs. But when it comes to sport shoes without laces Nike still has to do some catching up.

Although the Nike Lunar Fly are definitely sport shoes to look into if you are hunting for sneakers without strings.

Other alternatives for Nike or Puma Sneakers without laces.

 Of course Nike and Puma are not the only brands who went for shoes with an alternative closure system. Skechers and Salomon for instance have found an alternative for the the problem of strings as well.

Salomon uses its quicklace system giving the all terrain running shoes a tight fit. As the last thing you want is to stumble over your shoelaces when you’re doing your round. And besides the practicality of the trail running shoes, they are really funky and available in many colours.

The Cyber London by Asics is a good alternative for the Lunarfly by Nike. Both have a big Velcro closure that seals the shoe and gives you the comfort of a personal sneaker fit.

It’s a well appraised sport shoe with 4.5 stars on Amazon and lots of user reviews.

The Adidas Performance Trainer is also an option. These trainers have the same grand gesture as the Nike shoes. In the end it all depends on personal taste.

That’s why it’s so great that you have such a huge choice of sneakers. In the end you definitely find something that represents who you are and what you feel comfortable with.

Special sneakers without laces design.

Furoshiki sneakers wrap shoes for comfort yoga One of the latest and most original sneaker designs is inspired by the Japanese art of wrapping, called Furoshiki. Furoshiki is an old tradition were the Japanese wrap up their cloth when going to a public bathing house.

This specific idea inspired sneaker designers of Vibram to design trainers that are wrapped around your feet. You don’t have to tie strings, zip or force you feet into small shoes. You simply wrap the material of the sneaker around your feet and adjust it like you see fit.

Some sneakers, like this Nike Aptare has the look of proper walking shoes. The running shoes with no strings attached have the design of an official shoe. Especially the black Aptare SE, this because of it’s  toggle bungee closure system. Which makes an perfect alternative for the classic shoe strings.

The Nike Aptare has a pull tab on the end of the heel to help you slip out your shoo easier. It also preserves the shoes better as every body has the tendency to remove one sneaker with the other by stepping on the back side. Not a good idea!

The shoes are made from textile and rubber which makes them perfect for vegans and vegetarians. As there is no leather or animal products used by the fabrication of the trainers.

The design of the Nike Aptare is based upon the classic Nike Free. This time however Nike eliminated the shoelaces to simplify the design. And in the end it worked the Nike Aptare are indeed minimalist running shoes with no strings.
