10 Slip-On Sneakers for When You Just Can’t Bother With Laces
No laces, no worries!
(SPOT.ph) We know, we know, you love sneakers—and even that might be an understatement. And we don’t blame you—comfy, rubber-sole, lace-up kicks are an obsession that can span all lifestyles, be integrated into all personal styles, and work for almost any occasion. But like all good things, you can’t reap the benefits without putting in a little work—in this case, we refer to the daily struggle of having to tie shoelaces. Have you ever been in the middle of a really busy, stressful day when all of a sudden you realize you need to pause for a second to tie your laces? All jokes aside, while lace-up sneakers are a staple, we know that some days, you could definitely do without having to double knot them every two seconds.
Here are 10 fuss-free, hassle-free, lace-free sneakers you can shop now:

Sperry’s signature Top-Sider boat shoes are a great pair to have in your collection. They can be used for both casual and dressy occasions thanks to their versatile leather exterior and distinguished stitching. The comfy inner lining, rubber sole, and moisture-wicking technology makes them great for everyday use—you can slip them on in seconds and still look like you put effort into choosing your OOTD.
