Please note this is a Crowdfunding Hunt. While Grouphunt does not guarantee the promises as advertised by the creator, what we promise is to redistribute the goods to you as soon as we receive them, similar to if you placed the pledge on your own.
 

We love Zubits at Grouphunt and have organized group pledges for their very first crowdfunding campaign. Now they're back with new colors and new lace holders for even easier micro-adjustments and installation, patents pending! 

There are 12 colours and 3 sizes to choose from. 

Top Row (Left to Right): Black, Grey, White, Brown, Navy Blue, Pink. 

Bottom Row (Left to Right): Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Light Blue, Purple. 

After the campaign ends, you will be sent a survey asking you to choose your preferred size and color for each pair of Zubits closures you purchased.  The survey will explain the size choices thoroughly to help you decide.

For those new to Zubits

Zubits magnetic lacing solution is back with new colors and new lace holders for even easier micro-adjustments and installation. (patents pending)

Zubits® make your shoes insanely easy. Just imagine...

  • Slip into wide open shoes as if there were no laces at all. 
  • Never tie laces again. Close with a simple magnetic click.
  • Remove your shoes hands-free.
  • No more tying, knots, double knots, or laces coming undone.
  • No more ugly floppy bows. Just a clean looking shoe.
  • Magnetically pair up your shoes and organize them in new places.

 

Zubits high-tech magnets are incredibly strong.  Really, you won't believe it.  They can hold up to 16lbs of force and stay secure for running, parkour, going to the gym, or playing recreational sports. Thanks to Bay Area Movement (parkour)!

Don't be fooled by fake/copycat magnetic shoe closures that are too weak to work.

Yes, others have already tried to copy our great idea but fake magnetic shoe closures are of the poorest quality and don't work. Fakes look similar on the outside but split them apart and you will see exposed weak disc magnets that aren't strong enough for a child to use! The exposed magnets will also fall out, will scratch and chip, will corrode when wet, and don't include lace securing clips. They simply don't work! Zubits "magnetic array" technology makes our magnets more than twice as strong... which is the only way magnetic shoe closures can work.

Summary

People have been raving about Zubits magnetic lacing solution since we first created them four years ago. Now we are offering them on Indiegogo for the best prices anywhere. 

We invented magnetic shoe closures out of our garage in California. Some Chinese knockoffs have tried to copy what we do, but their quality and strength are so poor that they are useless to use.  They are just not strong enough to actually work.

We've had so many positive reviews and supportive feedback from people of all walks of life. From runners, kids, elders, hikers, triathletes, adults, arthritis sufferers, gadget fans, gym goers, people with autism, occupational therapists, cross-fit buffs, moms, and everyone in between, they've told us how much they love their Zubits closures.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How can Zubits closures be easy to step out of, but stay on securely when I run?
    1. The force when you step on your heel with your opposite foot is very strong. So the Zubits magnets will separate when you do this. Consider that even with your regular shoelaces double-knotted, you can still step on your heel and squeeze out of your shoes because this action generates a lot of force. People do it all the time. But when you run, your shoes still stay on. When you run, the shoelaces are mostly lifting the weight of your shoe. Zubits are engineered to be incredibly strong for their size. Zubits can hold your shoe secure while running and jumping, but they will split open when you step on your heel because the forces are much greater.
  2. Will the magnets lose their strength?
    1. No. Not unless you find a way to heat them over 176° fahrenheit. Neodymium magnets don’t lose their magnetism over time or from other magnets (ceramic refrigerator magnets can). The magnets are enclosed in plastic and protected from corrosion and elements.
  3. Will Zubits work on any type of shoes?
    1. Zubits work on nearly any shoes in which you would normally tie the laces. They don’t work with velcro shoes because there are no laces. Zubits work great on boots. There is a little challenge on boots with speed laces (no holes up top) but there are work-around to make them work. Hard sole shoes like soccer or baseball shoes can also cause the Zubits closures to pop open from time to time. Please choose size #3 Zubits for the most secure hold.
  4. Do Zubits magnets hold securely?
    1. Running, going to the gym, riding a bike, playing at the playground, and most recreational sports activities won’t be a problem for most users of Zubits. Zubits have been designed to be much stronger than normal neodymium magnets alone. They are designed to hold your shoe securely during use, while still being easy enough to pop off when your done. Therefore, Zubits are offered in different sizes to reach a balance between secure use and easy release. So if you ever have concerns about performance, we recommend you choose the next stronger size Zubits than would normally be recommended for you. The stronger size magnets are not that much harder to pop off. My large male friends have used Zubits for running and the gym with no problems. Zubits are designed for casual shoes and recreational sports, so there are some high-level sports in which Zubits could separate under extreme movement or by larger individuals. If high performance is of great importance, again, choose the size #3 Zubits or if you are a large individual, consider not purchasing Zubits for that activity. The variables that affect Zubits are heavy individuals, extreme movements or flexing, and particularly stiff soled shoes. Zubits are usually not recommended for hard-sole athletic cleats used for soccer match play, High School football, or organized sports. When my 6’5” 235lb friend made hard running cuts on grass with his stiff soccer cleats, the Zubits popped open about 5% of the time. So this is why we can’t say they work on all people and all shoes all the time. In any situation, loosening the laces just a little greatly helps prevent them from splitting during activity.
  5. Will I come home with nails stuck to my shoes?
    1. No. Zubits closures have been specifically designed to greatly reduce any external magnetism emitting from the plastic casing of the Zubits. Nearly all the magnetism is directed toward the closing face of the magnet. It is difficult to stick even a small screw to the side of a Zubit. We have just never seen this be a problem in actual use. And you won't come home with nails stuck to your shoe. Of course, if you separate the magnets, metal will certainly stick to the face of the magnet, but it’s no problem to slide something off. In the video, when we hang the shoes to a metal object, this is being done by the face of the magnets, not with the Zubits closed.
  6. Can Zubits pinch fingers?
    1. Zubits rarely pinch fingers in normal use, but a pinched finger is possible and can sometimes cause some pain. People need to grab the outside of the magnets to pull them together. Thus users rarely place their fingers where the magnets join. Putting a child’s whole finger between even the strongest adult size magnets only “holds” a finger with no discomfort. That being said, a child can play with the Zubits and it can be possible to get the side of a finger pinched. We recommend that parents do the installation. When our own children play with our the magnets and get pinched (we have had many laying around the house), they are more startled than hurt and they continue playing with the magnets anyways ignoring the discomfort. Adult fingers are generally too thick and tough for much pinching to occur.

    Hi there! Well spotted(: The previous run was a crowdfunding hunt, where makers try to ascertain demand for a product, and at the same time raise enough funds to fuel production. As a reward for being early backers, makers often provide their products at a discounted price as gratitude towards the risk backers take to fund their ideas. After their initial crowdfunding campaign, Zubits has also increased their price to match the market - this practice is common amongst many project creators. When we hunt for a product post-crowdfunding, the prices we're able to procure also naturally increase. However if you compare it to checking out on the website on your own, you'll see that we still provide group value. Hope that helps and thanks for checking in! (:
