Does the Velcro on your shoe ever wear out before the rest of the shoe?

Asked by dookie (61points) June 5th, 2008

Are you ever stuck with perfectly good shoes that can’t be fastened? Is it possible to get worn-out Velcro replaced?

I never buy shoes with Velcro fasteners because I fear it will wear out prematurely. Is it possible to get shoes with the super-strong Velcro made of Teflon that they use on space shuttles?

skateboards always kill shoelaces doing tricks and all. i know some kids at the skatepark that use zip ties instead of velcro or laces.

oh thank you for your question! It just reminded me of something from back in the day that I hadnt thought about in years! Good times! good times!

To answer your question I haven’t had any Velcro shoes in…...well I don’t think I ever had any Velcro shoes in my life.

That depends, I personally wear shoes with laces, but i get shoes very often. (once every week)

I really like these Nikes’ I’ve bought a few already, because they’re white and velcro gets worn out. Nike Men’s Vandal Low

Are you sure the velcro is worn out?

When I would get these shoes for my kids, I would find that if they were not sticking well it was because little bits of stuff was caught up in the velcro.
