Are you looking for an easy way for your child to put their tap shoes on by themselves? The Elastic Tap Ties may be your best solution. They are the perfect style for the classic patent leather Mary Jane Style Tap Shoe. Just remove the existing laces (save them for your recital), pinch the rubberband like tie through both eyelets, then loop the bottom around the button and Viola! You have created a slip on tap shoe. If they are too loose, just create a new knot. Includes one pair per package.
