We are making a version that has optional laces. You don't need to use them and they don't get in the way of slipping these on and off easier than before. Notice the hem is changed to make it more contemporary and to fit more people comfortably. The sole has the same great TPU Sole as on the other Minimal Shoes, however, this Shoe has padding that is contoured the same as the sole. It's built in and comfortable.
