Shoelaces with two colors help kids learn to tie shoes while being fashionable

As a mom of 3 I had my share of challenges. My eldest was having a hard time learning to tie his shoes. He couldn't "see" where this loop went over that loop or this bunny ear went around the other one.

I figured there had to be a better way. After months and months of trial and error, I figured out how to make bi-colored shoelaces. With 2 different colors on one lace, it was easier for my son to "see" the left from the right side, or the red bunny loop from the blue bunny loop. Many months more of experimenting and then learning how to start a business...Winans Imaginative was born with its first product...Teaching Tyes.

We then expanded into spirit wear. Since we already were making 2 colors of your choice, why not support your high school, college or professional team by wearing their colors on your shoes? Team Tyes were born!

Then my daughter wanted a pair to match her shoes, then to match her soccer uniform. We figured "why not" and Trendy Tyes were started.

Finally, for the wee ones, the Teeny Tyes. These make great baby shower gifts or "new parents" gifts. They are baby blue or pink shoelaces. We sell the crib shoe with the Tye in it or if you have a crib shoe, we can sell just the Tye.
