Thanks for your interest in Zackaroos!

We've sold a lot of laces and charms over the years and had our share of the media spotlight, but the best part has been the letters from parents and spouses of people with disabilities or injuries who have written to tell us about how Zackaroos helped to make someone more independent and their life a little easier. Thank you!

We have recently scaled back our website to offer laces only, and decided to focus our efforts in other areas of improving people's lives:

Shannon has started nudge studio (  an affordable interior design and color consultation business that empowers people to make changes in their homes.
Zack  is a partner in Monkey Island Inc., ( a company that helps create thriving local economies and strong communities. Its offerings include technology and social media consulting, and hyperlocal community sites (real local commerce) and (the leading hyperlocal Twitter directory).
We have appreciated the support of all the Zackaroos fans over the years. Please check out our new ventures!
Zackaroos replace laces to make any shoe with eyelets a slip-on. They look just like laces, but can be easily customized with beads, charms, and other accessories. They're easy to use, easy to change, and adjustable to fit any size shoe.
Zackaroos give kids greater independence and save precious time for parents, teachers, and care givers. Zackaroos are great for kids with developmental disabilities who aren't able to tie, but don't want to be limited to Velcro styles.

We still have a limited inventory of white and black laces, so please send an e-mail to zsteven @ if you're interested in ordering. They are $2.99 a package, with $3 for S&H.
