"Greepers give children the independence of wearing shoes with laces without the difficulty of them becoming untied. They also provide better support than Velcro or elastic laces as they utilise traditional nylon laces and support the feet properly, unlike elastic. They have the backing of occupational therapists and physiotherapists and are used by athletes to aid their performance rather than elastic alternatives".
