These are Stan Smith style shoes from Adidas. Note that they are available with either traditional laces and with Velcro straps. They are a favorite of the esteemed Sifu Nick Gudge, a Chen Zhenglei student who teaches in Ireland. I am not altogether clear on about what percentage of autistics can tie their own shoes, let alone with consistency and reliability (not too loose and not too tight). Not do I have anything to say yet about how well or poorly the students like the straps.
