Remember Kaepas? Tom Adams, the founder of the company which made the white tennis shoes (sometimes with the removable, colorful triangular pieces) is launching Fit2 Shoes, a San Antonio-based brand that will attempt to make tying shoes a thing of the past. With a patent-pending One-Pull Fastening System, the debut collection includes two women's athletic styles, retails from $80 to $90 and is slated to arrive in July in stores. [WWD]
