Kanye recently teased images of the YEEZY D Rose, one of recent memory's most unorthodox designs. The conceptual shoe features a ribbed upper with no laces in sight. Despite the forward-thinking concept of the shoe, we're on the fence about the style designed in collaboration with legendary hooper Derrick Rose. While we work through our complex feelings about the YEEZY D Rose, we got to thinking about the back catalog of laceless sneakers and who has done it better than 'Ye.

Laceless sneakers are nothing new. Models such as the Vans Slip-On have woven themselves into the very fabric of sneaker culture — so much so that the model isn’t given a second look, it’s just another sneaker that anyone can wear. And just like the Slip-On, there are countless models that are either completely laceless or constructed in a way that the laces are superfluous.

Laceless sneakers are easy to slip on and off, making them the perfect options for sneakerheads that are constantly on-the-go and in and out of the house. Laceless sneakers are perfect for those wanting to save time or effort, so we’ve rounded up some of the best available to buy right now.
