One of the best impromptu tricks of all time, now better than ever.
“Looking for a cool impromptu visual effect you can perform anywhere anytime? Look no further, ‘Linking Laces’ by Paul Harris is made for you!” – Boris Wild
“A modern classic…. starts clean.. end clean… leaving an impossible object at your spectator’s feet to remember… only problem… doesn’t work with flip flops” – JB Dumas
“Linking Laces is a great effect to have in your repertoire because it’s a perfect impromptu trick to perform in casual social environments. The construction is brilliant and it leaves the spectator with an impossible object on their foot!” – Karl Koppertop
“This is slick! There are not a lot of strong, COMPLETELY impromptu things you can do with a spectator’s shoes but this is REALLY sweet. Can’t wait to add this to my skill set.” – Geoff Williams
“Paul Harris has created some of the greatest magic we’ll ever see. Linking Laces is no exception! After you learn this completely impromptu miracle, you’ll be performing this trick all the time. Nick Locapo does a great job of teaching this, and you’ll be able to practice along with him. It’s time to arm yourself with a trick that you can perform anytime, anywhere!” – Jesse Feinberg
Linking Laces is one of the greatest impromptu effects in all of magic. This simple effect takes the classic solid through solid effect and allows you to leave your spectator with proof of a miracle.
Here’s what happens:
With no gimmicks, the magician gently massages the loops of a spectator’s shoelaces and they visually link together. The laces must be untied to come apart. The spectator’s shoes are re-tied and the laces link again, this time in their hands. You can then leave the spectator with their shoelaces linked together ending completely clean. This stunning effect allows you to create an impossible object with something that belongs to the spectator. It’s that strong.
In addition to detailed video instruction of this modern classic, you also learn a non-gimmicked version of the Self-Tying Shoelace.
