Check out everything about the new social networking app from Google.
It seems Google isn't done with social networks.
Much like Shoelace, it started out as invite-only and was used to help people meet up for live events and activities.
As for the name, Google says: "The whole premise of Shoelace is to tie people together based on their interests ... like two laces on a shoe".

It will also suggest events that you might be interested in joining.
Each day, we find the best things happening around you - from pick-up soccer to free comedy shows - so you don't have to.

As Android Police points out, Shoelace is rather similar to a previous Google attempt at an event organizer called Schemer. You can request an invite by filling up this Google form. "We also work hard to make sure that everything you see in Shoelace - from profiles to Loops - is aligned with our House Rules and community standards".
