  1. There are times when buying shoelace shoes is the only option available. My feet are long and narrow (14A shoe size in American sizing system) so getting something other than laced shoes is hard. I prefer loafer style shoes but until recently, on the internet, finding such was almost impossible. And yet, I can understand the companies not wanting to provide much in the way of options, most people want laced shoes because they have been conditioned to want them. Thus, selling something else is catering to a small portion of the customer base and not economic. It would be nice if the shoes available could be repaired by replacing the soles / heels but that is another disappearing part of the shoe scene, at least at my end of the scale.

  2. Reblogged this on Forget the Viagra, Pass Me a Carrot and commented:
    I loved this post – men have faced the shoelace dilemma for what is now revealed over 200 years. I had lace ups at school and hated them – however, here in Spain I do wear different coloured plimsoles all summer. Then I realised that I am paranoid about the laces and double knot them in case they come loose. However, it is not the falling over that I am concerned about but the bending over in public to retie them. Great post and blog – thanks

  3. May shoelaces be the worst problem we ever face. Used to be that a child’s ability to tie his shoes was a badge hard earned. Still, I laughed at your article and enjoyed it. It has never occured to me to wash my hands after tying a shoelace. How did I manage to live to be 70? lol, hugs, pat

  4. I’ve seen many problems caused by shoelaces in the gym — primarily, accidents. What gives with extra long laces? Thought provoking tid bit. Love the blog. Thanks.

  5. It’s worth noting that Einstein was actually an autistic genius – very smart, but had a hard time with certain simple things that most of us would take for granted. Legend has it that he also sometimes forgot to do things like…tucking his genitals into his pants.
