Why is it that on the rare occasions I go to buy new shoelaces, every time the size recomended on the chart on the back of the package is abysmally too small?
There’s always a little chart saying how long a pair to buy for different number of holes to be threaded through. If you do what they say you get home and find you have maybe on each side an inch at most of shoelace sticking out the last hole ; nowhere near enough to tie. Then its back to the store to buy a second package, and of course you can’t really return the first one.
Is this some sort of scam by the shoe-lace barons to double sales?
From now on I measure one of the old ones and go by that.
