The shoelaces of my tennis shoes come untied all of the time. When just walking around I will look down and wham one of them will be untied. I have a pair of dress shoes, same problem. My office mate’s shoelaces also have the same problem. I have other friends who have shoelace problems. I don’t remember this happening as much when I was a child (or at least older than 5 yrs old).
My tongue-tied question is why are they doing this? Have we lost the technology to build a good shoelace? Is this a plot by the evil Velcro™ empire to get a foothold in the industry? Is there a cure for this problem? Am I destined to fall flat on my face for the rest of my life?
