Tying your shoes

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

On several occasions over the past few years I have been fascinated by the work of Ian Fieggen on his amazingly comprehensive shoelace site. A couple of weeks ago, I was wasting time…er…BROWsing through the site and came across a page Ian has written about the “wrong way to tie shoelaces.”

Now, tying shoelaces isn’t something I’ve really thought about for a long time. It only took a couple of minutes, however, to realize that all of the signs of an unsecure slip knot were exhibited by my hastily tied laces. Now, I’m not going to pretend that this caused me any large degree of angst, but I determined to learn the proper way to tie a knot and incorporate it. Piece of cake, right?

It boggles my mind how hard it is to UNlearn something as deeply ingrained as shoelace tying. I’m working on it, though, in part because it is so difficult. How do you tie your shoes?
