Do you always untie our shoelaces everyday?

I go through my shoe racks and tie and untie each and every day, every pair of shoes I own, even the monks.

Allow me to sing the praises of velcro shoes.

why all the trouble? why not just keep it tied and slip in and out of the shoes?

My nephew does that. He's a 14 yr old skateboarder.

I am not your valet,
nor are you royal.
Please don't mix first and second person.

Yes, I use a shoe horn
and tie my shoes
every day that I don't wear loafers.
I untie them when I take them off.
I polish them by the light of the fire.

I tie mine multiple times a day. Sometimes I even loosen them and retie them just to be sure. The procedure is done in about 20-30 seconds. When I saw the title of this thread I thought the topic was lacing the shoe lace everyday.

you people are serious.

this is the whole reason i wear monk traps. always slip in and out.

when i'm in a hurry in the morning, got no time to patiently tie up laces.

I don't even have time to slip 'em on and off, I just sleep in them. This way I'm ALWAYS ready.

If you can slide your shoes off without undoing/untying them .. I can't see how they could possibly be the right size.

The only shoes I don't untie is my converse Chuck Taylor's I wear when slumming around. Every other shoe I'd have to rip apart to get off without untying them.

i use a shoe horn but i can't justify the trouble still.

what is the point? does it maintain the shoes better?
