Thread: Lace 'em up!

  1. #1

    Default Lace 'em up!

    How are your shoes laced? My zapatos chicagos are laced with the straight bar, but my exercise shoes are the typical criss-cross. I once had one-handed laced shoes.

    I'm trying to re-learn the one-handed method, so I googled and found this amazing site. Ian's Shoelace Site - Introduction

    Flip flops and boots don't require laces! And that's pretty much all I wear.

    I used to have sneakers that had velcro straps on them though. They were awesome.

    I use a criss-cross lace for my shoes but i dont actually tie them up properly with the loops, I just make a tight knot.

    I make a loop, round, through and pull. Then take the two loops that have been created and make a normal knot with them.

    I criss-cross my laces, but instead of tying them near the ankle, I reverse them to tie at the toe. It's actually kind of impressive how many people notice them...xD

    I used to tie my laces behind the tongue of my shoe, so I can tuck them in. But now I have new shoes that don't work like that

    They see me rolling. They hating, patrolling.
    Trying to catch me riding dirty.

    My checkered/striped Vans are above petty wastes of time like laces. I slip them on and I'm ready to go.

    Double helix lacing.
    You hold my heart in your manly hands I wanna feel the throb of your handsome gland. I wanna hold you tight like a newborn kitten, against my flesh like a cashmere mitten. Tickly tick, I'm makin' skin bump heaven and all the way down it's lookin' cleanly shaven. Prickety pricks, it's stubble on stubble I better slow down or I'm in real trouble. Want you, touch you, feel you, taste you! Knick knack whacky whack 'till I see the man stew. spin you around let me see that hole! I'm a tunnelin' in a like a short hair mole. Once I'm inside I'm gonna leave a trace, half in there and half on that face! One finger, two finger, there fingers gone! Mano a mano I love you John!

    Bunny ears? Like Momiji, I just slip them on and don't bother tying and untying them everytime.

    I can't stand not tying my shoelaces. I hate when my boots are loose. Criss-cross them.

    Unless I wear my flops. Which I usually do. B]
    Lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky me again! I hardly knew I should use me feet again!

    What do you have to say for yourself?

    in sixth grade, the style was to run the laces from the bottom of the tongue all the way up and t hen tie it up there. Our basketball coach hated this and told us to lacethem normally, and then our star player turned her ankle and he was vindicated.

    I don't wwear many shoes I have to lace, but my tennis shoes are just laced like usual
