Okay… I’m one of those terrible people who typically wears one pair of shoes at a time. Okay… more like 3… everyday shoes, gym shoes/sneakers, and barn boots. I’m no shoe addict. Anyway, I have a pair of LL Bean Walking shoes (they look something like this… but are last year or the year before’s model.) I’ve been wearing them for quite a while. I always double knot the laces.
Never had a problem with them coming untied.
Nathaniel doesn’t mess with them.
Lately, they come untied at least twice if not 4 or 5 times a day. Last night they came untied at my break and lunch. I have put different insoles in them- but changing insoles has never made a difference before.
I just smile and re-tie them. I kid around that John’s messing with me. Don’t know that I believe it. I’d hope that if he was going to mess with me he’d pick a different way. But it sounds good and I like to think that he’s still with me and watching over me. Of course, he’d probably be so bored if he followed me around everywhere that he would resort to messing with shoelaces…
