are thin cords fitted to
to prevent the shoe from slipping off by accident. The shoelace
can be untied and loosened, permitting the shoe to open
wide to admit the wearer's foot; it can then be tightened
and knotted. Shoelaces did not become widely popular until
the 20th century, previously shoes were slip-on, buckled
or buttoned. Buttoned shoes used a special tool, a button
hook, to close the buttons but this was slow and difficult.
laces are elasticized laces coiled into a tight helix. The
twirly laces can simply be pulled tight . When made for
children, they come in a large variety of colours and textures.

many shoelace accessories. There are hooks to help lace
shoelaces tightly. They are especially useful for skates
where tight lacing is important. Shoelace covers protect
the laces, especially in wrestling. Shoelace charms are
decorative, as are coloured shoelaces. Some dress codes
(e.g. high schools) will specifically exclude colour laces
and charms. Lacelocks hold laces together, eliminating the
need for tying. Laces can be coated to increase friction
to help laces stay tied.
shoes and standard shoelaces, a process patent was granted
for lacing in a double-helix pattern "resulting in
reduced friction and faster and easier tightening and loosening".
Another process patent was issued for an alternative way
of tying shoelaces
Shoelaces can be tied in
an almost infinite number of ways. The most
common bow, however, is a variant on two
half knots tied one on top of the other.
A loop is used in the second knot, rather
than the simple end of the string, in order
to allow for quick untying.
A problem that arises is that two half knots
can be tied together in two different ways
(ignoring symmetrical configurations). One
addition of a half knot to a half knot forms
a square or
reef knot, an altogether uninspiring
knot for the knot aficionado, but a fairly
effective one for the purpose of tying shoelaces.
While a fairly insecure knot, it functions
best when laid flat against a surface as
it is on a shoe. The second combination
of half knot to half knot gives a
granny knot, a knot not good for much
at all. It is terribly insecure, and most
people who use it will find themselves retying
their shoelaces many times a day.
Much discussion has appeared on shoelace
tying websites discussing this issue and
why it appears that the large majority of
people (75% according to one website) are
using the granny knot. Some have suggested
that it may have to do with children watching
their parents and mirroring them, but a
total mirroring would produce, if the parent
were tying a square knot, a mirror image
square knot. A simpler explanation is that
if one ties shoelaces first by tying a half
knot and then by forming two loops and tying
another (as opposed to some speedier technique),
and if one consistently puts one hand over
the other (left over right or right over
left) one gets a granny knot. A square knot
is the less intuitive knot and requires
switching the top hand. First left over
right and then right over left, or first
right over left and then left over right.
You can generally tell if you have produced
the square or granny knot by the direction
in which the loops lie. If they lie side
to side, you have probably made a square
knot. If they lie front to back, you have
probably made a granny knot and should teach
yourself the other.
lace tying techniques.
Informal experiments seem to show that the
need for retying shoelaces will drop dramatically
with the square knot.
Please don't run with your shoe laces untied.
