I noticed last night that I don't have very many pairs of shoes with shoestrings. Well, I do, but only because I have so many pairs of shoes. I only have a couple of pairs that I sometimes wear that have strings.
Both the pairs of sneakers that I often wear are shoestring-less. This makes me happy.
Shoestrings are annoying. You have to bend over. You have to use finger muscles. You have to remember what order to use the strings in!
Therefore, I've decided to break free the world of strings!
From now on, I'm not buying any shoes that require me to tie strings together!
The only shoes with strings that I might occasionally wear are these:
But only occasionally, since they are made for flat-footed people and I have arches.
