How do you tie your shoes? do you
1. Do you use the two loop system, and then make the knot using the two loops or

2.The one loop system, where you make one loop and use the other lace, to go around the first, and make the knot that way.

I use number 2, but now that I think about it, I'll try out number 1. It'll save me tons of time. :rolleyes:

For me, all depends on the length of the shoe laces. If long, 2-loop, otherwise, make one longer and use the loop on it, and the shorter one is the loopless :) .


In general though, once you tie your shoes once you don;t need to do it again, just slip on/pull off.

2 requires more memory than 1. A BAD thing.

Memory is cheap nowadays. Speed and performance is king.

considering the rather limited intelligence capabilities of the average shoelaces (and the shoelace-tiers, too). i stick to the one loop system. it gives me an extra second to do the stuff i hate doing :D

The one loop system, or 2 for that matter, requires both of your hands. The only thing I can think of that can be done while tieing your shoes....is swishing mouthwash around inside your mouth. You must be talented, or I must've missed something.

you all suck. I take a stick and tie a two half hitches around it.

no no no...if youre gonna do that, then just go ahead and do a bowline....or even a square lashing if you have to...

Or you can make an ice splice, or tie a larch's head around them. THEN you can make a square lashing. However, I would rather make a floor lashing, and tie three sticks together.

Or you could get the laceless shoes.

Two loop! I dont even know how to do the one loop one, but I've become a master of the ancient art of two loop tying.

i have a handy-dandy pair of slip ons that i use for work... quite handy...

velcro? isn't that for like old foggies' like rick? :) and yeah i use the two-loop system because it's symetric! one loops all funky and asymetric!

to think, if i were to use the one-loop all my life i'd be on the other side of my brain and instead of being in a tech programming board like this one i'd be in some fluffy, englishy board... imagine that! ah the mysteries of ones laces...

i use the one loop system... i think that one is much easier...
it saves time and energy in making an extra loop, when you can just take the other lace around it...

I use the one loop system - it's always worked for me :)

however!!! two loop has the advantage of precision and flexibility, complete symmetry!

ack, one loop, double loop, who cares?
are they actually going to oberve your shoe laces?
if they do, then they've got some nerves...
anyway, many children are taught the double loop first and then taught the single loop.
they do what they want afterwards.
I was taught the single loop first by my parents and then the double loop in the shoe store.
but most of the times, I'd just slip on my shoes since they won't fall off my feet.
