I have a little lamentation today. I just purchased a new pair of walking shoes to do Zumba in. They are Sauconys and I really like them. But the darn shoestrings are a mile long. Why do shoe makers include shoestrings that are ridiculously long? I am an adul, and should not have to double tie my shoestrings.
I had this pair of Nikes several years ago and they had the best shoestrings. They were curled. As if someone had macraméd them and made them twist. They were not a mile long and they stayed tied without double tying them. I dumped the shoes recently because they were so slippery on the bottom that they weren’t even safe to garden in. I kept those shoestrings and I am determined to change them with my new shoestrings.
Take that shoe makers! I hope they last me a long time.
Note to self: go online and see if you can find those wonderful shoestrings.
