Am I the only adult who double-knots his shoes? I have to. If I don’t, I have to stop and retie one or both shoes several times a day. I have a new pair or work shoes that have laces the seemed to have a texture that appears to be resistant to any slippage that might cause them to come untied. I wore them for the first time today and within an hour one was untied. I guess there’s been no technological breakthrough in shoelace technology after all.
Speaking of footware, I could have written this Eric Zorn piece a year ago. Although I never would have posted pictures of my pasty sock line. Thank God we both have wives who save us from bad sock fashion sense (or no sense at all, as the case may be).
