I have no problems with shoelaces. I double knot them though because otherwise they do come undone after a few minutes.

I just cant get the hang of shoe laces I too used to get a really hard time from a teacher in primary school who had me in tears every day we got PE. I did try the coils but still got into a pickle with them then I got elastic laces so I could slip my shoes on and off with ease (Ha Ha Ha) Now I thank God every day for the genius who invented VELCRO I love the stuff :twisted: :twisted: :P :P

I can tie my laces "properly" (as in the way I was taught was correct) but they come undone quite easily, despite me doing them really tight (otherwise it feels like my shoe is going to fall off).

One of the things my class is learning at college is how to tie laces.

Same, I can do shoe laces up but not tight enough, they come undone in a few minutes. It's very frustrating.

I have to double not my shoe laces otherwise they come undone all the time, but they are hard to untie. For school I have slip on shoes

I can tie laces..they just never stay tied. I currently have a pair of black and lime green junior trainers with velcro which I am loving. So much easier.

I can tie my shoe laces but I do it different to everyone else, although no matter what I do they seem to come undone within about 5 minutes! Shoe laces really annoy me :?

I can hardly tie shoe laces. They are one of my many weaknesses.

I've been tying my own shoelaces for about 6 years.

I turn 20 on the 26th, you do the maths.

They still come undone, I'm thinking of getting elastic laces.

I can't tie laces properly. I can do bows using the 'bunny ear' method, but they come undone within minutes. If I'm planning to walk for a long way and need to wear my hiking boots, my parents do the laces for me. Otherwise I just wear Velcro shoes.

I'm actually not bad at shoelaces-it took me until I was 12 to learn how to do them but, now I can do it, I have no problems with regards to them coming undone.

same though I usually wear slip ons in PE to save time. I think it because I'm always wearing my super awsome all strars.
