I got some moc-style slippers with a rawhide lace. These are much
like the Perry Topsiders I usta wear, which also had these same sorta
rawhide laces. The one problem both have is, once the std shoelace
bow becomes untied, it comes undone constantly. How can one stop this
untying of this bow?
I've considered putting a drop of super-glue or silicone on the knot.
Heck, I've even considered epoxy! What I don't understand is, why one
will come untied, consantly, while the other shoe's lace never comes
untied. Actually, I'm jes looking for a good trick to keep either one
tied. Should I wet the lace before tying? This left slipper is
driving me crazy! ;)
Well, maybe not permanent, but there are many 'other ways' to tie shoes
that keeps them tied, usually until you want to untie them. I use a
method that my son taught me. I looked on Google and didn't find that
one but did find others. Check out:
I suspected as much.
I usta wear Perry Topsiders. That is until they went cheapo and QA
went to Hell, allowing mis-sized shoes get by. I tossed the last
pair, as the toe-box was rubbing the skin off the tops of my toes.
I'd try other brands, but very few make boat shoes in any kinda width
(4E). PTS came in extra wide and would stretch. All except my last
I wear AOs and the first thing I do with a new pair is step on the top
step of the pool and get them wet, then wear them until they dry.
They start molding to your feet right away. That is also when I get
the length of the laces right and tie them up tight. Use a square knot
