Shoelaces. There has to be a better way considering the advancement in technology these days. I'm watching movies from over 20 years back, and I see people tying shoelaces. Shoelaces don't cut it anymore. With all the time wasted tying shoes. Have any of you been on a Cruise vacation? If the ship sinks, the crew members always advise that you leave the ship in a calm manner with life jackets and good shoes. So the boat is sinking, and you are struggling to tie a double-knot in order to escape the boat in time. No, doesn't cut it. It's repetitive, shoelaces can be dirty and they come undone. And it's just a b!tch when gum gets stuck on them. A lot of young people don't even tie there shoes. Of course, this is seen as sloppy and careless. Some have them tied loosely and never untie them (skateboarders). There have been zippers on some AND1 basketball shoes, they were okay. However, they only work in conjunction with shoelaces. People over 12 don't usually use Velcro. So, let's change history and come up with a solution.
