  1. So not awesome when you’re a freak girl-with-big-feet. I like my shoes as tight as humanly possible.

  2. I use to keep all of my shoes this way. Slip ’em on, slip ’em off…no problem, but lately I have felt the need to make my shoes tight. This requires me to untie and tie them several times a day. Hopefully, I will go back to normal soon and keep my shoes tied like they use to be.

    1. Your gonna be in DC on July 6?!?!!!! If that was on a weekend I would sooooooo be there, but its on a Tuesday and I’m already taking my vacation next week. Maybe after DC you could go just a couple hundred miles west, then I could definitely be there!

  3. CLASSIC awesome thing that gets overlooked. It’s these minute things that make life worth living. I laughed out loud when I read that!! :)

  4. Such a wonderful feeling! The other day I went to look at a house and when I got there I had to unfasten my sandals which takes me forever. Inside I was cursing myself for not wearing my perfectly tied chucks.

  5. simply new shoes…
    I had a pair made for me last year by a shoemaker who does it for re-enactors: purple shoes, specially made for me.
    I couldn’t stop looking at them.

  6. LOL This is how I always wear my shoes. I cannot stand untying, putting it on, and then tying it again. How annoying. Not to mention, us in school don’t have that much time after Gym. Thanks for putting this post up!

  7. This is so cool! I just taught my little brother to do this. I told him I tie them like that so I won’t ever have to tie them again, because I think a rabbit could tie a bow better than me.

  8. OoOoo dis is awesome ! Close to walking on air… Not that I necessarily know what walkin’ on air is like, but I tend to think it’s like when you’re in love or your feet are snuggled up in Uggs. LOL

  9. I always wear my shoes like this! I get lots of criticism for ruining the shoes and not knowing how to tie them (I think i’ve forgotten) but it’s so awesome I can’t stop!
