Do you tie and untie them everytime you take them off and put them on, or do you leave them tied and just slip them on and off?

  • Tie and untie them. I really try to avoid tie shoes, though, because I tie using bunny ears. It's just the way I learned and I never learned how to do the one loop thing. LOL! How embarrassing...

  • I untie them when they'e brand new. I try to keep them as perfect as possible for as long as possible. Once they get dirty, then i leave them tied and just slip them on and off.

    Im weird.

  • First off, I avoid tie-able shoes like the plague. But when I do wear them, usually for jogging, I untie and retie them. I like my shoes to fit snugly and if I don't untie them I either worry about aging my shoes too fast (by trying to stick my big ole feet inside a hole that just doesn't want to cooperate) or I anticipate the tie will somehow unloosen itself when I least expect it.

  • I leave them tied and slip them off because I think I am saving time, come to find out when I am in a hurry, I still have to untie them to put them back on.

  • I leave them tied... a few years ago I would lace them so I didn't have to tie them and just tie a knot on the inside so the laces never slipped but then I stopped wearing those kind of shoes. I hate tying my laces!

  • Leave them tied, but have to untie them to put them back on

  • I leave mine tied, unless my feet have swollen and then I have to untie and loosen the laces. :)
