I have noticed that my left shoe always becomes untied. My right shoe never becomes untied. Maybe it's the way I walk.

bung..are you drinkin amgio??  ah..who gives a rats ass if you are..heres my take on the deal....your shoes were designed by ralph nader.  there is a MAJOR design flaw in the left shoe.  we also saw this problem w/ his chevy corvair.  be careful..theyre probably the most dangerous shoes on the road to date!!  [BD]

Try a double knot.  Or better yet, wait until you trip over it and then sue the mfg for willfull blindness.

Are you sure you're not wearing to "right" shoes. May throw your whole week into a left spill. Could even have you visiting DU and understanding it. Better try leaving that left shoe off... fullclip

Sometimes when I walk my left foot will step on the shoelace of the right shoe and pull it undone, maybe thats why.

Because your left shoe just ain't right.

If you are right handed, there is an explanantion. Right handed people push off on their left foot more so that their right hand leads. It's more noticeable in sports, but we do it in everyday life as well. Because of that, you put more stress on the shoe, and hence the laces. So, they're more likely to come untied.

If you are left handed, disregard everything I said.

Maybe it's because you suck at tying your shoes? [;)]

Earth's rotational spin in conjunction with the natural electrical charge in all living things. Since you are north of the equator there is more G forces exerted on that side (due to the natural electromagnetic polarity of your body) and as a result more force is exerted on that side. Now if you were south of the equator it would be the right side. Of course the reverse is true for those people that have a negative electrical charge.

It's obviously a case of demonic possession of your left shoe....you have only two choices:

I guess I'll say it...

Simple...you must be right handed...therefore you tie your right shoe with a righthanded bow knot.

Your left shoe must be tied with a mirror image knot. You are trying to make a right handed knot on your weak side. Switch dominant hands and try it again. It takes a little practice, but sooner or later it becomes second nature.

Whatever I do on my right side, I mirror that to the left.

We need more information here.

Are you left or right handed?

Does your shoe have a hole in it? (then how do you get your foot in?)

Is your left shoe a postban shoe, with preban laces? (dont answer that if so, you might get an unwanted visit from the BSLO... Bureau of Shoes, Laces and Odor)

Does your left foot ever turn green and start to grow massive muscles, thus forcing the laces to come undone? (If so, you just ripped off my new comic super heelro... eer hero... idea)

Maybe its just tougher to get a shoe over that six-toed flipper you got on the left side??

Use a double knot and for gosh sakes get that tumor thing checked out ASAP,,,,,just in case.
