Shoe Lacing Experimentation

Another pair of shoes means time to visit Ian’s Shoelace Site.  Turns out this pair of shoes are borderline fit, and so far,  attempts at lacing either make the right foot or the left foot uncomfortable.  Plus,  relacing the shoes is giving me extra practice doing the Ian ultra-fast knot – always thought that would be a neat knot to get down pat.  World’s fastest knot,  after all – and Jeremy Moses once demonstrated that it could be magically fast indeed.

My last pair of shoes,  I used European-style straight lacing.  This time around,   that one seems to make the right shoe uncomfortable,  so I’ve tried the old-fashioned criss-cross,  the over-under (both still make the right side uncomfortable),   and now trying the fashion-style straight lacing (makes the left side uncomfortable!).  Can’t win, it seems.   There’s a little bar in the front of the laces,  so I haven’t had a chance to try the “double-helix” ,  which sounds especially appropriate for a bioinformatician.  Maybe I can try doing it reversed or somesuch,  so it starts with the laces above…
