I always tie and untie.

But I do have a pair of shoes (actually it is the second set, after the first wore out, and won't be the last) where I have replaced the laces with elastic so I can just slip them on and off. They were originally intended to be for just messing about the house, but now I tend to wear them everywhere (when, that is, I wear shoes).

Sneakers slip em off untied them retie them later.

Boots are tactical boots so can't really slip off.

Depends on the shoes. If I can't get them on and off without untying them then they will get tied and untied. For those that slip on and off tied while still fitting my feet they remain tied.

For this to be RSP-worthy, instead of boots, your poll needs to be about undergarments.

(I can't slip mine off without untying the laces.)

I wish all my shoes had boa fasteners (basically a little capstain for laces) so I never had to deal with laces again.

Your undergarments have laces?

Apparently there's a tape that is good for keeping cards together and restraining willing partners, so no need for knots.

All of the above, depending on the shoes and where I'm at or what they are being worn for.

This has been bothering me since I replied...

The poll suggests that there are people who put on and take off shoes that have laces tied, and which are never untied. You're saying explicitly that you do this.

My question is how? How do you do that? The whole point of laces is that when tied they secure the shoe snugly on your foot such that it can't just come off. Short of elastic, how on earth do you put on or take off a shoe with laces tied, unless you wear them such that they can slip around and thus the laces are largely pointless?

I hate shoelaces. I am pleased that men's fashion has now made it semi-normative for me not to need them.

Thanks, fashion!

Started to photoshop something suitably horrifying; decided we should just agree to disagree.

Now, off to post a thread along the lines of "why is BGG showing me ads for leather underwear & saddles which look too small to fit a horse"

Bingo. I buy shoes with laces but mostly pretend they're slip-ons. The only time I tie the shoes tight is when I'm going hiking.

For anyone who hasn't tried elastic laces, I heartily recommend them. My shoes actually stay much tighter on my feet, but I can still slip them on and off just like before. It's been so awesome. I'll never go back to regular laces.
