Do YOU still double knot?

My husband just exclaimed "you still double knot your shoes???  Ha-ha-ha!!!!  So here is my question for all of you- do YOU?  (I was not aware that this was some childhood tradition to feel ashamed about.  Who needs to deal with an untied lace while going about their day?  To the double-knot, I say ROCK ON!)

And as an aside, how do you  live with someone for 10 years without realizing this difference in lacing practice?  Wow, I am just as amazed by his lack of knot-age.  So please respond.  The husband and I will be waiting.  :)

OMG NO I don't!! Kelly you have me laughing, but it's CUTE, rock on girl and double tie away :)

For you hubby, yep I agree, childhood tradition - I double tie the boys' shoes until they are old enough to bend down and retie their shoes quickly, then it's double tie no more for me... :)

I don't wear many shoes with laces, but my garden sneakers ARE double knotted. The darn laces tend to untie themselves and trip me up otherwise.

I double knot my shoes, and didn't realize everyone doesn't do it until a "friend" actually laughed and made fun of me, and said only little kids did that. *She's not my friend anymore. Sheesh, I'd rather double knot them than trip over the laces!

*(It wasn't Erin. Boo, Erin!).

I meant to add....I lived with my bearded husband for over a year and didn't notice he shaved his beard one day. I mean, it wasn't like a ZZ Top type of beard, it was just a little scruffy thing. He was all kinds of upset that I didn't notice. I've come to the conclusion husbands are kind of like end tables. They are just there, and slightly useful when you need them. Mine happen to be rather dusty and unused right now. The end tables and the husband.

haha YES! At least my running shoes, when I'm running. I guess those are the shoes I would double knot, and when I'd wear them to work. I definitely don't want to have to retie shoe laces while running.

I have no idea why something so PRACTICAL would be considered childish. It's not like you're doing it so you don't have to ask someone else to tie them for you constantly.

Not only do I double knot, but I tie the top one "backwards" as someone once pointed out they stay better that way and they do!

Single knotting is so weak. Quitters.

Yes, still double knot, still tie my shoes by making two loops then crossing them and pulling one thru!

My shoelaces are too short, the are barely long enough to tie once. I do double knot when they are long enough. I hate when they come untied.

I DEFINITELY double knot my running shoes, otherwise the single knots just work themselves loose after a couple of miles. Because of this, I tend to double knot any time I'm wearing laces. No shame in that at all.
