Do you untie your shoes when you take them off?

I never untie my shoes when I take them off, I slip them on and off. It takes less time to put them back on that way LOL Do you untie your laces or slip your shoes on and off?

I rarely wear tie shoes but when I do, No, I do not untie them to take them off. But when it comes time to put those shoes back on I have to untie them to put them back on. Thats why i stick to my flip flops and sandals.

I can be thankful that I live in the south east United States for being able to wear flip flops and sandals all year around. We don't have too many cold days. I grew up in Missouri where they can have monsterous amouts of snow and ice, and I always had to wear tie shoes, or boots, so when I moved out here, I took full advantage of it. Even on a recent trip to home during the holidays, I took flip flops and walked on snow and ice with them, lol... silly I know but I don't like tie shoes, or shoes where my toes are covered.

I do, when they are new, for about a month. Then they aren't considered new to me anymore and they are subjected to my abuse of not undoing the laces! lol Though I have recently gotten into TOMS shoes which don't lace up at all and are slip ons. I like them because not only are they my most comfortable shoes, but for every pair bought the company sends a pair to a child in need. So, a great pair of shoes and helping someone in need at the same time - and no laces to worry about!

No, not usually. When I'm wearing tennis shoes I just take them off without untying the laces. But when I'm wearing shoes similar to hiking boots, I always untie the laces. I think it is because the laces are always tied tighter on the "hiking" boots than the tennis shoes.

I rarely untie my shoes to put them on or to take them off. I just slide my shoes on and then go on my way. Now, if my shoes are coming untied a bit then I'll untie them and put them back on then tie them so they're not loose anymore. Otherwise I feel like it wastes several minutes of my time doing all of that.

I always untie my show before I take them off, as I like my shoe is tied firmly. I don't feel comfortable if my shoe tie a bit loose. I think the time needed to tie and untie my shoe is worth the comfortable it can offer me.

Most of my shoes are slip on but when I wear tied shoes, I untie them each time I take them off.

I have only few shoes with laces so most of the time I don't tie my shoes or boots at all. Some of my shoes have clips, some have zippers. Only my sport shoes have laces and when wearing them I always untie them before putting on or taking them off. For me it doesn't take that much time so I don't worry.

my running shoes and some of my winter boots have laces..i usually have to tie up the boot laces because i put my jeans or pants into them which is sometimes a pain but hey, you do what you gotta do right? LOL thanks for your response!

i always just take mine off i never untie my shoes. and its quicker to just slip them on and off then having to worry about tieing them again and weather or not theyre too tight etc.

I rarely ever wear shoes that tie, but when I do I don't untie them. I do, however, untie the shoes to put them back on.
