I never knew there were so many ways to lace a shoe/boot until I ran across this blog entry. I kind of like this one, but there are a whole bunch more like the ladder, twistie, and lattice. Maybe you can go into you loved-one's closet and for a Valentine's day gift beautify his or her shoes or boots in some lovely way. Use red and black laces! Okay, so file this entry under "of no use at all" or, if you are fascinated by tiny creative acts of this sort, check it out here.
