    With the improvement of 3D screen in the next 5 years, we will have the 3D Jaws advertisments in the street, but no simple auto lace shoes.

    I don’t seem to have problem with shoe laces. Only probly tie them twice a year. Though my work shoelaces tend to get damaged often though I do work in a manual labor job.

    @drev: We already had Jaws 3D once, we don’t need it again.

    Yeah, I remember the problems I had with shoelaces as a kid. I was though of as a slow developer because I ‘couldn’t tie my shoelaces’ XP

    I still prefer to wear velcro strap shoes even today. It’s not about age, it’s about patience; how long you’re willing to put up with it..

    I won’t put up with it for long.

    “Ban all shoelaces!” (like in that game back then about a campaign…) We had a show in school where the whole class danced together and during the dance my left shoelace got untied… I had to tie it in order not to fall on my face during jumping and stuff…

      That is because you’re an idiot. And shoelaces drool, they’re worst thing ever made for cloth.

  • shitbrain

    July 16, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    screw shoelaces! why dont they have those self lacing shoes yet???wtf?

  • mad2physicist

    July 16, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    What about getting your shoelace caught in a bicycle chain? Then you have no choice but to keep on coasting down till finally you flip over painfully. This put me off using bicycles.

    Next time someone is watching saddles remember it takes an IQ of atleast 60 to tie your shoes.

  • asc3asc3asc

    Ever seen any form of athletic shoes without shoelaces? I thought so. Wonder why? Precise and uniform constriction.

    Velcro was awesome, except for how easily it came off the backing. Don’t know why they always used cheap glue to hold the Velcro onto the backing strap.

    5 years from this day still no self ting shoes thats bullshit

  • gamegirl99

    October 10, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I dont bother with mine. I leave them untied, and just tighten them, tuck them in, and be on my way. Problem solved ^^

  • SleepyGothGirl

    October 13, 2010 at 2:25 am

    Yes! OMG I want self tying shoes! McFly so lucky!

    i have to tie my shoes the “bunny ears” way anyways

  • The gamer

    November 28, 2010 at 9:55 am

    Another thing thgat annoys is when one part of the lace in one shoe is longer that the other or when the laces are super thin and short.

  • Rasengan999

    December 16, 2010 at 4:18 pm

    Don’t worry James. Nike has started development on those PowerLaces, and they should be around sometime around 2015, probably sooner.

  • ZephyrWestWind

    Shoelaces. They come untied just when a sniper fires a bullet at your head and saves your life since you have to bend down to tie them. Thank you shoelaces!

    Besides, I had velcro shoes once. Lint stuck to them until they almost didn’t work anymore.

  • splinter4295

    September 22, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    My shoes doesn’t have anything at all on them, just slide your foot in and you’re good. =P I wish all shoes could be like that.

  • SuperSonic

    October 8, 2011 at 1:57 am

    I find the best way to keep em from comming untied is just tie a knot in the end of each lace before tieing and then tie em tight it works. Once the laces and shoes wear in anyway.

  • Riddler

    October 20, 2011 at 6:56 pm

    I tie mine once and they never untie, but if they constantly do, i put safteypins through em to hold them nice and tight.

  • Shidow1123

    December 18, 2011 at 10:49 pm

    Chucks are the worst. Not only do you have the whole coming undone problem but every time you put them on or take them off you have to loosen or tighten half the damn laces.

  • RhyanChapman

    January 10, 2012 at 6:37 pm

    I love your shoes in this vid! where did you get them from?

  • lunalicrichard

    January 27, 2012 at 4:53 am

    Power laces would be so cool ! But will sadly never come. Just like we all thought we would have flying cars in the year 2000, back in the ’80’s .

  • SmoothJazzFingerBlast

    You know what’s bullshit? The fact that these queefs (Queeves?) don’t use correct punctuation in their segment title (See my first sentence for the correct term). Didn’t James ridicule a couple games for not using correct spelling, grammar, et cetera in some of his game reviews? James will die painfully on the set of his shitty movie for this blatant, ugly error. Mike will die at his funeral, while sobbing uncontrollably.

    I never understood it,even if i do it correctly,they still go off. Now thats wat i call some serious bullshit

  • October 27, 2013 at 7:15 pm

    Not a problem for me since I never tie my shoes. I find it to be uncomfortable.


    May 7, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    It took me years to learn the art of tying shoes. Even now I fuck it up. I have to stop every 5 minutes to tie them because they become untied somehow. It’s like some fucking ghost unties them jus to fuck with me. Not only that but they look sloppy. You’d think after all that effort they’d look dope but nah they look like shit. Now that’s bullshit!


    May 7, 2014 at 1:22 pm

    2015 is next year. They released those nikes but they weren’t self laced. They looked mad dope but were mad expansive. At least the money was going towards a good cause I guess.

  • KhyraAres

    June 12, 2014 at 3:51 am

    well james…..2015 is about 8 months away and we still dont have self adjusting laces…..damnit!!! i was hopeing for those too. fuck. what a bunch of bullshit

  • August 6, 2014 at 1:09 am

    What if you Googlgon knot them?

  • November 30, 2014 at 3:07 am

    all i do is do a quatruple knot and cut the rest off with scissors; no butterfly for me thank you.

  • June 1, 2015 at 10:48 pm

    well it’s 2015, time to say thats bullshit

  • MelancholyRose

    November 24, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    I’ve had the same pair of shoes for three years, and I only tied them once. From then on, I just slipped them on and off. Fuck laces.

    Like that you added the outro. I use duct tape and elk’s blood to keep my shoes tied. Dunno why I have to put blood on them; my parents said it was the rite way. Don’t blame me for that pun, either. Even cultist parents have terrible jokes.
