A VAST IMPROVEMENT:
COFFEE AND RESEARCH (IN THE DARK):
MY ATTEMPT VS. MY MOM'S. HAHA!:
First off, I have to say that Minnetonka has some of the best customer service around. I was wearing my Kilty mocs yesterday and had to keep tying them over and over again. It was really frustrating! That might sound silly, but when you have to stop every five seconds to tie your shoes, it wears on you after a while. I remembered seeing a video that Minnetonka made a while ago, but couldn't find the link. I tweeted at them, and they responded with the link so quickly. Best! In the video (embedded above), they first show you how to tie the laces the proper way, then instruct you to use some super glue to keep the knots in place. This morning I gave it a shot with my three pairs of mocs (Kilty and Driving Mocs c/o Minnetonka, Thunderbird found at Goodwill). I had major trouble with the raw laces on the Driving Mocs. I recruited my mom to help me (because I'm a 27-year-old baby), but even my mom (who is the best at everything) had some difficulty. So: if you're going to do this too, maybe have a sip or two of wine and play some relaxing music, because it might stress you out a little bit. ;)
Voilà! I think they came out pretty nice, no? Although I did say out loud (multiple times during the project) that I would make a terrible sailor because knots are not my thing. Haha!
