^Stupid adults laugh when a kid is learning to tie their shoes. *but it's complicated*. It's easy for me now – thousands and thousands of times doing it through the years, and you get good at something.
Lots of people don't bother. Can't blame them. It's stupid, but it feels good to have your shoe not fly off sometimes. Unless you want to kick your friend who is 25 feet away in the head. Then a loose shoe is a good things to have.
If you see this below: You're tying it wrong. This is how to tie it right.
(and yes, there is a nearly infinite variety on ways to do this. This is just the basics)
