    The laces on my dress shoes come untied several times a day [​IMG]. This is quite annoying; please help.

    Double knotting is not a viable solution to my problem. Nor is getting loafers.

    Get better laces, go to a nice shoe store and ask. Had the same problem with some shoes I bough before and after changing the laces that never happened again.

    It seems I have the same problem with the laces that usually come with the shoes upon purchase. The "wax coating" that is on the laces seems to be a big contributor to the continual need to retie the laces. Asking the Shoe Store clerk has worked for me as well.

    I had the same problem and the problem was the wax in the shoe laces. Basically the lace needs to grip something not slippery, You also need to be careful when buying new shoe laces, you want the ones that aren't shiny.

    I agree. I haven't owned a pair of tie dress shoes for 20 years.

    There are some VERY expensive, upscale and acceptable slip-ons that are perfectly acceptable in almost every circumstance short of an audience with the Queen.
