Welcome to a Very Short Hub
about a pairof shoes and the great invention: the shoelaces. To be faair, here is what I found to be the man behind the shoelace: Shoelaces were invented by Harvey Kennedy on March 27, 1790. The shoelaces were, in all probability, non-fashionable, drab to be honest, but they worked. This must be the truth because shoelaces are still being used and are still important today in 2020. I just wonder who recorded such things as the first shoelaces coming to work in 1790? This is a very interesting question, but I do not have the time to explore it.
But all hail to our friend, Harvey Kennedy. May your soul find rest for all of your work and ingenuity. I mean, I couldn't have performed this deed, inventing shoelaces, because it was like Kennedy, who possessed a sharper mind than you are I. So the next time you slip-on a pair of laced-up shoes, whisper, thanks, Harvey Kennedy, and continue lacing-up your shoes. Those around you will not understand, but you will, and that is really all who counts.
Since You Are Here, Here a Few Facts About Shoelaces:
⦁ As long as shoelaces have been manufactured, I do not know of anyone who has ever invented steel or tin shoelaces.
⦁ Shoelaces on a burly male which are pink and delicate are not very popular and do not sell that well. Even the most-sensitive male of 2020 will balk and smile as his female friend will find-out that she did not know him as well as she once thought.
⦁ No one has ever tried to use shoelaces as a food item. But somewhere in our vast universe, there had to be somone, probably intoxicated, who thought that that shoelaces looked the part of a chocolate strand of spaghetti. How pitiful.
⦁ A shoelace cannot be used as reigns if being used to guide a horse. People will laugh at you and the horse will laugh at you for trying.
⦁ Here are just two musical artists who recorded one shoelace-based song: Dodie Stevens - Pink Shoe Laces and The Chordettes. I got to get off of here and listen to one of these songs.
Now Let's Learn About High Heels
of course, without being sexist, high heels, which look great on females, were invented by Catherine de Medici in the 16th century. Let'sall give Catherie a big hoo-rah for her invention of these wonderful items.
I wonder what de Medici had on her mind whenever the brainstorm hit her to invent high heel? My thinking is that in this era, ladies wore those very long, gown-based dresses, but one day, a few of these ladies had to cross a big pulldle of water to just get across the cobblestone drive-way and their dresss were soaked. These ladies were angry and I couldn't blame them. So the day came when de Medic accidentally met two of the three angry women who had had been soaked by a big puddle, so her mind went to work and sure enough, she knew that they couldn't wear small ladders on their shoes, so then came high heels--beautiful, stylish, and very easy to wade deep water.
Since You Are Here, Here a Few Facts About High Heels:
⦁ high heels are held on their feet by her manicured toes. No shoe laces required, but at the end of a workday, this lady's feet was hurting because aching feet is the main down-side for wear high heels. The same can be said if a guy wears high heels all day long as hig job.
⦁ if a woman tried to attach shoelaces to look cool on her high heels, she would damage her heels and laughed at by her co-workers in the office. Even the guy wo was wearing high heels would laugh along with the female office personnel.
⦁ survival expert, Bear Grylls, has never taught that if a woman is found to be trapped into a dangerous situation, Grylls said that if she is wearing high heels, to just toss them away when they are worn out and the woman should not tryy to eat them no matter how hungry she is. I noticed that this advice was only for the high-heel-wearers and not the men.
⦁ high heels look the best when a woman wears them. Pretty sound, huh?
⦁ sometimes it looks like a woman cannot run fast if she is wearing heels, but if the woman's toes are trined and given weely work-outs, she should run like a deer.
In a Capsule
If asked, do women actually like wearing high heels? According to a female business person, the sales of high heels fell 12 percent in 2017, while women's sneakers sales rose 37 percent to $2.3 billion, according to the NPD Group’s retail tracking service.
There you have it.

Now we know who to thank for the invention of shoelaces and high heels, the inventors, and you who write about these inventions. I can tell that you are having fun with, dare I say, oddball subjects. Ha!

Quite interesting. A good follow up would be the history of the aglet.
