The Mystery of Laces.

Yes finally the answer to the question we have all been asking ourselves.
Why do our shoelaces come undone…
Seriously someone has been paid to work this out.
I’ve put the BBC’s explanation below, but to keep it short, it’s because you move your feet!!!
They have still not come up with an answer as to how to stop it happening.
So just to save the country a bit of money I’ll give them a clue
Double knots…….
 Hope that helps 😉
