What shoe do you put on first

When you get dressed to head out the door for work (hopefully you get dressed), what shoe do you put on first?

What ever you grab, Left, or Right?

I tend to be in the "What ever you grab" department. If the shoes are lined up I tend to go for the right one.

I put on Zachary's shoes first. Then whatever I am closest to. I haven't actually untied my sneakers in months; they're just kind of like slippers. Which is good, because I don't have a free hand to tie them.

I still can't tie my shoes properly. My father taught me the incorrect way of doing it (he can't do it either), and once that got stuck in my head I could never learn the correct way. People still go on about rabbits going round trees and under holes, or round under over etc, but I just can't remember how to do it.

My method is to tie a normal knot, and then make two bows and tie them in the same way.

As far as I remember, I always start with the left shoe. I tend to use a
shoehorn, but if im late I use the brute force approach.

Concerning tieing shoes:

If anyone of you ranchers are into shoelaces, "Ian's Shoelace Site" might
be something for you:

Hmm. I wonder if there is a correlation between people being left or right handed, and their preferred first shoe. Are you left handed, or is my theory rubbish?

It was slightly distressing in school when I was the only one who couldn't do their shoes up properly, but I've got over that now. In fact I'm knot bothered much.

Same here. But I prefer using left hand to hold scissors and carry bag.
