Why are shoe laces called laces? I can imagine at first string was used to tie a shoe, so shoe string was given the name – logical! But who has tied their shoes with lace? That I’ve not seen. But I suppose at one time someone didn’t have string to tie their shoes so they may have used lace. But on the other hand, whose idea was it to put holes in shoes anyway?
