    that would make things challenging. when I played football in HS a guy on the team broke his pinky finger. He said that he never realized how much he used it until he wasn't allowed to use it. and that was just a pinky, a thumb would be much worse. there's so much stuff that requires two hands...

    Hey ranger, try taking those clips from the cord in your pt shorts and put your boot laces in that. Pull clip tight to boot and tuck laces in. I'm just lazy, not hurt or anything.

    I hate it when my knuckles get all busted up. It makes tucking in the laces hurt like a mofo.

    my dad had something similar to those on his flight boots. It leaves an assload of excess lace and you have to wrap them around the boot two or three times. And those boots had a flap that lifted up for the laces to be tucked under.

    cut the laces down to the point where you can get the boot on and off easily. should be able to take a good 10-12 inches of lace off.

    Now that I think of it, this might be the perfect detail for the young lad on the other end of the responsibility for your situation. Perhaps he can be your boot bitch?
