The shoe button was the PERFECT method for holding shoes on the foot and it worked for CENTURIES! There was NO REASON to ever give up button shoes! Entire generations of families worked in the shoe-button-making industry AND in the buttonhook making industry and there was absolutely no reason to take away their livelihoods!
And what for? The SHOELACE! Has there ever been a more STUPID and USELESS and POINTLESS invention? NEVER! They break. They untie. They can be used to STRANGLE and MAIM! Countless people have DIED from tripping over an untied shoelace and WHY? Because some designer decided we needed to change away from the tried and true shoe button.
