Velcro has put the shoelace-tying ability of our children in a twist. While kids used to be able to tie their own laces by the age of five or six, they are now learning the skill as late as nine or 10, according to a study. But Lisa Mayo, a member of the Australian Podiatry Association, believes laces are "always better than Velcro."

"Laces take time and patience to learn but it is the best investment for our children's foot health," Ms. Mayo said. "Tying up laces is a skill children should learn early because it provides better fine motor control and strength in their fingers for other skills, like pencil grip and writing."
