Shoelace knots

In case you were curious in my class of 16 students the string knots with which they tie their shoes were:

1 unknot
7 right handed trefoils
7 left handed trefoils
1 different parity trefoil on each shoe

So it seems there isn’t a huge tendancy one way or the other, at least from this small sample size.
