Figure 41. Removing shoes in water-Continued, a. Wind both
ends of shoe lace once around index finger and draw ends through
loop, forming a knot. b. If lace is short, slip hand through loop
so shoe will hang from waist; this leaves hand free. With long
lace, bend loop over itself to form a slip noose for wrist. c. Re-
move other shoe in the same way. d. Tread water and pass one
shoe-lace loop through other. e. Pass either shoe through, its own
loop thus securing laces of both shoes. Hang shoes around neck
and continue swimming.
