has a definition of aglet
but it's a little hard to understand, and unsurprisingly, a little out of date
Quite simply, aglets are the little plastic
things on the ends of your shoelaces (and you thought it was going to be something dirty...) which are very
useful for initially lacing up your shoes. I had a pair of 12 hole boots
, and it took about half an hour as I had old laces without them.
makes quite a good substitute, scotch tape
an average one - it'll get you through one lacing, but I suppose that's all you really need.
'Aglet' is also a useful tool in checking whether you have a good dictionary
; see if it's in there.
