As discussed in the answers to the question Why does Halacha say to tie your shoes in a specific order?, the primary reason for doing so has to do with balancing preferences for privileging both left and right. I recall reading somewhere that it was also the reverse order in which shoes are removed from a corpse, and the order we use symbolically differentiates the living from the dead. But I can neither remember where I might have read this, nor find any reference to it. Is there any basis to this connection?
