At first, I thought the puzzle referrd to 3 different things. It can be reworded this way:
What has eyes which cannot see, a tongue which cannot talk and a soul which cannot be saved?

The only problem I have with this teaser is that it doesn't work when it is written down. The play on the word "sole" is lost when written "soul". ...or maybe I'm just being picky.

The holes that the laces go through are called eyes. I agree that the soul/sole thing doesn't work.
