How to tie your shoes


Most people learn to tie there shoes as children and never re-evaluate it. A few look at it with a great passion, like this gentleman. His three minute talk shows how we tie our shoes wrong.

Once you learned how to tie your shoe you can use a Runner’s Lock, as I call it, or the “Loop Lacing Lock” as found here.

Wanting more? Ian’s shoelace site has it all.  A couple favourites of mine are the Loop Back Lacing and Starburst Lacing, purely because of how they look.

Update! Triple base knot. We all do “one over the other” base knots when tying our shoes. Next time you do this, go one more time around for a triple over under. Makes a bunch of difference in shoe slipping!
