You know how much I love to walk around barefoot, so this probably won’t come as any surprise … but it took me 55 years to learn how to tie shoes so they’ll stay tied!
I want to share this method with you today, because it really is awesome:
- It uses a simple knot that’s just a slight variation on the knot you probably already use to tie your shoes.
- Your shoes will stay tied all day long (no more tripping over untied shoelaces or having to stop constantly to retie them!).
- And, when you’re ready to kick off your shoes at the end of the day, untying your laces will be as simple as pulling on a string. (Really!)
I made a video of the process. I really think you’re going to love knowing how to tie shoes like this:
After you watch, give it a try and let me know how it works for you in the comments section below!
