    How to Tie Sneaker Shoelaces

    I recently got myself a few pairs of sneakers. And for the life of me, I can't figure out how to tie them so that they don't flop around all over the place. I see other people walking by, particularly with Converse All Stars (which I have a pair of), with all these fancy ways of knotting them and I want to know what I am missing.

    I also think that the laces are extremely long on one of the pairs, so I'm literally quadruple knotting it just to I don't step on it.

    Any help here? There's got to be a better way.

      I would bet that 99% of people are using a standard shoelace knot. The one everyone learns as a child. Sounds more like your shoes were just shipped with the wrong laces more then anything else. The site provided by MaxMan has dozens of lacing and tying options.

          This sounds horribly like a kindergartner but I use this two bunny ear method where I make two bows then tie them together. This is the only way I ever learned and it was taught to me by this old, mean Eastern European lady who would babysit me when I was a kid. I remember getting smacked until I could tie shoes the right way.

            I think others have hit on it, but here's an in person of the "correct" way to do the standard shoelace knot and avoid that sideways twist:

              I taught myself the speed knot after seeing joggers/runners do it on youtube. It was a little tricky to learn and takes a lot of repetition to build the muscle memory to do it fast. Its very very very useful with pant draw strings (PJs, gym shorts, etc.) because you can keep the tension on the strings while still tying the knot. It was well worth the effort to learn.
