Ian's Secure Knot

| Tags: shoes

Sebastian once showed me Ian’s Shoelace Site. Back then I thought it was funny and an example of what curious sorts of sites you can find on the web.

Some weeks ago I returned to that site and actually tried out Ian’s Secure Knot. You have to get used to it. At first it’s a bit of fumbling around with the shoe laces, but after a while it’s one of those hundreds of routines you execute daily without thinking about it. And this knot really works. Since I began tying my shoes this way I have no problems with loose shoe laces.
