How to tie shoelaces

Postby Kurtis » Thu May 21, 2015 11:05 pm

Here's a particularly useful video of someone tying their shoe-laces in less than two seconds. I usually go through one of the longer methods shown at the start, but he goes over how to perform a pretty cool knot.

I only have one pair of shoes that tie up, but this is the way I've always done it.

We're / I was taught a little differently, probably a side-effect of the over-convoluted way of teaching people things in our society. We did the first knot as you would in this video, then we had to create a 'loop' with the left lace, then wrap the right lace around the left one, then pull it through to create the knot. The one in the video is much quicker than that.

The one I was taught was more like this:

I really don't see much difference, why does it matter if it takes an extra few seconds.

Because it's simpler to learn and does the exact same thing. Besides, time saved is time spent elsewhere.

I was watching the videos thinking to myself "but I do it different". Then they show the "kids" way...

It works just fine :|
