Do your shoelaces come undone?



I have been using the 'Granny Method' since I first learned to tie my shoes in kindergarden. I thought that it was normal for laces to eventually come undone.......















I had no idea it could be so simple........... why didn't anyone tell me that it was easy peasy??????

Can't believe that I have spent good money on clips, toggles and do-dads when I could have been tying them myself.

How do you fasten your laces?

Gotta learn something new everyday.

Thanks for the video, I had to go tie my shoes to see how I did. I'm a proud to say I use the reef knot, which explains why my shoes never come untied.

I loved when that article first came out! Funny enough, I have never had a problem with laces coming untied. Of course now I've jinxed myself.

Derek and Kovas: Good to know that it actually works!! My Kindergarden teacher should have been fired for teaching the wrong method. lol

I do it right but I always double tie when I do an event - I have seen too many people stopping due to untied shoe laces.
