Standard Shoelace Knot Video

Tutorial video showing how to tie the “Standard Shoelace Knot” correctly either right-handed or left-handed to produce a “balanced” knot that sits straight and stays secure.

One Loop Knot vs Two Loop Knot Video

Compares two common shoelace tying techniques to settle once and for all that neither is inferior and neither should be considered the “kiddies” version.

Finished Knot

Finished Standard Shoelace Knot

The finished “Standard Shoelace Knot” is identical to either the Two Loop Shoelace Knot or my own Ian Knot, the World's Fastest Shoelace Knot.

NOTE: If your finished knot comes out crooked, it's probably because you tie your Starting Knot the opposite way to mine. This will result in an un-balanced “Granny Knot”, which both sits crooked and comes undone more easily. See my Granny Knot page for more information.
