Wow. This is quite brilliant. The video helps and by moving the progress button in quicktime I soon saw how it is done frame by frame. It is much easier than it looks. Thanks for sharing this with us. Maybe you could do a video from the point of view of the wearer i.e with the shoe the other way round.

I still can't do it. I can only get one loop to work. Do a video that is like a step by step. I'm having trouble. -.-
Do it even quicker.....use a nail gun ;-)

This is really bothering me. I'm so close to doing it but I can only get one loop. The other loop is always loose so it wont tie. Make another vid with instructions. D:

Maybe it's the fact I thought myself to knit this week, but I managed to tie my shoes this way, after looking carefully at the pictures, no problem. Holding is indeed crucial. Look very closely at the right and left hand in step one, and you'll see how the laces should go. Funny thing is that it does not matter which way the shoe faces for this to work, so to tie your own shoes is just as simple. Thanks for the great trick!

I tie my shoes once and that is when I first buy them
You're pictures need to be redone, having not done this before, its impossible to see what you are doing

I leave my shoes tied--just slip 'em on or off. I do it out of sheer lazyness.
