This is a great knot, but I feel you should cite the original article that you got it from. This website:
has been available since 2004 and shows how to tie this knot (which the author claims is his invention), and called the Ian knot (or the fastest way to tie shoelaces). You should always cite your sources. Otherwise you could be accused of plagiarism.

Out of courtesy to the site, shouldn't you cite them, and provide a sourcelink?

We called this the kindergarten bow; it's a winner for teaching small children.

Nice, I already tie my hiking shoes with steps one through five. Six through ten is a good ending, thanks.

Oh, alright. Well nice instructable. I usually don't tie my shoes due to the fact that I use the bar method, so unfortunately I can't use it. ;-)
what do you have skate shoes? it's like freaking impossible to skate with barred shoes, so you could possibly be a poser.. anyway, barred isn't the best. It's bad for your ankles

because i got permission fromthe site and these are the best images you can get.

But why would you make an instructable with images taken from another source showing you how? You're just reposting his steps really. I'm at a loss of comprehension here.

This is an alternative? I don't know any other way to tie my shoes that this. This is what i've grown up with.
