Introduction: Tying a Shoelace

For almost 50 years I have been tying my shoelaces like the one on the left - a few weeks ago I discovered how easy it was to tie them like the one on the right; so here is a very small almost useless instructable - unless like me you have been doing it wrong.

Step 1: Skip This Step If You Are Tying Shoelaces Like I Used to

Step 2: The Difference

Over or under.

The way I used to do it - lace over the bow.

My new way - lace under the bow.

Step 3: Neat Horizontal Bows

I absolutely understand how trivial this is - but tying my shoelaces horizontally instead of vertically makes me happy.
