Here's a quick instructional video that shows how to tie your shoes so that the knot won't slip, but but will still pull loose when you want it to. This method is especially great for parents who find themselves constantly tieing a kid's shoe.

    Damn, beat me to it.... Good instructable. I've been doing this for about four years and have had my shoes come untied maybe five times. I have to agree that it really works great for kids, my seven year old ties his this way too. As for the round laces slipping, I haven't had that problem but the round laces I have are not really stiff so I can't say any more than that.

    Nice video! I've been using this knot for around 15 years. I started using it on my hiking boots. Now it's the only knot I tie.

    This knot is great and that's a good demo. Knotting is very hard to describe in words and still pictures, and good videos seem to be hard to make. Yours is good. I would back off on the guarantee. I have a pair of Florsheim wing-tips with stiff round laces. Those are the only laces I've seen that slip right out of this knot. The normal flat laces will stay tied, though. This is the knot every parent should be taught at their pre-parenting classes.
