How To Tie Your Shoelaces

How To Tie Your Shoelaces

Tie Your Shoelaces. A quick and easy-to-follow guide to tying your shoelaces with two variations: one that's easier for kids!

Step 1: You will need

  • 1 pair of shoes with laces
  • 1 pair of hands

Step 2: Make the tying knot

Lay one lace over the top of the shoe and cross the other over it. Tuck the top lace under, and around the bottom one and pull both laces firmly at the ends to secure the tying knot.

Step 3: Make the loop

Next, with your writing hand, make a loop with the opposite lace.

Step 4: Wrap and tuck

Wrap the other lace all the way around the top side of the loop and tuck it back through itself. You should end with 1 large loop and the beginning of a second.

Step 5: Make the bow

To finish, grab both loops at the tops and pull them away from each other to tie and secure the bow.

Step 6: Variation easier for kids

Step 7: Make the tying knot

Lay one lace over the top of the shoe and cross the other over it.

Step 8: Make one loop

Step 9: Make the other loop

Step 10: Cross the loops

Cross one loop over the other.

Step 11: Make the bow

Tuck one loop under the other, pull it through the gap and tighten it into a bow.
