How To Tie Shoe Laces
Need to know how to tie shoe laces? Tying your shoe laces is a mindless activity that we all do every single day. The only exceptions are that your shoes are loose enough to slip your feet in without having to tie and untie your laces or you simply don't wear shoes every day. However, if you need to be reminded on how to tie shoe laces, then you've come to the right article. Tying shoe laces is a very simple process and should take only a matter of seconds.
- Over and under. First, grab the first string, which we will call "string 1", and the second string, which we will designate "string 2." Pull each string so that they are stretched and straight. Next, take the strings and put string 1 over string two to form an 'X' with the two strings. Then, take string 1, still over string 2, and wrap it around string 2 once. Then, grip both strings again and pull them so the small knot formed is tight.
- The loops. Now, take string 1 and form a loop with it. Form the loop by putting one part of the string next to another so that the two parts are touching. Make sure the loop is a relatively good size, but make sure that the end of the string is still relatively long. Now, take string two and wrap it around the base of the loops once, but don't pull any of the strings yet. Now, there should be a "hole" formed with your loop with string 1 and string 2. Make a loop with string 2, repeating the steps from before, without having to unwrap it from the loop from string 1. Then, push the loop through the hole.
- Finish the knot. Once your loop with string 2 is through the hole, check the ends of both strings to make sure that there still is plenty of string left. Now, grip both loops with both hands and pull with some force. You should notice that the knot you made is getting tighter. However, if there wasn't enough string left from the end of the loops then the loops will come undone. If there's only a little bit of string left, then pull on the string to make the loop smaller. Then, grab the loops and pull the knot tighter once again.
