Hickies. I have them in several shoes since I am too lazy to tie my shoes. Makes any shoe a slip on.

Better Bow

This starts as the standard shoe tie. Overhand knot, loop, then go around the loop YWICE. Learned this from a hiker when I could never get the round laces to stay tied.



“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
― Samuel Adams

Do they make laces that won't come loose so easily? I'm tightening and retying my shoes like 3-4 times a day it seems like. Confused


I have worn dress shoes for a long while. I don’t know if this has been mentioned, but the Berluti knot is hard to beat. It’s pretty much the best knot to tie with.
The guy in the video is a dickbag, but he has a good video tutorial. Hope this helps.

That said, a square knot tied correctly will do the job almost as well.

Imagine if everyone refused to accept mediocrity. Imagine if everyone gave their best, and refused to settle for half assed crap.

What's wrong with a quick double knot? Been doing it for years. You don't need to buy anything.

I prefer the flats for a dress shoe but only saw the boot version.

I switched out the round laces for flat laces. Helped some.

I'd say this right here.

The ECCO's would never stay tied and I double tied them for years.
One day talking to the salesmen, this issue come up... sure enough, been doing it wrong for years!

Tried the correct way (just reverse the first or second part) and it worked like a champ. It is hard to re-train the habits after years of doing it wrong.
He said he has told people in their 80's.

Pretty common issue.
