If you’ve ever caught a shoelace on a footbike, you’ll appreciate this. Ian Fieggen has devoted part of his eclectic website to shoelaces. He shows off his own easy-to-tie knot and can tell you why your laces keep coming undone.
And he shows a style of lacing supposedly popular with cyclists (which I have never heard of – I raced bicycles from 1980-87, though I haven’t bought laced shoes since around 1985, until my new skateboard shoes).
This style arranges the laces so the knot is tied between the top two eyelets on the outside of each foot, and hangs away from the bike. Wizard!
