Step 1: Put on shoes Put on your untied shoes. Step 2: Sit or kneel Sit or kneel on the floor and bend your knee so that you can easily reach one of your feet with both hands. You can also sit on a chair and bring one foot up so that it’s resting on the seat of the chair. Step 3: Get foot comfortable Make sure your foot is comfortable in the shoe. If the tongue is scrunched up, tug on it to smooth it out. Step 4: Hold shoelaces & tighten Now hold the right-hand shoelace in your right hand, and the left one in your left hand. Pull gently but firmly on each to tighten the shoe comfortably around your foot. Tip Hold the laces near the holes rather than at their ends for the snuggest fit. Step 5: Cross laces Cross the lace in your right hand over and then under the one in your left hand. Grab it with your left hand to pull it all the way through. Grab the other lace with your right hand. Step 6: Pull to tighten Pull both laces to tighten them. Tip It’s fine to cross the left lace over the right one to start. You might find this feels more natural if you’re left-handed. Step 7: Make a loop w/ right lace Make a loop out of the right lace and hold the bottom of it close to the shoe with your right hand. This part can be a little tricky. Everyone does it differently, so experiment until you figure out how it works best for you. Step 8: Make loop w/ left lace Make a same-size loop with the left lace, and hold it near the shoe with your left hand. Step 9: Cross loops Now do exactly what you did in the beginning with the laces: cross the right-hand loop over the left-hand loop, and then under it. Step 10: Grab loops & tighten Grab the loop that’s now on the left with your left hand, and grab the other loop with your right hand. Pull tight, and your shoe is tied! Tip Tie the loops one more time to create a double knot that won’t come undone. Step 11: Repeat w/ other shoe Repeat with the other shoe, then hit the road! Did You Know? Shoelaces were invented in 1790. Before then, shoes were fastened with buckles.
