One Handed Knot Flip Book
Here's a simple knot for tying shoes with one hand. Lace the shoe with the bottom end permanently tied off, then secure the
top end with a simple loop knot.
NOTE: The following lacing diagrams are upside-down compared to the other
Lacing Methods on this website, as they are drawn from the perspective of tying the shoe.
One end anchored near toe.
Other end snakes through all eyelets.
Second pass through right eyelet.
Form a loop across straight section.
Feed under straight section and out.
Pull emerging loop to the right.
Pull tight to complete the knot.
Finished Knot Gallery
The finished One Handed Shoelace Knot should be tightly bunched against the eyelet, which will then stay quite
secure (unlike many other one-handed shoelace knots).
Shows the shoelace anchored to the aglet at top-right with a “Figure of Eight Knot”.
