Also known as the “Double Slip Knot”, this is a secure shoelace knot with a simple, symmetrical method of tying. Cross two loops and pass them both through the “hole” in the middle. This is a shoelace knot that won't come undone on its own!

Begin with regular “Starting Knot” Fold both lace ends into “loops” Cross right (blue) loop over left (yellow) Wrap right (yellow) loop around to front Wrap left (blue) loop around to back Feed both loops through the “hole” Pull tight to complete the knot

NOTE: If your finished knot looks uneven or twisted, it's likely due to the shoelaces not completely “rearranging” themselves during tightening. See my Technical Info page for more details on tying neatly.
