Surgeon's Knot Flip Book
Also known as the “Tibetan Trekking Knot” or “Sherpa Knot”, this is the most common secure shoelace knot. Make a Standard Shoelace Knot, but before pulling tight, run the loop around and through the middle for a second time.

The finished Surgeon's Shoelace Knot should look almost identical to my Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot – a tight, closed knot with a double wrap around the middle, as compared to the single wrap of simpler shoelace knots.
NOTE: Because of the non-symmetrical way of tying this knot, the result may look somewhat different (as seen in the second photo below with the red shoelaces). This depends on how readily the laces “rearrange” themselves during tightening.
