Untying Shoelaces

Coming soon in 2020

Untying is usually easy – but not always! This page explains why shoelace knots sometimes jam when untying, plus gives some tips for preventing such jams.

Coming Soon In 2020

This page is part of a series of planned additions to the New-Look Ian's Shoelace Site, which is scheduled to debut some time in early 2020. Please be patient with me as I roll out updates and gradually fill in the blanks.
