Most people think there are one or two methods for tying shoelaces. However:
Many are surprised to learn that there’s more than one method, let alone seventeen! This sheer variety is testament to the ingenuity of people throughout the ages in their quest to prevent shoelaces from coming undone.
Admittedly, I am sort of taken with all the methods, and the feature comparisons. Perhaps it’s because I remember feeling a bit cheated when my younger brother and sister were “allowed to” wear Velcro. I never did.
If you’re left with a need for more, head over to the Cabinet archives for some knotting of a different kind.
