Learning to tie your shoes is one of those big milestones that we all celebrate as a kid. If you think about it, the traditional way of tying you shoe can be a bit complicated – there are lots of moves involved. If only there was a quicker and easier way to do it. That’s where the internet comes in.

There is a plethora of “like hacks” to be found online, one of which is an easy way to tie your shoes. I saw this for the first time the other day and wanted to test it myself. I’m looking to answer two questions…1) Is it really that simple and easy and 2) Is it faster than the way I tie my shoes now?

The Example

My Attempt

So you tell me, what that easier and/or faster? I’m sure that with a bit of practice and repetition this new way could be really simple…I’m just not sure I want to spend the time practicing. It may be a good way to teach a youngster for the first time. What do you think?
