How To Tie Your Shoes
This is a really great site on how to lace and tie your shoes. It has both decorative and practical methods. The "Ian tie" is worth learning and the secure tie is probably what I will use from now on. I actually remember the day I got that "aha" moment and learned to tie my shoes, who knew I've been doing it wrong ever since. I've been doing the initial tie, that first sort of "base" tie incorrectly. I always go up and over from the front when I should be going up and over from the back. the site is definitely worth a look.
