You Will Need
- A pair of shoes with laces, like sneakers
- And hands!
Put on shoes
Put on your untied shoes.
Sit or kneel
Sit or kneel on the floor and bend your knee so that you can easily reach one of your feet with both hands. You can also sit on a chair and bring one foot up so that it’s resting on the seat of the chair.
Get foot comfortable
Make sure your foot is comfortable in the shoe. If the tongue is scrunched up, tug on it to smooth it out.
Hold shoelaces & tighten
Now hold the right-hand shoelace in your right hand, and the left one in your left hand. Pull gently but firmly on each to tighten the shoe comfortably around your foot.
Cross the lace in your right hand over and then under the one in your left hand. Grab it with your left hand to pull it all the way through. Grab the other lace with your right hand.
Pull to tighten
Pull both laces to tighten them.
Make a loop w/ right lace
Make a loop out of the right lace and hold the bottom of it close to the shoe with your right hand. This part can be a little tricky. Everyone does it differently, so experiment until you figure out how it works best for you.
Make loop w/ left lace
Make a same-size loop with the left lace, and hold it near the shoe with your left hand.
Now do exactly what you did in the beginning with the laces: cross the right-hand loop over the left-hand loop, and then under it.
Grab loops & tighten
Grab the loop that’s now on the left with your left hand, and grab the other loop with your right hand. Pull tight, and your shoe is tied!
Repeat w/ other shoe
Repeat with the other shoe, then hit the road!
