This Guy Came Up With The Fastest Possible Way To Tie Your Shoelaces

If you're reading these words, then odds are that you already have a reliable method of tying your shoelaces. If not, no worries, this is a judgement-free zone and maybe you just really like loafers or live somewhere warm enough to wear sandals year-round (lucky). In any case, I'm always of the mind that there's never anything wrong with learning another way to do something, especially if it's a possible improvement on the original way. Ian Fieggen, known on YouTube as "Professor Shoelace," is an Australian man who has invented a new method of tying your laces which he calls the "Ian knot." As the video shows, with just a little practice, it makes tying your shoelaces an absolute breeze. It gives the same results as the traditional two loops and bunny-round-the-tree methods, but as the video shows, it's notably faster. Sometimes kids (and adults) have trouble grasping something when explained in one way, but get it instantly when explained from another angle, so the Ian knot is a great alternative just in case that happens with the traditional lacing methods.
