I used to do the “wrap-it-around-the-tree” knot but I’ve started doing the Ian knot. Over a lifetime, it’s estimated to save you 4 days of time. Although, with my late start, I don’t expect to realize that much time savings.

Great shortcut! I don’t have any shoes that tie but if I did….
Thank you. At age 66 I’ve finally learned how to tie my shoelace properly.
I used the two loop method all these years because I couldn’t comprehend the tree method. My shoelaces have become undone frequently for years, so I mostly switched to moccasins. I’ve always been “knot challenged” which is the main reason I never joined the Boy Scouts.
The Professor has too much time on his hands!!
Great video David. I am not sure that I will be changing my knot tying techiniques at this point in my life although I like the 4 extra days of time.
Well, I’ve always sought a better explanation for umbilical fetal strangulation, than the “Lucifer’s Nectie” mystery.
But I don’t think Ian’s the responsible party.
Ditto…Now its nice to know that the”aglets” are finally getting the recognition that they so long deserve….
That is the way I have always tied my shoes. I did not know it had a name.
