Bunny ears or loop?

As a kid, you may have only learned a couple ways to lace and tie up your new Sketchers, but alas, there are two trillion more. Ian's Shoelace Site provides step by step guides on lacing a Double Helix, Starburst, and even the elusive Pentagram lacing technique. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even learn the ins and outs of "Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot," the top rated technique on the site which can withstand three times the tension of more common knots.

Ian's Shoelace Site claims to be the number one shoelace hobbyist site in the world, and says over 11,000 people visit every day. Whether you're looking for the best knot for your running shoes or the cure for your "Granny Knot" woes, you now know where to look.
