The Kid Should See This

Professor Shoelace demonstrates the world’s fastest shoelace knot

What’s the fastest way to tie your shoes? Professor Shoelace Ian Fieggen demonstrates the “Ian Knot”, billed as the world’s fastest shoelace knot:

Make a loop with both ends and simultaneously pull them through each other to form an almost instant knot… The finished “Ian Knot” is identical to either the Standard Shoelace Knot or the Two Loop Shoelace Knot. Because it was tied much more quickly and symmetrically, the laces suffer less wear and tear and thus last longer.

Fieggen has some cool-looking lacing tutorials and tips for teaching kids. He’s also posted a more detailed tip video:
