i’ve been tying my shoes with an ian knot recently, which bills itself as “the world’s fastest shoelace knot.”

with practice, it probably is a faster way to tie your shoes, and it does seem to be at least as secure as the knot most people use.

the whole of ian’s shoelace site is fun to read, and quite attractively designed and illustrated.


Funny, I've used that all my life and never knew it had a name.

Thanks. Now I can sound smart about shoelaces. :-)
