The Surgeons Knot
Tying Shoe Laces
I’ve been tying my own shoelaces since before I can remember and until this week I’ve been pretty much doing it the same old way.
I tend to do a simple bow and usually double knot to help prevent the shoes from coming untied.
Truth be told this can look a little untidy and either comes undone during the day or refuses to come undone at the end of the day when I just want to get the hell out of my shoes!
A better Knot
I was trying on a pair of shoes at Joseph Cheaney and they did them up with a stylish looking knot which transpired to be a surgeons knot. This is a knot which both looks much tidier than a simple bow but which also does not come undone during the day!
