This is a follow up to the previous post on the history of the most excellent shoe lace knot in the world "Thee Swiss Knot". If you like stopping in the middle of _____(insert any activity that involves shoes with laces) and tying your shoelaces because they have come undone then STOP READING now.
I will start by saying that the best method for learning the Swiss Knot is to stop one of us on the trail and ask us. If you can't wait until that happens then check out this short clip I shot in my professional studio with the best camera money can buy. If that doesn't work you can try following the instructions for Ian's Secure Shoelace Knot. It is close but slightly more complex and time consuming to tie in my opinion. What really makes the Swiss Knot work is taking your 2nd loop (or bunny ear) and the loose end and bringing them both back through the middle knot. I tie all of my shoes this way now and never have them come undone.
