A different way to tie your shoes for school


There’s nothing quite like lacing up a brand new pair of shoes fresh out of the box! If you don’t have new shoes, the trick I’m about to show you will revitalize them. Where will your feet carry you this year? You could lace up those kicks using the standard format or you could break away from tradition and try something different.  I will show you a nifty way to tie your shoes that is easy.

Step 1: You begin by going in at the bottom from underneath. Instead of crossing the laces right away, skip over to the next row of holes and then cross them.

Step 2:  After crossing the laces you push them through from underneath again, skip up to the next row of holes and then repeat everything again until your shoes are laced with X patterns.

You don’t have to be the coolest kid in school and you don’t have to do as everyone else does. Just beware: Finding small ways to break pattern may lead you down a path toward your own style! Wherever your feet may carry you, I wish you good luck.

Did you come up with your own way to tie your shoes? I would love to see them! Send me pics at office@lynnwoodtimes.com

I graduated from the University of Washington in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts, and I majored in Creative Writing. I began working at the Lynnwood Times in April of 2019 when we released our first issue. To me, community newspapers help highlight things that don’t typically get highlighted by larger news sources. For me, I find this especially true about the arts, and I have a strong passion for the arts community and bringing information about it to the public.
