I only do it when my laces are too long. Now it hurts my hands too much to undo them if they're double-knotted.

I don't usually wear shoes with laces but when I do is for hiking or attending sports events and I do double knot because I don't want to spend any time tying those laces.

I only Double knot my shoes when I'm going to work, going on a run, or going to play basketball.

I don't... I have the shoes with the "stretchy material" kinda look like laces but there's nothing to tie at the end...

Couldn't agree more. It's the worst thing when you trip during a race cause you were too lazy to tie your shoes properly.

I run, so it's a habit. It's harder for me not to double lace my shoes than to do so.

Velcro. Slip-ons. Duct tape. Linguini.

FIAT google "terry moore how to tie your shoes", it's a 3-minute video on TED or YouTube. For an even better looking knot that is claimed to be even better, google "ian's secure shoelace knot".

@cornybread yeah, white ugly sneaker type things that I usually see on Ehem, "old people". I guess the appeal is that they protect the feet and are easy to get on, but they don't appeal to me. They aren't hard to find if you loony around. In fact, I believe I've seen them in Walmart.

When I run in real shoes, I knot them like 6 times—or until there's nothing left to re-knot ;)

Only if I'm power walking or something. Not for a regular day.

Yeah but my second knot is using both the loops and the strings instead of just the loops because it makes it impossible for your shoes to untie

Especially while running. Not doing so is suicidal.

My whole childhood every constantly said, "Tie your shoes." Then I started double knotting them and I still do.

I had long suspected that many of the commenters on these polls wore Velcro shoes.

No, I used to just re-tie them five or six times a day, until a comment on the TED poll led me to the TEDtalk that taught me how to tie them correctly. Changed my life!

Oh I take that back. I do have a pair of lace up boots. I don't double know those.

The only shoes that tie are my running shoes. Yes, I double know them so I don't have to stop and do it half way through.

Yes, but only because I'm lazy and don't ever untie them. I just pull them on and slip them off
