Fun fact. I haven’t worn laced shoes in probably 15+ years (other than dress shoes on occasion).
When I see a reference to this guy, I hear in my head “how to tie an Ian knot”. It comes from watching this video over and over on repeat until I got it right (this was back in the pre-Youtube days, when you had to download videos):
I know, right?
Am I doing this right?
I would say yes.

I will do no such thing. Good day sir.
I gotta say, lacing can make a difference.
I was suffering from some pretty significant soreness along the tops of my feet. After some googling, I tried switching to a ladder lacing setup (courtesy this site), and the went on to add a heel-lock.
My shoes fit better, the pain has gone, and the laces don’t come loose unless I want them to.
Lacing DRM can go F CK itself (and Ian too).
I was thinking “DRM”, but had trouble figuring what the “digital” part of it would be.
And why so much vitriol for this “Ian” person? I never mentioned him, not once!
Humans normally have five digits on each extremity.
Ian’s website is one of those handful of websites that has been around a very long time, remains useful, and hasn’t felt the need to change much (though it has gotten a few nice upgrades over the years). Just good useful stuff!
Y’all are going to laugh, but… every pair of casual shoes I own has bungee laces. And all the kids shoes either have bungee laces or velcro closures. I just love those things! No more broken shoelaces, no knots.
I’m an enthusiastic supporter of doing what works for you. AKA I myself am strange and unusual.
All my shoes are laced in a non-standard, mirrored fashion, for a relevant example.
Now what’s this about bungee shoe laces. I am intrigued.
These are the ones I prefer. There are a lot of different kinds, though.
