How to Tie a No-show Shoe Lace Knot

June 22, 2021

Do you have a pair of shoes that are too tight to tie the shoelaces? The no-show shoelace knot is the perfect solution. This article will show you how to tie a no-show shoe lace knot and secure your feet from uncomfortable experiences.

How to Tie a No-show Shoe Lace Knot

The no-show shoelace knot is one of many ways to keep your laces tied without having them sticking out from beneath your shoes. In order to tie it, follow these step-by-step guides mentioned in this blog post.

Instructions: How to Tie a No-show Shoe Lace Knot 

Step One:

Take the shoelace that is on top and cross it over to the opposite side. Take the end of that same lace, which should now be in front, and feed it under itself from right to left.

Step Two:

Hold onto both ends of the lace and make a small knot by pulling one end over to meet up with the other side. Make sure you pull it tight so that it won't come undone when walking or running.

Step Three:

Place your finger inside the new knot's opening, then flip it around until you reach what is now in front of your fingers as well as at least halfway round from its original direction. Now grab hold of this section again and push them down towards where they started to create another little no-holds-barred circle for holding against each other. 

Step Four:

Take the right-hand side (the long part) from inside the left-hand loop and pull it through to make another overhand knot. Make sure that you leave some slack so that when you tighten up this new knot, it will be able to go around both loops equally without stretching too much or being too loose for comfort. This sounds complicated but once you do it once or twice, then tying these knots becomes second nature!

Step Four

Step Five:

Now put the left-hand lace inside this new knot. The end result should look like a "figure eight" on each side of your shoe (one figure eight is made out of two knots). Tug and tighten the knot so that it is nice and snug but not too tight.

Step Six:

Now you have a no-show shoelace! If you need to loosen your knots, then all you should do is just tug on them until they are at a comfortable size, or use your fingers to push up the ends of one loop (which will cause both loops to become looser). It's always best if there isn't too much slack in these laces, though because this can lead to discomfort after prolonged usage with heavy shoes.

Other Methods You Can Use To Hide Your Laces

  • Tucking your laces under the tongue
  • Lacing one shoe normally and then crisscrossing it over on another shoe.
  • Using elastic laces that will stay under the shoe.
  • Use rubber bands to tie your laces together.
  • Use a shoelace hole cover or cable ties to keep the lace hidden.
  • Put a piece of fabric over the front of your shoe and then put it on the other shoe, making sure that you thread it through both shoes as well.

Some Tips and Advice

  • The knot should be tied close to the shoe but not too tight. It should have space for your fingers and also a little more slack so that it is not pulling on the lace while you tie it.
  • Tie an overhand knot in one end of the lace. This will be used as the anchor or "working" end.
  • Hold the lace with your thumb, forefinger, and middle finger of one hand (left if you are right-handed), then grasp it in a loop with your other two fingers. Push or lift the working end through this loop to make an overhand knot that forms a small "bundle" of lace in your hand.
  • Hold the knot down and pull on both ends with each hand to tighten it a bit, then pull up slightly at one end so that you have slack enough for another loop (to make an overhand) just below the point where you are holding it. The working end should still be short and not pulled tight.
