    Supply better laces? I thought you had something, but I guess it was just a rant.

    BTW, double knots always stay tied.

    So you have never noticed that some laces stay tied better than others? I did a little research and it turns out New Balance offers "bubble laces" that are designed to stay tied, but they do not apparently come with their cleats.

    I prefer the 1 1/2 knot over the double knot. It stays tied very well, but is easy to untie. One of the dads showed it to me back when I was coaching rec.

    Most people don't know how to properly tie their shoes. Sounds funny but it is true. Hell I was tying my shoes wrong well into my 40s. Saw someone talk about it somewhere and checked it out. Suddenly my shoes stayed tied. At the same time I was watching my DD ALWAYS tying her shoes during games. Had her switch the way she tied her shoes and now there is no issue.

    Bingo. That is not the video I saw, but basically the same thing. Once I tied my shoes the proper way basically zero issues. Once my DD learned how to, suddenly she wasn't tying her shoes on the field every 10 minutes. And with the correct way you don't need to tie a double knot.
