    Read this years ago, use it daily on one anyway:D , Tie laces in a square knot, then your normal tie if much lace left.(I run laces around ankle once before square knot).
    Square knot unties easy enough when you want to remove it.
    Hooray!

    When making the wrap around the loop, just go around twice before tucking the other loop through. This will create a jam knot which unties normally.

    Put the loop thru the hole twice. I don't know what it's called or why I first did it but it holds real good. That's how my kid ties her cleats now.

    Tuck the ends in the top of your boot after you tie them. Its worked in the military since Obama was a corporal.:)

    I use bunny ears, have since I learned to tie my shoes. When I double knot bunny ears and tug with my thumbs through the loops, to really cinch down the knot, I never have a problem. Round laces on my Bates.

    Cant take credit for this.

    I replace all of my shoelaces of my hunting foot wear, most of my boots and some shoes.

    With 550 para cord, since I cut my laces from a spool, ends need to be fixed. After lacing the shoes, tie a knot at the end of the laces. Melt the frayed ends. The knot stops the lace from coming out, and its 550 cord.

    Or take out the round laces and use paracord

    Square knots, then tuck the ends. If the laces are long enough I'll double wrap and put the knot in the back.
