Many of us have fond memories of being young and learning how to do a number of basic tasks, such as learning how to ride a bicycle, or perhaps figuring out how to properly lace up our shoes. Taking a love of shoelace tying to a new level is this very comprehensive site developed and maintained by Ian Fieggen, a computer programmer, self-employed businessman, and lover of shoelaces. On this site, visitors will find out about hundreds of ways to tie shoelaces, ranging from the Surgeon's Knot to the Ian Knot, which is claimed to be the "World's Fastest Shoelace Knot." Each knot comes complete with some very nice illustrations, explicit instructions, and the best use for each knot (such as hiking and so on). There's also a good section on lacing shoes, and a FAQ section that answers just about any question about the art of the shoelace, and Mr. Fieggen himself. The site is rounded out by a good section on repairing aglets, which are those little plastic sleeves at the ends of shoelaces.
