When I seen the kids these days with their shoes laced without the traditional criss-cross pattern, I alwayz wondered how they do it.
Luckily I found this super cool site. (external - login to view) It shows you many different and neat ways to tie your shoes and boots.
I particularly like the lattice-lace, (external - login to view) ladder lacing, (external - login to view) and the checkerboard.

Just watch their amazement, its great.
