    How do you wear your laces on trainers?

    Tucked in
    Underneath the tongue
    Tied on top

    the list goes on...

    I have noticed that there more creative ways to tie laces. I usually tie laces on top and sometimes underneath the tongue.

    ..but shouldn't
    Shoes will always look better without a visible knot and thats how they're presented in the market. Actually making an effort to hide them is plain wrong though.

    for trainers I go through the eyelets in the traditional cris-cross, then I take out the insole and tie them under it - like this. - How to Bar Lace Easy Tie Under Insole (though this shows bar not cris-cross, I use it to illustrate tying under the insole)

    I also found these which look good, but I think you got to pick them up in the USA - https://www.youtube.com/user/LaceAnchorsTV

    The trainers of choice to go with the shell suits round my way were British Knights or Troop. We were to young and provincial to have heard about the alleged connections with the KKK...

    Cris-crossed and tied in a bow. Single knot.

    I do it all by myself too.
