Today I learned how to tie my shoes

Knot exactly but I learned how to tie a double knot for my running and hiking shoes that unties easily.  This was my old way.  I don’t use the bunny ears any longer. I tie a square  double knot that lies flat and then tie the bows into another knot.  I only learned about the square knot in my 30’s. I learned the new way last week with my hiking group and tested it today during a run.   It works.
Wrap the shoelace twice before pulling the bow through

Pull the bow through both wraps

Finished knot

The best thing about this knot is that it unties with a tug on one of the laces.
