Mr. Red showed me this video a while ago and it changed my freaking LIFE. I’m not kidding. Quad skates lace up and if they become untied while you are on the rink, instant falling down ensues, followed by days of limping around in an ungainly fashion and sporting less-than-flattering giant bruises.
It turns out I was tying my skates (and shoes) wrong all my life. And so are you. I don’t want to have to be the one to break it to you, but it turns out that your loving parents and teachers taught you something that was guaranteed to fail. But no more! You, too, can stick it to The Man by learning the right way to tie your shoes.
Watch and learn, Grasshopper.
