    I always called how I tied my kids shoes the 'mommy knot'...tie as usual then tie the two loops together...now I call it a 'grammy knot'. Does not come undone even if stepped on.

    Many moons ago, when I played tennis----this was the way "all" tennis players tied their tennis shoes. I have always tied my shoes this way since. It works!!!!!! I think it's called a tennis bow.
