My laces don't stay tied well, any tips?

The question was:

I’m experimenting with my Merrells (both the boots and the shoes) on a daily basis, and I’m finding that as Wonderful as these are for my feet, the laces don’t stay tied well. […] But does anyone have a solution? A trick? Another lace they’d recommend?

    I learned from an old pilgrim…. from top to bottom hooked. The lower part of shoe must to make “x”, and the higher part of shoe  from top to bottom hooked.  It was strong enough all day.

    Assuming you are right-handed, make 2 loops with the lace in your left hand, rather than one, and complete in the normal fashion – pull tight. They will stay tied.

    Also, when done with the initial bow, make a new bow with your loops…that is, double bow knotting.
