I learned this a few years ago and it works great. It's called a reef knot and it does take a minute getting used to going under rather than over but, if tied correct the knot will actually tighten the more its worn.

I don't remember who taught me to tie my shoe when I was a kid, but they taught me correctly...

Just picked up the natural CXL LSxSE boot, waiting for the Kudu Ultimate Indy.  I also see brown CXL in my future  .  .  .

There is a simpler way of getting the same result. Instead of switching the orientation at the loop stage of the knot, you tie the first overhand knot in the different direction, and then do the loops as you normally would. (In case you are currently tying your shoes incorrectly and have grown used to doing so.)

See, that is a great looking boot/leather. Probably the next best next to shell!
