Seems like you are tying your shoes wrong. If you do it just a bit differently the knot will be horizontal on the shoe and tighten itself. Just do the loops over each other in the opposite order.

I like those and have been looking for a non-cordovan brown shoe. Where did you pick up the brown CXL PTB?

 

 

Edit : Question is directed at Seer's post on the previous page.

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.

The knot above is tied this way and it looks great.

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.)
