The Reef Knot Changed My Life and It Can Change Yours

Tired of retrying your shoelaces every few hours? Can’t stand double-knotting like a 5 year old? Then you need to learn the REEF KNOT!!! Infomercial intonation side, this simple knot has made tying shoes almost feel like more than just an annoying and necessary chore. I have to thank Jesse Thorn, host of “The Sound of Young America“, for introducing this knot in my life with his new vidcast “Put This On“.   What’s incredible is how easy it is to do.
