How to tie the shoelaces of leather shoes in parallel (how to pass) [How to loosen is also explained! With video! ]
We will introduce in detail how to tie and loosen the "parallel" shoelaces of leather shoes. Parallel is the basic method of tying leather shoes, so be sure to remember it.
There is a “single” knot that looks the same as the parallel knot, but we recommend the parallel knot because it fits better.
How to tie parallel shoelaces for leather shoes
Let's take a look at how each shoe looks when it's run in parallel
I tried tying it in parallel with shoes of various tastes, such as Oxford (inner blade) and Derby (outer blade) shoes.
There are no rules about how to tie them, so if you change the knots according to your favorite fashion, the range will be wider and you can enjoy the shoes even more.

The black straight tip that can be used in formal situations goes well with the parallel. There is also a single knot, but the parallel knot is more comfortable as it holds the instep firmly in place.
Compared to the straight tip, it fits well with a casual type wing tip. Of course, you can add some playfulness by using casual tying methods such as overlapping.
Raymer's U-Chip Derby
It is also compatible with U chip derby. Edward Green's Dover is also connected in parallel.

Single shoes are fine, but American-style shoes with outer eyelets go well with overlapping shoes. There is no particular rule, so you can tie it however you like.
Sophis and Solid Plain Toe Derby
Plain toe derby is also decided cool with a single. (In the case of 3 eyelets, the method of tying is the same as for single ties.) Also, in the case of derby with 3 eyelets, it fits well even if it is tied with an underwrap.

This is what it looks like when connected in parallel. Let's take a closer look at the tying procedure.
1: Pass A1 and B1 from the front.
2: Make the B string slightly longer.
3: Pass from B1 to A2 from the back.
4: Pass from A2 to B2 from the front.
5: Pass from A1 to B3 from the back. You can make it look beautiful by passing it under the string you passed in step 3 and crossing it.
6: Pass from B3 to A3 from the front.
7: Pass from B2 to A4 from the back. It looks beautiful if you pass it over the string you passed in "5" and cross it.
8: Pass from A4 to B4 from the front.
9: Pass from A3 to B5 from the back. (Be sure to pass the top layer from the back.)
10: Pass from B4 to A5 from the back.
11: Adjust the length and tie it to finish.
How to loosen the parallel (solution)
Since it is linked by skipping one step, let's be conscious when loosening it.
1: Loosen the string on the 4th row. The 5th string is pulled.
2: Loosen the second string. The 4th row string loosened earlier is pulled.
3: Loosen the third string. The 5th string is pulled.
4: Finally, spread the wings and the whole will loosen.
How to tighten when wearing parallel shoes
Since it is linked by skipping one step, let's be conscious when tightening.
1: Pull the top string on the left and right. The loose strings on the 3rd and 4th tiers are tightened.
2: Pull the 4th string. Tighten the loose second string.
3: Pull the third string. The loose first string is tightened.
4: Pull the left and right top strings again to tighten the whole.
Finally: here are the shoelaces I used to tie the parallel
I used MONDSHOELACE's "waxed shoelace round string stone pattern 2.5mm" light beige.
There are many other types of shoelaces that you can order, so you can find the right shoelaces for your shoes.
