How to tie a single shoelace for leather shoes (how to thread) [Explained in the video! ]
We will explain in detail how to tie (pass), loosen and tighten the "single" shoelaces of leather shoes. We also introduce videos.
"Single" is a knot in which the strings that pass through the outside are parallel, just like "parallel". The “parallel” knot has a better fit, but the “single” knot looks neater and is suitable for formal occasions.
Let's take a closer look at "Single".

A classic black straight tip for formal shoes that can be used for ceremonial occasions and business occasions. Straight chips go very well with singles.
It's also nice to have a commitment to changing the tie depending on the occasion, such as a parallel tie for business occasions with an emphasis on fit, and a single tie for ceremonial occasions with an emphasis on formality.
Similar to the straight tip, it goes well with inner feather shoes.
If the wings are closed with the shoes with inner wings, there is no difference in appearance between single and parallel. It would be one way to compare and choose a tying method that is comfortable to wear.
