Men, You’re Actually Tying Your Shoes All Wrong


These shoes were tied incorrectly, according to celebrity menswear stylist Ashley Weston.

It’s one of the worst crimes, according to Ashley Weston, who told Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman in “Better Call Saul”) to tuck his shoelaces into his shoes for his appearance on “Live! with Kelly and Michael.”

That’s right — if you’re wearing dress shoes, you gotta tuck in your shoelaces.

Here are a few more of Weston’s shoe-tying tips for top shelf street style:

• The bows should lay horizontally across your shoes, if wearing sneakers or boat shoes, for example.

• And they should be no longer than the width of your shoe.

• If wearing boat shoes, which always come untied, either double-knot them, or glue them together with superglue.

• If wearing tall boots and cuffing your jeans, you should tie them back around the top of your boots — Weston shows you how in the above video.

Menswear and looking sharp is all about the details,” Weston says, “and it’s these teeny, tiny, little things that really sets apart a well-dressed gentleman from a regular guy.”
