About the author (2007)

Ian Fieggen first became interested in shoelaces in 1982 when, at the age of 20, a broken-shoelace incident prompted him to analyze the humble shoelace knot. This led to the development of a better way to tie shoes, the Ian Knot, and set in motion Ian’s lifelong fascination with shoelaces.
Ian’s quarter-century of shoelace research culminated in Ian’s Shoelace Site (, in which he used his graphic design skills to make dozens of intricate lacing and tying diagrams. His site, called “the best shoelace website in the universe” by Sneaker Freaker magazine, has been featured in Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal online, and other magazines, newspapers, and websites from around the world.
Ian lives in Melbourne, Australia, where he’s often referred to as “Professor Shoelace.”
