Oh the statement making power of the trendy ankle wrap shoe. Whether you opt for a summery lace up sandal, a chic tassel tie flat or step it up with a chic pair of heels, the feminine ankle wrap shoe is one trend that will surely last more than a hot second!

Not one to be left behind on anything trending or SHOES, I’ve jumped on board with both feet and have ankle wrap shoes in just about every category.

These strappy little numbers add such stylish flare to any look, from boyfriend jeans to cocktail dresses and everything in between. But… I do have a bone to pick with them; often times they just don’t stay tied, slapping the ground like it needs a spanking. Maybe it does, who am I to judge?

I’d stop, re-tie, carry on with my business, only to have the laces come undone again and again (much like my hair). Sigh. There had to be a solution out there to this common and frustrating problem and I was determined to find one.

So I present to you, my friends, the quick and easy way to keep any shoes tied, and in place, without coming undone! Otherwise known as check yourself before you wreck yourself!

    I didn’t find this so earth shattering that it needed a video. That idea has been around forever. It’s just a double tie that most moms used to keep their kids gym shoes tied.
    I use it for my gym shoes because the laces are ridiculously long. Ta da!!

      You are so right, Debbie, it is a simple double tie, a technique that’s been around forever. But I didn’t think of using it when my ankle wrap shoes kept coming untied. So I researched it and the answer was so easy.

      As a blogger, my job is to share product reviews and fashion solutions with our fabulous tribe. I figured if it helped one person who was having the same issue I was, it was worth the investment of my time.

      Thanks for stopping by, hope to see you back again. Xo Jonet
