I just tie a normal bow knot, then tie the loops in an overhand knot. They never come untied.

I’ve had all types of boots over the years and just purchased these for a SD pheasant hunt this fall. I thought I would give them a try and get away from laces all together, and the price was right at Sportsmans Guide on my membership. Got these 3 weeks ago, breaking them in and have to say really like this alternative to laces - had to get over the fancy fidangled aspect but my nephew swears by them and said what the heck - so far so good and really like them:

Lace material makes a difference. Have a pair of boots with a stretchy nylon material, can’t keep them tied for nothing.
Just haven’t swapped them out for leather yet.

I have had Redwing 606 boots for over 20 yrs. The last several boots, I can not keep those things tied for anything. I am almost to the point I am going to tell Redwing that they need new shoe strings. I have retired them about 6 or 7 times a day at work and sometimes i dont even retire them anyomore. Somerthing about them strings that are just junk.

I double-knot all of my shoes and boots with laces, they always stay tied.
