In this simple tutorial, we will teach you how to tie a Berluti knot. Dress shoe laces are often overlooked. They do, however, allow you to stand out in a crowd when you otherwise would not. Other people may not know you tied your shoes differently in the morning, but you will know, and that’s enough. Tying your shoe laces in a different, or unique manner, not only make you look more sophisticated, but it can also give you a firmer knot. The Berluti knot does both of these. The knot is one of the more complex double knots, at least more so than the Parisian knot, but the symmetry and unique appearance make it worth learning. Follow these simple steps and you will be tying the knot in no time.
1. Twist your laces once
2. Form two bunny ears
3. Cross the 2 bunny ears
4. Take the bunny ear that started on the right and the lace end next to it
5. Push both of those through the hole in the center
6. Repeat the step above with the bunny ear that started on the left and the lace end next to it
7. Pull the bunny ears to tighten – Your Berluti knot is now done!
