This 5 Year Old’s Adorable Shoelace Tying Tutorial Has Gone Viral – and It Works!

There are tutorial videos on pretty much every subject under the sun – but rarely do they come as adorably sweet as this one!

Young Colton has taught everyone a new way to tie his shoes via a tutorial video that he and his mum made recently. The video, shared by his mum, Ashley Lillard, has been shared more than 130,000 times and watched more than five million times in the short time since it was uploaded.

Colton (who is five and has a loose tooth) patiently explains how his mate showed him to tie his shoes. The family dog gets in the way, and his dad arrives home during the tutorial, but his new method takes him less than one minute to double knot his joggers!

Nifty, hey?

That is way easier than explaining bunny ears and rabbit holes.

When asked how he came up with the new way to tie his shoelaces, Colton explained that his buddy had showed him. “I learned that from my friend, River,” he says.

Now to get my children to do up their shoelaces in under twenty minutes…!
