Meet Colton. He’s five, he’s got a loose tooth and he’s showing the world how to tie shoelaces.

Wearing red shoes that would make Dorothy go weak at the knees, this little guy simply pokes the end of the shoelaces in the holes, twists the laces together, crosses them, tucks one lace under, does it again and – hello hello – he has himself a double knotted and tied shoelace.

In fact, the trickiest part is getting the shoe on!

Colton learnt the technique from his friend River and now the tyke has kindly shared it with 1.8 million people on Facebook.

So don’t get ya laces in a knot, just watch this vid with the kids:
