Then I push them under the laced up part. The picture is of my gardening shoes. On the shoe on the right you can see how I tie it. This kind of knot NEVER comes undone. The shoe on the left has the lace tucked in all neat like. I even keep my good walking shoes tied like this. I've gotten downright lazy about tying shoes.
