I've never understood how the laces stay up either. I just wear a pair of regular dress shoes.

The trick is in the twisting of the laces my friend! I will try my best to describe this: tighten laces across top of foot, bring laces together top, middle of foot, one lace in each hand now twist them three times before pulling apart and bring to the back of ankle. Where you repeat the twisting three times. Tricky part, one lace goes inside around over top and hold on the outside of ankle. Now bring the other lace around from the outside, across top to inside and then back of ankle then meet on the outside again (where you held the first one in place). THe trick is the twisting and having one lace longer then the other because that is the one that will go the long route around your ankle before being tied on the outside of the ankle. I do a double tie just to make the laces even once again. Perhaps someone else can describe it better than I but that's what I do and they don't come untied or sneak down! Plus circulation remains to the foot! Good luck, practice a bit and look at someone else's tie job, perhaps they'll even help you get it if you ask kindly to explain! Or maybe I do this wrong and that is my interpretation of the whole thing.
