A little boy has become a viral sensation this week, thanks to his very clever shoe-tying hack.


Colton Lillard, five, was having trouble learning how to tie his laces, so he turned to his friend, River, for a little help.


River passed over a nugget of wisdom that has made life infinitely easier for Colton – so he decided to share it with the world!



Colton’s mum, Ashley, took to Facebook to post a recording of the neat shoe-tying hack in action – and it has garnered major attention and praise online.


“Coolest shoe-tying trick ever! Posting to help anyone who is struggling like we were! Feel free to share,” wrote Ashley.


With over six million views, and nearly 20,000 ‘likes’ and ‘loves’, it’s clear that Colton and River’s hack is helping parents and little ones all over the world.



Indeed, thousands have branded the trick ‘brilliant’, ‘clever’ and ‘awesome’.


What’s your verdict? Try it out with your little one, and let us know!
