Chain knots, also known as a chain sinnet, are a fun way to personalize your Sperry Top-Sider shoes and fairly easy to do. Watch this video for a step-by-step guide on how to tie a chain knot. Instructions are also listed below:

Step 1: With your Sperry shoe laced and the lace lying free, take one side and make a loop.
Step 2: Partially pull a bit of the lace into the loop without pulling the entire lace through, and then pull the end tight, leaving you with a smaller loop. This will be the start of your chain knot.
Step 3: Similar to the step above, grab another bit of lace and partially pull the lace through the loop then pull tight.
Step 4: Continue the previous step until you run out of lace.
Step 5: Repeat all the above steps with the other side of the lace.
Step 6: Once you have created your chain knots, tuck the ends in to each other neatly.
Step 7: Show off your Sperry shoes with your personalized chain knots.
