How Do You Hide Your Shoelace Knot The Right Way? OOOOOH~

(Example pics of what I mean)
I was wondering if anyone knows how the shoes in these pics hide their shoelace knot in front. All you see is the strings and you don't see the part where the shoelace is tied up. Do they just tie them behind the little pad? Do they not tie their shoes and just tuck them in somewhere? I just bought some skate shoes and want to make my shoelaces look like that too but I somehow feel that I'm not doing it right. What I'm doing is tieing the shoe behind the little pad but I don't know, you can kinda see it showing a bit when I walk around.

So I want my shoelaces to look like this:

Instead of having it tied in front like these:

Thanks for the help!

what i do is to tie a dead knot under the tongue, right where the underside shoelace hole is (make sure it is real 'dead' a knot) and cut the remaining lace. it's more convenient that way, you can just slip into your shoes without fussing over your shoelace knot

^Yup, when you string your shoes, instead of making it thread from inside to outside, do it from out to in. I tie a double knot since the tongue of my shoes is sort of high. Or, you can tie it once and put the remaining parts on each sie of ur foot. It may feel a bit uncomfortable though.

i don't tie mine....i used to just stuff it under the tongue.

but all those extra strings are really making me uncomfortable in the shoes, so i just tie them up into a single bow in the front.

I tie it behind the tongue. It gets annoying because when you slip your foot in, you might be stepping on top of the tied shoelace. Kind of hard to describe, but I like fluffpuff's idea.
