Gravity Boot [Level 7]

  There are 34 techniques you should learn before this one. Click here to add this tie as a goal and see them in order.

Notes and Resources:

This tie was invented by Jack Elfrink, one of the preeminent knot geeks in the bondage community back in the early 2000s. His original method used a clever knot at the end unique to this tie; but that tutorial is no longer available, and it's more common now to finish it like a standard column tie. This video shows a version finished with a Somerville Bowline, which appears to be Jack approved.

There's also an old Kink Academy video of me tying this.

        It's actually a translation into rope of a classic medical bandaging technique. There, the standing end of a 2-3" bandage is started under the wrap on the insole, and then figure-8ed around the ankle, before the end is buried in the gap at the top alongside the tendon. I'm adding this as it can be a useful foundation reinforcement when working with someone whose skin is less robust.
