Just got a pair and they pretty much suck to tie and to me the laces look kinda weird when they are. Am i doing something wrong?

Yep... looks like they're going to be a bitch to tie.

EDIT: Thought Chuck Taylors were a special type, if its the normal ones just lace them up properly? I had a pair and they were fine.

yep, you bought chuck taylors
If you're a hot chick you've probably got a good chance with the lead singer or guitar player, If you're a little bit overweight, you should probably go for the drummer. If you're a dude, go for the bass player

Chucks while somehow still "stylish" are probably the single most uncomfortable and annoying shoes produced since cave men were turning pelts into footwear.

Just make sure you're over lapping them, it looks weird if you do them straight.

Over lapping?

As you put the laces through the holes as you're going up, wake you sure you alternate sides, like in the picture posted earlier, some people tie them in weird ways so that the laces go straight instead of zig-zagging, and it looks really weird.

i love my converse...i dont care what anyone says about how "cliche" or ugly they are.

plus i have unnaturally flat feet so they are actually the MOST comfortable thing for me to wear. shoes with arches just make my feet hurt.

Well, if you get shoes with no arches, then your feet will get worse.

Flat foot+no arches=Terrible feet later on.

Yeah, but you're not cool if you don't call them Chucks. You wanna be cool, right?
#31
Make sure you re-lace them so that the laces are coming up and across instead of across and in on the eyelets. Also, you might consider not lacing them up all the way.

Chuck Taylors are a pain to put on no matter what you do though.

That's odd, I too have flat feet and I find them uncomfortable. I prefer vans Authentics.
