Shoe lace tying technique or gadget needed

I got some new shoes in NZ in June. They are comfortable, black and don't have a Maxwell Smart phone in them, but I need a gadget or trick to stop their laces from coming undone so easily. I often take my shoes off when I go into homes, so I don't want to spend ages undoing a complex knot, but I want something to keep the laces done up while I am walking.

A shoe shine guy in Istanbul shortened the laces for me, but this has not helped. Like getting haircuts in Turkey, the shoe shining was interesting and involved fire.

I found this shoelace speed tying video, so I will try this technique, but if anyone has any tips for tying laces so they undo easily but not to easily, let me know.
