Ian's Shoelace Site Display Shoe Lacing Home

Shoe stores often use this reversed version of Criss Cross Lacing on their
display shoes in order to end up with the lace ends neatly tucked away inside.
The laces still criss-cross, but they run under-over instead of over-under.

Display Shoe Lacing
I also thought of naming this method "Triathlon T1" lacing
The lace ends finish inside the shoe

Display Shoe Lacing
Lacing Technique:
1. The lace is run straight across the bottom (grey section) and is fed into rather than emerging from both bottom eyelets.

2. The ends are crossed over, then inserted into the next set of eyelets up the shoe.

3. This process is repeated until both ends reach the top eyelets and end up inside.

Note that because it's easier to get your fingers under the laces from the top of the shoe and pull down, this lacing is easier to loosen, whilst criss-cross lacing is easier to tighten. Triathletes may therefore find this lacing faster for those shoes they need to remove quickly during a race.

Ian's Rating:
Neat display shoe
Easier to loosen
Harder to tighten

Regardless of the lacing method you choose, finish it off in style
with my own Ian Knot, the World's Fastest Shoelace Knot.
