Ian's Shoelace Site Double Helix Lacing Home

This method was invented and patented by Monte Fisher for faster lacing of boots.
See Monte's own beautifully animated web site: http://www.lukefisher.com/lacing

Double Helix Lacing
Double Helix Lacing Lacing Technique:
1. Starting at the bottom, the left (blue) end emerges from the left eyelet whilst the right (purple) end is fed into the right eyelet.

2. The left (blue) end is fed into the next highest right eyelet, whilst the right (purple) end emerges through the next highest left eyelet.

3. This process is repeated up the shoe in a double spiral (or "Double Helix") pattern until both ends emerge at the top eyelets.

Note that the left and right shoes can be laced in reverse (mirror image) so as to end up with a symmetrical look.

Ian's Rating:
Fast & easy

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