Ian's Shoelace Site Straight (Fashion) Lacing Home

This variation of straight lacing, sent to me by Tyrell Pedersen, eliminates
the mess by running the underlying laces vertically instead of diagonally.

Grey dotted sections are underneath
Lacing Technique:
1. The lace runs straight across the bottom (grey section) and the ends are fed into both bottom eyelets.

2. One end of the lace (purple end) runs straight up the right side, emerges and runs straight across the second set of eyelets.

3. Both ends now run straight up the left side, each skipping one eyelet before emerging two eyelets higher up.

4. Continue running both ends across and up the shoe two eyelets at a time until one end reaches the top.

5. The other end then runs across the second last set of eyelets and up to the top.

Ian's Rating:
Neatest looking
Slightly difficult
Only for even pairs of eyelets (eg. 6, 8)
NOTE: This method only works for even numbered pairs of eyelets (eg. 6, 8). If you want to use this method on a shoe with, for example, 5 pairs (10 eyelets), the easiest way is to not use either the top or the bottom pair of eyelets.

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