Ian's Shoelace Site Ladder Lacing Home

This decorative lacing, sent to me by Ron Belanger, is used by U.S. para-
troopers and ceremonial guard units wearing jump boots with white laces.

Ladder Lacing
Ladder Lacing Lacing Technique:
1. The lace is run straight across the bottom (grey section) and emerges through both bottom eyelets.

2. The laces then go straight up and are fed into the next set of eyelets up the shoe.

3. The ends are crossed over and are fed under the vertical lace section on the opposite sides of the shoe before going straight up and into the next set of eyelets up the shoe.

4. At the top set of eyelets, the laces once again cross over and pass under the straight section before being tied.

Ian's Rating:
Neat & decorative
Shortens laces
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.
