Ian's Shoelace Site Shoe Shop Lacing Home

Commonly found on new shoes in shoe shops, this method
is another "lazy" variation of traditional straight lacing.

Shoe Shop Lacing
Sometimes referred to as "Ladder" or "Single Helix" lacing
Shoe Shop Lacing Lacing Technique:
1. The lace runs straight across the bottom (grey section) and the ends are fed into both bottom eyelets.

2. The left (blue) end of the lace is fed diagonally all the way to the top of the shoe and emerges from the top right eyelet.

3. The right (purple) lace is zig-zagged through the remaining eyelets similar to the Straight (Eurpoean) Lacing.

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:
Lazy way of lacing
Shortens laces
End lengths shift

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