Ian's Shoelace Site Straight (European) Lacing Home

This method of straight lacing shoes appears to be more common in Europe.
The laces run straight across pairs of eyelets, giving a neat result.

Straight (European) Lacing
Sometimes referred to as "Ladder" lacing
Straight (European) Lacing 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) emerges and runs straight across the second set of eyelets.

3. The other end (blue end) emerges and runs straight across the next set.

4. Continue up the shoe, alternately feeding in one end and then the other.

Ian's Rating:
Shortens laces
Neat on top
Messy underneath

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