Ian's Shoelace Site Straight (Lazy) Lacing Home

This is a "lazy" variation of straight (fashion) lacing where one end runs
straight from bottom to top whilst the other end steps through the eyelets.

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 (blue end) is fed straight up the left side all the way to, and emerges from, the top left eyelet.

3. The other end (purple end) runs straight up the right side, emerges and runs straight across the second set of eyelets.

4. The same end (purple end) works its way up and across back and forth through the remaining eyelets.

Ian's Rating:
Neatest looking
Only for even pairs of eyelets (eg. 6, 8)
End lengths shift
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.
