View Full Version : Lace 'em up!

How are your shoes laced? My zapatos chicagos are laced with the straight bar, but my exercise shoes are the typical criss-cross. I once had one-handed laced shoes.

I'm trying to re-learn the one-handed method, so I googled and found this amazing site. :D Ian's Shoelace Site - Introduction (http://www.shoe-lacing.com/shoelace/index.htm)

Flip flops and boots don't require laces! And that's pretty much all I wear.

I used to have sneakers that had velcro straps on them though. They were awesome.

Wow. I'm going to have to relace my shoes tomorrow to make them look less boring O.o

I use a criss-cross lace for my shoes but i dont actually tie them up properly with the loops, I just make a tight knot.

I make a loop, round, through and pull. Then take the two loops that have been created and make a normal knot with them.

I criss-cross my laces, but instead of tying them near the ankle, I reverse them to tie at the toe. It's actually kind of impressive how many people notice them...xD

I used to tie my laces behind the tongue of my shoe, so I can tuck them in. But now I have new shoes that don't work like that :p

My checkered/striped Vans are above petty wastes of time like laces. I slip them on and I'm ready to go.

Double helix lacing.

Bunny ears? Like Momiji, I just slip them on and don't bother tying and untying them everytime.

I can't stand not tying my shoelaces. I hate when my boots are loose. Criss-cross them.

Unless I wear my flops. Which I usually do. B]

in sixth grade, the style was to run the laces from the bottom of the tongue all the way up and t hen tie it up there. Our basketball coach hated this and told us to lacethem normally, and then our star player turned her ankle and he was vindicated.

I don't wwear many shoes I have to lace, but my tennis shoes are just laced like usual

That's actually impressive.

I use pretty ribbons to lace up my shoes.

I'm always straight-laced.

I usually keep mine knotted at the whoel so I can just slip them on

I wear sandals. But I lace my steel-toes up right or else the safty d00d will scorn me.

I keep them knotted up tight, but loose enough for me to slip them on and off without much hassle. My first post here and it's about how I wear my shoelaces, of all things ;)

Quick! Make a welcome thread!

I'm done relacing. Went with lattice, since it looked fairly simple and still less boring than regular old crisscross lacing.

I dunno. ....I do bunny ears and loop around and pull through. 8D I tie my shoes once and I'm set forever. xD I'm a shoe slipper on and off'er.
