How To Lace Up Your Dress Shoes: Over Under Lacing

20120209-143919.jpg

I know you gentlemen know how to tie your tennis shoes, but how well versed are you on tying your oxfords? Assuming that some of you own a pair or two, I am here to offer you ways to lace them.

If you already know these ways great! But just in case you actually want to try them, our friends over at Ian’s Shoelace Site helps us diversify our shoe game:

Today’s laces:

Over Under Lacing
This method reduces friction, making the lacing easier to tighten and loosen while reducing wear and tear. The laces alternate between crossing Over and Under.

Lacing Technique 1 (for EVEN numbers of eyelet pairs):
1. The lace is run straight across the bottom (grey section) and the ends are fed in through both bottom eyelets.

2. The ends are crossed Under (on the inside) and emerge through the next set of eyelets up the shoe.

3. The ends are crossed Over (on the outside) and are fed in through the next set of eyelets up the shoe.

4. Repeat steps (2) and (3), alternating between crossing Under or crossing Over, until both ends reach the top eyelets.

 

Can you identify which lace is the Over and Under?
