15 Amazing Ways to Tie Your Sneakers

Amazing Way to Tie Your Sneakers

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2. The laces then go straight up and are fed into the next set of eyelets up the shoe 3.
The ends are crossed over and are fed under the vertical lace section
on the opposite sides of the shoe before going straight up and into the
next set of eyelets up the shoe 4. At the top set of
eyelets, the laces can once again cross over and pass under the
straight section as shown. This not only looks consistent with the rest
of the lacing but also forms a High Lace Lock, which tightens the
lacing even more firmly.

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2. The ends are looped back under the lace where it feeds under the side of the shoe 3. The ends are then crossed over each other, then they go under and out through the next set of eyelets up the shoe 4. Steps 2 and 3 are repeated until both ends reach the top eyelets.

1. The lace runs straight across the second set of eyelets from the top of the shoe 2. Cross the ends over and feed into the fourth set of eyelets, skipping the third set 3. Continue down the shoe, two sets of eyelets at a time 4. At the bottom, run the laces vertically between the bottom and second from bottom eyelets 5. Double back and work your way back up the shoe through the vacant sets of eyelets.

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2. The left (red) end is spiralled up the left side of the shoe, with the end fed under and emerging from each eyelet 3.
The right (orange) lace is spiralled up the right side of the shoe, at
each eyelet looping through the left (blue) lace in the middle of the
shoe before feeding under and emerging from the next eyelet.

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2.
One end of the lace (orange end) runs straight up the right side, is
fed into and runs straight across the second set of eyelets 3. Both ends now run straight up the left side, each skipping one eyelet before feeding in two eyelets higher up 4. Continue running both ends across the shoe, then straight up two eyelets at a time 5. At the top of the shoe, the laces end up on the same side and the shoelace knot is tied at that point.

1. The lace runs straight across the bottom and the ends are fed into both bottom eyelets 2.
One end of the lace (orange end) runs straight up the right side,
emerges from and runs straight across the second set of eyelets 3.
The other end (red end) runs diagonally underneath and, skipping the
2nd set of eyelets, emerges from and runs straight across the 3rd set
of eyelets 4. Continue running each lace diagonally
across and up 2 sets of eyelets until one end (orange in my example)
reaches the top right eyelet 5. The other end (red in my example) then runs straight up the left side to emerge from the top left eyelet.

1. The lace runs straight across and emerges from the third set of eyelets from the bottom 2. Both ends run straight down and are fed into the second set of eyelets from the bottom 3. Both ends again run straight down and emerge from the bottom set of eyelets 4. Both ends now run straight up along the outside and are fed into the fourth set of eyelets (the first vacant pair) 5. The ends are crossed over each other, then they go under and out through the next set of eyelets up the shoe 6. Repeat step (5) until both ends reach the top.

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and is fed into rather than emerging from both bottom eyelets 2. The ends are crossed over, then inserted into the next set of eyelets up the shoe 3. This process is repeated until both ends reach the top eyelets and end up inside.

1. The lace runs straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2. Skipping two sets of eyelets, cross the ends over and feed into the fourth set of eyelets 3. Both ends now run straight down one eyelet and emerge from the third set of eyelets 4.
Continue up the shoe, each time crossing over and going up three sets
of eyelets, then straight down to emerge from the next set of eyelets
below.

1. The lace is run straight across the bottom and emerges through both bottom eyelets 2. The ends are twisted together with one complete twist in the middle of the shoe 3. The ends then continue across to the opposite sides, where they go under and out through the next set of eyelets up the shoe 4. This process is repeated until both ends reach the top eyelets.

1. The lace runs straight across the bottom and emerges from both bottom eyelets 2. Cross the ends over and feed into the 4th set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets) 3. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 5th set of eyelets 4. Cross the ends over and feed into the 2nd set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets) 5. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 3rd set of eyelets 6. Cross the ends over, feed under and emerge from the top set of eyelets (skip past 2 sets of eyelets).

1. The lace is run diagonally and emerges from the bottom left and the top right eyelets 2.
The top (red) end of the lace is zig-zagged from the top set of eyelets
down to the middle eyelets in a similar manner to the Shoe Shop Lacing 3. The bottom (orange) end of the lace is similarly zig-zagged from the bottom set of eyelets up to the middle eyelets.

1. Start
with two pairs of different colour laces, preferably the wide, flat
variety (I was lucky to receive two such pairs with my last runners!) 2. With one colour (orange in my example), lace the shoe using either Straight (Fashion) or Straight (Lazy) Lacing 3.
With the other colour (red in my example), start at the bottom of the
shoe and weave the lace in and out of the other lace until you reach
the top 4. Fold around the top lace and head back down, weaving out and in until you reach the bottom 5. Continue across the shoe until you’re out of room or out of lace, whichever comes first 6. Tuck all the loose ends of the laces into the shoe.

1. The lace runs straight across the bottom and emerges from both bottom eyelets 2. Cross the ends over and feed into the 4th set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets) 3. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 5th set of eyelets 4. Cross the ends over and feed into the 2nd set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets) 5. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 3rd set of eyelets 6. Cross the ends over, feed under and emerge from the top set of eyelets (skip past 2 sets of eyelets).

1. Take two different colour laces, each a tiny bit longer than the correct length for the shoes 2.
Cut them not quite in half, but offset by two or three centimetres. See
below for how to calculate the difference in length between the two
halves 3. Tie one shorter piece of one colour (orange
in my example) and one longer piece of the other colour (red in my
example) firmly together and trim off the excess. For extra security,
add a dab of glue. Use the remaining pieces to make the bi-colour lace
for the other shoe 4. Pull the longer (red) end out
through the bottom right eyelet, feeding from inside the shoe, until
you reach the joining knot 5. Now lace the rest of the shoe as per
Straight (Fashion) Lacing.
