Shoe stores and photographers often use this inside-out version of
Criss Cross Lacing on their display shoes in order to finish with the ends neatly hidden inside the shoe.
• Begin straight across on the outside (grey section) and in through the bottom eyelets.
• At each eyelet pair, cross the ends, feeding in through the next higher set of eyelets. Repeat until
lacing is completed.
• At the top, the ends remain hidden inside the shoe.
This lacing is sometimes referred to as "Canadian Lacing", based on its use by some Canadian ice hockey players
who believe that it creates a tighter fit for ice skates.
This comes at the expense of being more difficult to tighten because it's harder to get fingers under the laces
from the bottom of the shoe and pull up.
On the flip side, this lacing can be loosened more easily because it's easier to get fingers under the laces from
the top of the shoe and pull down.
Inside-out version, with ends emerging from eyelets and knotted across top.
