Double Sided Lacing
Using two flat shoelaces on top of each other, or using a single shoelace with different colors on the front and back, will alternate those colors up the shoe.
• Start with two different colored flat shoelaces, each the correct length for that shoe.
• Hold both flat shoelaces together to resemble a double-thickness, double-sided shoelace.
• Using that double-sided shoelace, lace the shoe normally as per Criss Cross Lacing. At each set of eyelets, alternate the color that sits uppermost.
• At the top of the shoe, once again hold the two ends at each side together as though they are one double-thickness shoelace and tie a regular Shoelace Knot.
Harder to tighten
Harder to tie
• When using two laces, ensure that they are fairly thin because each eyelet has to accommodate two layers of shoelace.
• To make tying easier, leave the ends of one color shoelace tucked into the top of the shoe and only tie with the remaining ends of the other color.
