Criss Cross Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Criss Cross Lacing. This is the "standard" method of lacing shoes and boots that come with lugs instead of eyelets. The laces simply criss-cross as they work their way up the shoe.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• At each pair of lugs, cross the ends and feed up through the next higher set of lugs. Repeat until lacing is completed.
Simple to lace
This method is the lug equivalent of Criss Cross, Over Under, Display Shoe, Left Right or Double Helix Lacing, all of which are all normally slight variations of each other due to the different directions the shoelaces run through the eyelets between the inside and outside of the shoe. Because there is no "inside" or "outside" with lugs, this lacing is like a "simplified" version of any or all of those five different lacing methods.
For more info and animated instructions, see the eyelet version of Criss Cross Lacing.
