Double Back Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Double Back Lacing. Although terribly awkward to tighten, this method looks interesting, holds very firmly, and can also be used if you're desperate to shorten long lace ends.

Lacing Technique:
• Begin straight across (grey section) and down through the second set of lugs from the top of the shoe.
• Cross the ends over feed down through the fourth set of lugs, skipping the third set.
• Continue down the shoe two sets of lugs at a time.
• At the bottom, double back and work back up the shoe, feeding up through the vacant sets of lugs.

Terribly awkward
