Double Lacing (lug version)

A lug version of Double Lacing. One color shoelace runs through the odd eyelet pairs, another color runs through the even eyelet pairs. Finishes with four lace ends, which can then be tied creatively.

Lacing Technique

• Start with two different colored shoelaces, each shorter than the original laces from that shoe.

• Feed one shoelace (purple in my example) straight across the bottom and up through both bottom lugs.

• Cross the ends and feed up through the third set of lugs (skip past one set of lugs).

• Continue crossing over and going up two sets of lugs at a time until you reach either the top or second from top set of lugs.

• Take the other shoelace (orange in my example) and, starting from the second set of lugs from the bottom, work upwards through the remaining lugs until lacing is completed.

Notes

If your shoes have odd numbers of sets of lugs (such as the 5 sets in the above diagram), one lace will pass through more lugs than the other. The two shoelaces will therefore need to be different lengths.

For more info and animated instructions, see the eyelet version of Double Lacing.
