A lug version of
Knotted Lacing. Adding an overhand knot at each crossover increases friction and keeps the lacing much firmer.
Ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
This picture of Lug Knotted Lacing was sent to me by Emily B.
1. The lace runs straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
2. The ends are crossed over each other and are then knotted with a single overhand knot, which is identical
to the Starting Knot.
3. The ends then continue across to the opposite sides, where they run up through the next set of lugs up the shoe.
4. Repeat steps (2) and (3) until both ends reach the top lugs.

Shortens lace ends (about −1%)
Knotted Lacing Theory:|
With each stage of this lacing given a single overhand knot, the result is a very firm lacing. This is of
most benefit whilst tightening, as the lower sections are less inclined to loosen in the process, making it
ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
