Spider Web Lacing

Like an angled version of Ladder Lacing, this decorative method is also worn on military boots. The laces weave vertically and diagonally, forming an intricate "web".

Lacing Technique

• Begin straight across on the inside (grey section) and out through the second-from-bottom set of eyelets.

• The ends run straight down the sides and in through the bottom set of eyelets.

• The ends cross over and run diagonally up and out through the next vacant set of eyelets.

• At each eyelet pair, the ends run straight down and feed under the vertical lace sections below before crossing over and continuing diagonally up and out through the next higher set of eyelets. Repeat until lacing is completed.

Notes

• This lacing looks particularly effective on high boots with many eyelets, especially when contrasting laces are used.

• Tall boots with a very wide spacing between the sides display the maximum area of woven shoelace "spider web".
