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 seven different eyelet lacing methods:
- Criss Cross Lacing
- Over Under Lacing
- Display Shoe Lacing
- CAF Combat Boot Lacing
- Left Right Lacing
- Double Helix Lacing
- Locked Double Helix Lacing
All of these eyelet lacing methods are slight variations of each other due to the different directions the shoelaces run through the eyelets between the inside and outside of the shoe. With lugs, there is no “inside” or “outside”. As a result, Lug Criss Cross Lacing is effectively a simplified version of any or all of those seven different lacing methods.
