Lacing Technique

• The bottom row of eyelets is simply laced straight across with a single U-Lace segment.

• Use two U-Lace segments to lace a tall “X” from eyelet row 2 to row 4 (skip past one row). One segment runs up and left, the other runs up and right.

• Use a third U-Lace segment to lace straight across the middle of the tall “X”, completing one asterisk.

• Continue up the shoe, using sets of three U-Lace segments to lace another asterisk between rows 5–7.

• On shoes with 10 or more eyelets, continue lacing asterisks between rows 8–10, 11–13, 14–16, etc.

• If necessary, complete the lacing with a single U-Lace segment straight across the top eyelets.

Notes

• Use the same U-Lace color throughout to replicate the look of a regular, single shoelace.

• Alternate two different U-Lace colors for a bi-color look.

• Use several different U-Lace colors for a rainbow or multi-colored look.
