Lacing Technique – even numbers of eyelet pairs

• Use a single U-Lace segment to lace a medium diagonal, starting from the bottom-left eyelet and ending two rows higher (skip past one row).

• Continue up the shoe with steep diagonals, each starting from the next lower eyelet and ending three rows higher up (skip past two rows) until the second-from-top row.

• Lace a final medium diagonal, starting from the next lower eyelet and ending on the top row (skip past one row).

• Fill the rest of the shoe with shallow diagonals, each starting from the lowest empty eyelet and ending on the next higher row.

Notes

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

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