U-Lace Hill Valley Lacing
A version of Hill Valley Lacing using U-Lace no-tie laces instead of regular shoelaces. Pairs of rows are looped around each other, the peaked rows forming “hills” and the dipped rows forming “valleys”. The name is also a tribute to the “Back to the Future” movies.
• Run one U-Lace segment straight across the bottom eyelets, peaking in the middle to form a “hill”.
• Run a second U-Lace segment straight across the next higher pair of eyelets, dipping in the middle to form a “valley”, which loops under the “hill” on the row below.
• Continue up the shoe two rows at a time, with each pair of rows laced with two U-Lace segments similarly looped around each other.
• On shoes with odd numbers of eyelet pairs, finish with a single U-Lace segment running straight across the top eyelets.
• 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.
