Lacing Technique

• Use one U-Lace segment to run between the bottom-left eyelet and the next higher eyelet, with the middle of the segment stretched across to the right.

• Use another U-Lace segment to run from the bottom-right eyelet across to the left, where it loops around the opposite segment in the middle of the shoe before returning to the right side, finishing at the next higher eyelet.

• 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.

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.
