U-Lace Roman Lacing

U-Lace Roman Lacing

A version of Roman Lacing using U-Lace no-tie laces instead of regular shoelaces. Alternating “X-I-X-I” on top of the shoe looks a little like Roman numerals.

Lacing Technique

• Use two U-Lace segments to lace two rows of eyelets with an “X”, one segment running up and left, the other running up and right.

• Use a single U-Lace segment to lace straight across the next pair of eyelets, forming an “I” (viewed from the side).

• Continue up the shoe, alternately lacing two pairs of eyelets with an “X” or one pair of eyelets with an “I”.

Notes

• On shoes with 4, 7, 10, 13 etc. pairs of eyelets, begin with an “I” at the bottom.

• 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.
