How to Lace Vans

How to lace Vans? Lacing your vans may seem like a daunting task, but it's actually quite simple! With just a few easy steps, you'll be lacing your vans like a pro. 

Brief history of Vans.

Vans shoes have a long and rich history, dating back to 1966. The company was founded by two brothers, Paul and James Van Doren, who opened the first Vans store in Anaheim, California. Since then, Vans has become one of the most iconic shoe brands in the world, beloved by skaters, surfers, and fashionistas alike.

Why we like Vans.

Vans shoes are known for their simple, classic design. The company's signature style is the vulcanized rubber sole, which provides excellent grip and durability. Vans also offer a wide range of styles, from the classic slip-on to high-top sneakers. No matter your personal style, there's a Vans shoe for you!

How to lace up Vans.

Suppose you're looking to add a little more personality to your Vans. There are many ways to lace them, so get creative and experiment until you find a look you love! Here are a few of our favorite ways to lace Vans:

Over under lacing.

This is the most popular way to lace Vans shoes. 

  1. Thread your lace down through the two bottom eyelets of your Vans - not up from underneath.
  2. Take the lace on the left-hand side over to the right and down through the second eyelet.
  3. Repeat this step with the other lace. Keep threading the laces one at a time down into each eyelet.
  4. Once you're at the top of your shoes, you can tie a simple knot that slips behind the tongue or shop for a pair of Kicks Shoelace anchors for the ultimate clean finish.

Tip: Make sure the laces are the same length on either side to start and thread your laces down through the eyelets and not up from underneath.

Bar lacing.

This is a straightforward way to lace your Vans, and it's perfect if you're in a hurry.

  1. Take the end of the left lace and thread it on the inside of the shoe through the next eyelet then over to the right side and down through the eyelet.
  2. Then take the end of the right lace and thread it on the inside of the shoe through the next available eyelet then over to the left side and down through the eyelet.
  3. Repeat this process with both ends of the laces, running them up inside your Vans, through the following eyelet, across and down through the adjacent eyelet until lacing is completed.
  4. Once you're at the top of your shoes, you can tie a simple knot that slips behind the tongue or shop for a pair of Kicks Shoelace anchors for the ultimate clean finish.

Tip: Remember that the end of each lace runs up the inside of the shoe through the eyelet then out and across.

Diamond lacing.

The diamond lacing technique is a great way to add a touch of personality to your shoes. It's similar to the criss-cross lacing technique, but the laces are crossed in the middle to create a diamond shape. 

  1. Thread your laces under through the bottom two eyelets of your Vans - under and out!
  2. Take the lace on the left, over to the right and down through the third eyelet.
  3. Thread the same lace up on the inside of the shoe through the next eyelet then over to the left side and down through the second eyelet.
  4. Repeat this process with the same lace – thread up the inside of the shoe, over to the adjacent side and under until the lacing is completed.
  5. It’s now time to create the diamond pattern.
  6. Thread the lace diagonally over the first lace, then under the second to create a weaving pattern.
  7. Thread the lace down through the third eyelet on the left side then up on the inside through the next eyelet.
  8. Bring the lace back on itself to the right underneath the second lace and over the first and thread down through the second eyelet.
  9. Thread the lace up on the inside through the next eyelet under and over the laces then through the eyelet on the left side, building on your weave pattern.
  10. Bring the lace back on itself and repeat until you reach the top of the shoe.
  11. Once you're at the top of your shoes, you can tie a simple knot that slips behind the tongue or shop for a pair of Kicks Shoelace anchors for the ultimate clean finish.

Tip: This is a difficult lacing style so, take your time. Once you've completed the first lace focus on the weave pattern to stay on track.
