Remember when you first learned to tie your shoes? Tying that first knot seemed really complicated at first, but it became automatic over time.
Many of us still tie our laces the same way as we learned as a kid, never experimenting with other styles.
Did you know that there are nearly 2 trillion shoelace styles from just six eyelets?! And that doesn’t even include the different ways to knot them either.
So, with this in mind, heres a cool way to lace shoes for you to try today.
Note: the shoe lacing technique in this guide can be done using any of our laces.
Ladder lacing is great on high boots with lots of eyelets, especially when you have contrasting colors to use. They are quite tough to tighten at first, but this ensures that they stay very tight all day long. Definitely try it to give your boots a distinctive look.
Here’s how to do it.
- Start straight along the inside of the shoe and thread the lace out through the bottom eyelets.
- Run the ends of the laces up the side of the shoe and thread through the next set of eyelets leaving a gap between the shoe and lace.
- Then run the shoelace across the shoe and feed them through the gap under the opposite lace.
- Continue up the shoe and through the next set of eyelets
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 until complete
- Once you reach the top, you can feed the laces under the tongue before tying or use a pair of our shoelace anchors to secure the laces.
Mixing up your shoe lacing style or swapping in different colour laces is great way to add an original look to your sneakers.Whether you're looking for a different colour or you're replacing a beat-up pair of shoelaces you’ll find a variety of no-tie laces, styles and colours in our collections.
