Most recently, the question of how to tie the laces beautifully on sneakers or any other shoes did not really bother anyone. However, the situation changed dramatically with the advent of bright shoelaces. Of course, due to the combination of different colors, the "portion" of attention from others only increases. Therefore, this topic is more relevant than ever, especially with the arrival of the long-awaited spring.
Classic of the genre
Almost every day we tie our shoelaces the way adults taught us as children. Therefore, this method is rightly called the classical one. The lace is passed through the bottom holes of the sneaker and brought out. After that, the ends need to be crossed, and passed from the inside out through the holes.
In order to tie the shoelaces with a cross, you must carefully count the number of holes for the shoelaces. If the number is even, then lacing must be done on the outside, and if the number is odd, on the inside.
The lace must be tucked into the bottom row and at the same time distribute the length so that the ends are the same. If the ends of the lace are outside at the tying stage, then they must be tucked into the hole in the same way. Thus, crosses will be formed alternately. If you use this method of tying, then the laces will last much longer. Tested in practice by many lovers in various ways to tie shoelaces.
Usually in the morning everyone is in a hurry to work or study. Therefore, everyone is accustomed to economically approach the consumption of morning time. One of the fastest ways to tie your shoelaces is with a snake. This type of lacing does not involve tying at the end with the usual bow. It will take you no more than one minute to complete such lacing.
So, at one end of the lace you need to tie a tight knot, and its size should be slightly larger than the hole for the lace. Then you need to pass it through the upper hole so that the knot is inside the boot. The other end of the lace must be threaded into the opposite upper hole inside the shoe, then brought up through the second hole on the opposite side. Similarly, you need to thread both laces to the bottom. This will result in two rows:upper straight and lower oblique. The free end must be passed between the rows to the top, tightened and tucked behind the shaft. With a little practice, you will master this lacing technique in no time.
If you are a classicist, then this is the "neatest" way to tie your shoelaces. More this type of lacing is known as internal or hidden. On the outside, you see the perfect horizontal stripes, while all the weaving is hidden from view on the inside.
One end of the lace must be stretched to the very top, and the other end through all the holes of the sneaker. This method is ideal only if your shoes have an even number of pairs of holes. It won't be easy to align the tails of the laces, however, if you try, the lacing will look neat and stylish.
One of the most basic ways of tying shoelaces, also known as "hidden lacing".
The lace must be threaded into the bottom row of holes, after which its ends will be inside the boot or sneaker. Bring one end up, and put the other end in a snake so that the horizontal lines are on top of the shoe, and the vertical lines are inside. This method can only be used if the shoe has an even number of lace holes.
There are different ways to tie shoelaces. One ofthe most creative - ladder. Looks neat and very original. All that is needed is to arm yourself with a long cord. You must first fill the lace into the lower holes so that both ends are outside. After that, distribute the length of the lace evenly. Then you need to fill each of the ends into a nearby hole. As soon as the end of the lace is inside the shoe (sneaker), it is necessary to cross and insert the lace into the opposite hole (diagonally). The laces will come out through the same holes through which they were tucked in. Continue the lacing process in the same way. The lacing, made in this form, is one of the strongest, but it is quite difficult to tighten it tightly over the leg.
But lovers of tight tightening of laces on shoes need to remember this method. Thanks to this lacing, the life of the laces is extended.
You need to start traditionally, but at the stage of crossing the laces, you need to make some kind of knot imitation, as shown in the photo. Since the lace will not tighten tightly into the knot, it is necessary to tuck it into the next hole. This will form a knot.
There are many ways to tie shoelaces, but one cannot fail to mention another very original type of lacing: "spiral".
It is necessary to thread the lace through the lower holes, and bring the ends out and align them in length. Equal ends cross and twistone around the other two times so that a spiral is formed. Then pass in the same way through the other holes of the boot to the outside. Repeat the steps until the lace fills all the free holes in the boot. This type of lacing, made with white laces on black shoes, looks quite original and catchy.
In order to perform the easiest original lacing method, you need to choose two pairs of identical laces that differ in color. For example, you can take white and black shoelaces to create a contrast. First, take one white lace and one black. Sew them so that they do not form an overly thick layer or knot. For convenience, cut off the caps from each lace, including so that in the future they do not rub the leg when worn. The resulting two-color laces must be laced in any way you like so that the joint (seam) is not visible.
This method is relevant only if there is a wide field for lacing on sneakers or other shoes. You need to buy flat but tight laces.
The first lace is threaded through the holes of the sneaker in a simple direct way. The other must be threaded in a vertical way, while observing the sequence of colors. Of course, this type of lacing will cause a lot of trouble, it will take a lot of time to complete it. However, the result will only please you. At the same time prepare yourself mentallyto the fact that when you remove the shoes, the pattern will be deformed. Therefore, you will have to constantly monitor the "laying" of the laces.
