The different ways to lace your shoes

I bought some new shoes and had to lace them up. There always seemed to be different ways to lace shoes, and sure enough there’s a website that explains and rates twelve different ways to lace your shoes. For those who cannot see the link, here it is again: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/lacing.htm.

Which way do you lace your shoes? I’m trying the “Straight (Fashion) Lacing” method.

While yer at it, get some cool shoelaces on amazon.com:

i’m pretty fond of the bow-tie lacing. it’s ‘cute’. speaking of shoe lacing, this page recently changed my life: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/slipping.htm turns out i had been tying my shoes wrong all my life. now my bows stay tied all day!

I use different lacing methods for different types of shoes. My dress shoes get a more formal lacing while my sneakers get a more casual lacing.

In actuality, it’s been a while since I’ve worn shoes with laces. Lately I’ve been drawn to Josef Seibel sandals and clogs by Timerland. No lacing required!

Check out the following page http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/lacingmethods.htm I think I know what you mean about bar-lacing, but see “Straight [Fashion”> Lacing” or “Straight [Lazy”> Lacing” to compare for yourself.

Can you use one lace to bar lace a shoe? I used one blue lace to bar lace one of my Phat Farms, but I wanna know if that is okay. On some instructions it was using two.
