I went out the other day, because my favorite pair of shoes were getting worn for a new pair and came home missing the way I had the others laced:
So I sat down and recreated the look as follows:
Its a modified (read: better) "Lattice".
Pros: You lose a lot of shoe lace length and wont have to re-tie your shoes, because you'll just sew down the ends.
Cons: You lose a lot of shoe lace length and wont be able to re-tie your shoes, because you'll just sew down the ends.
With the two pointed ends, weave them from the first hole through the laces to the fourth hole. One will go over under over under while the other goes under over under over. Do this for both the first hole to the fourth hole and from the second to the fifth, so that there is a overall weaved look like below, where I have the last lace to finish up (and send to the fifth hole on the left.
