Your Handy Pocket Reference!

Ian's Laces App is your handy pocket reference of how to tie and lace shoes. Now, you'll never be stuck for shoelace style or technique. And if someone does ask: "How did you do that?", the answer is at your fingertips, not your feet!

This huge compilation was first brought to the iPhone and iPod Touch back in Aug-2009. There have since been three major updates, with this latest release in Jul-2014.

Ian's Laces App 4.0.0 - Lacing Details Lacing Details:

Each lacing method contains a hi-res image of that lacing on a typical sneaker, shoe or boot. This lets you visualize how the lacing might look on different types of footwear, plus the different pictures make it easier to scroll quickly to your favourite method by remembering the shoe style.

Ian's Laces App 4.0.0 - Lacing Diagrams Lacing Diagrams:

Each lacing method contains one or more large, clear lacing diagrams. On a typical iPhone or iPod Touch, these diagrams are more than large enough to be placed alongside your shoe to simplify the task of reproducing a lacing method.

Ian's Laces App 4.0.0 - Create-A-Lace Create-A-Lace:

Unlike a real shoe, our virtual shoe is a super-fast way to experiment with shoe lacing. Use your finger to drag the shoelace from eyelet to eyelet to create your own custom lacing method. A quick finger can create a style in just seconds!

The greater screen area of the iPad allows more details to fit on screen at the same time. Here, the lacing diagram and lacing instructions sit comfortably side-by-side instead of on separate screens.

Reviews of Ian's Laces App
Ian's Laces App - Miles of Styles!

Ian's Laces App was featured in the App Store on 10-Nov-2009, and within two days had risen to #1 in the U.S. "Reference" category.

The following are genuine, unsolicited reviews of Ian's Laces, as submitted to the App Store by satisified buyers. It's terrific to read that people really appreciate this app!

What a cool application- really unique content, great graphics, and interesting interface with lots of cool skins. Even I can pimp out my trainers now!

This app is awesome! All shoelacing possibilites are in this one convenient app, which is great. I love it and would highly recommend this app to anyone.

A really fun app that gives you a collection of fun new ways to lace up your shoes. I may be too old for such nonsense, but that didn't stop me from trying them out. I also was able to share the app with my son (12) and he loves it too!

Very informative and useful. Nice attention to detail. Mom, Dad, and 17 yr. old daughter have used it and give Ian's Laces three thumbs up!!!

I bought this app to fix the problem I was having with my work boots binding at the bend. I ended up changing the lacing on my running shoes also. Great app! The kicker is that my 8 year old son LOVES this! He has now changed the lacing in all his shoes. Before he treated all his shoes like slip ons and would always end up destroying the backs. Now he happily ties them to show the lacing and keeps the shoes looking nice.

A simple shoelace app and this guy went all out; I wish other app developers were more like this guy. I've deleted apps due to their crappyness. I used this app today on my new pair of dress shoes.
