The four ends of the two shoelaces end up at the top of the shoe.
This picture of of Lug Double Lacing was sent to me by Meredith P.
1. Start with two different coloured laces, each shorter than the original laces from that shoe.
2. Feed one lace (purple in my example) straight across the bottom and up through both bottom lugs.
3. Cross the ends over and, skipping one set of lugs, feed up through the third set of lugs.
4. Continue crossing over and going up two sets of lugs at a time until you reach either the top or second from
top set of lugs.
5. Take the other lace (orange in my example) and, starting from the second set of lugs, repeat steps (2)
through (4) until the remaining lugs are laced with the second lace.
