Hash Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Hash Lacing. When used on modern boots and sneakers with a wide gap between the sides, the result resembles a diagonal series of hash “#” symbols.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and in through the top of both bottom lugs.
• At each pair of lugs, cross the ends and feed in through the top of the next higher set of lugs. Repeat until lacing is completed.
Harder to tighten
The essential difference between Lug Hash Lacing and basic Lug Criss Cross Lacing is that the shoelaces take the opposite path through the lugs – that is – feeding in through the top (heel end) of the lugs and out through the bottom (toe end) of the lugs.
