Hexagram Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Hexagram Lacing. This purely decorative lacing forms a hexagram, or six pointed star. This geometric symbol has been used for centuries in various cultures and religions, most notably as the Jewish "Star of David".
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• Cross the ends and feed down through the third set of lugs up the shoe (skip past 1 sets of lugs).
• Run the right (blue) end diagonally up to the left, feeding up through the top left lug.
• Run the left (yellow) end in a complete loop: Straight across and up through the adjacent lug on the right side, then back across and down through the adjacent lug on the left side.
• Finally, run the left (yellow) end diagonally up to the right, feeding up through the top right lug.
Tricky to tighten
16% longer ends (approx.)
If the crossovers of the laces are carefully woven as shown, they will not only accurately depict the traditional "Star of David" but will also hold the shape of the lacing more securely.
