Lug Infinity ∞ Lacing
Specifically for shoes with lugs, this lacing resembles a series of infinity “∞” symbols. This lacing works best with thinner shoelaces because each lug needs to accommodate two passes of shoelace.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• Cross the ends, running diagonally across and down the shoe, feeding back into the bottom of the adjacent lug on the opposite side. There will already be a lace running through that lug, so this will be a tight fit.
• Run the ends straight up through those lugs, then continue straight up and through the next higher set of lugs up the shoe.
• Repeat crossing the ends and feeding up through lugs until lacing is completed.

No thick laces
52% shorter ends (approx.)
If the shoelaces are too thick to run twice through the lugs, an alternative is Lug Ladder Lacing, which looks very similar but runs the second pass of shoelace over the lugs instead of through them.

NOTE: These are approximate shoelace lengths for using this lacing on an average sized sneaker. For more accurate lengths, use the Shoelace Length Calculator.
Longer shoelaces needed than those for basic Lug Criss Cross Lacing.
Shorter ends if existing shoelaces are re-used (−52% on average).
