Knotted Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Knotted Lacing. Adding a half knot at each crossover increases friction and keeps the lacing much firmer. Ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• At each set of lugs, the ends are tied with a simple half knot in the middle of the shoe.
• The ends then continue across to the opposite sides, where they run up through the next higher set of lugs.
• Repeat until lacing is completed.
Keeps lacing tight
Harder to loosen
2% shorter ends (approx.)
With each stage of this lacing given a single half knot, the result is a very firm lacing. This is of most benefit during tightening, as the lower sections are less inclined to loosen in the process, making it ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
