Spider Web Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Spider Web Lacing. Another decorative lacing method used on military boots, which is like Lug Ladder Lacing running at an angle, creating a woven web of shoelace.
• Begin straight across (grey section) and down through the second set of lugs from the bottom.
• The ends continue straight down through the bottom set of lugs.
• Cross the ends, running diagonally across and up the shoe, skipping one set of lugs before feeding into the top of the next vacant set of lugs.
• Feed the ends down through the lugs, then continue down and across the front of the next lower set of lugs.
• Loop the ends under the vertical sections of lace where they emerge at the bottom of those lugs.
• Repeat crossing diagonally up the shoe, vertically down the shoe and looping under the vertical sections, until lacing is completed.
