Starburst Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Starburst Lacing. With all vertical segments hidden inside the lugs and all diagonal segments on the outside crossing at the middle of the shoe, the result looks like a Starburst.
Lacing Technique – ODD numbers of lug pairs
• Begin straight across just below the middle of the shoe (grey section) and up through the middle set of lugs.
• Cross the ends diagonally downwards, running under the middle section, then feed down through the next vacant set of lugs below the middle of the shoe.
• Cross the ends diagonally upwards, running under the middle section, then feed up through the next vacant set of lugs above the middle of the shoe.
• Continue running diagonally downwards and upwards with progressively taller crossovers until lacing is completed.
Top opens wide
41% shorter ends (approx.)
This lacing method, like most decorative methods, is more difficult to tighten. Luckily, this method has the advantage that the top is like a V-neck tee-shirt. Once the knot is untied, the top of the shoe can be opened wide to easily slip the foot in or out without needing to loosen or re-tighten all of the lacing.
