Supernova Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Supernova Lacing. Like two “starbursts” on top of each other – one on the outside, the other on the inside. Needs the maximum length of shoelace and is useful for “shortening” long laces.
Lacing Technique – EVEN numbers of lug pairs
• Begin straight across (grey section) and up through the set of lugs just below the middle of the shoe.
• Cross the ends diagonally upwards, then feed down through the next vacant set of lugs above the middle of the shoe.
• Cross the ends diagonally downwards, then feed up through the next vacant set of lugs below the middle of the shoe.
• Continue running diagonally upwards and downwards with progressively taller crossovers until lacing is completed.

This lacing method, like most decorative methods, is more difficult to tighten. However, this method has the advantage that the top is like a V-neck garment. 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.
