Twistie Lacing (lug version)
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• At each eyelet pair, the ends are given one complete twist in the middle of the shoe before continuing to the opposite sides.
• The ends are fed up through the next higher set of lugs.
• Repeat until lacing is completed.
Keeps lacing tight
Harder to loosen
Lug Twistie Lacing looks best on shoes with thick, round shoelaces – especially light colored laces on dark colored shoes. These accentuate the fact that the shoelaces are twisted together rather than simply crossing over each other.
