Twistie Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Twistie Lacing. Similar to Lug Loop Back Lacing with full twists instead of half twists, forming vertical half knots similar to the horizontal ones in Lug Knotted Lacing.
• 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.

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.
