Twistie Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Twistie Lacing. Like a combination of Loop Back and Knotted Lacing, the laces are twisted together with a vertical overhand knot at each crossover before continuing to the other side.
• 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 under the sides and out through the next higher set of eyelets.
• Repeat until lacing is completed.

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 before crossing over each other.
For more info and animated instructions, see the eyelet version of Twistie Lacing.
