Using two shoelaces per shoe splits the lacing into two segments, each of which can be laced up as tightly or loosely as required for comfort.
• Begin with two shoelaces, each about half the length of the original shoelaces.
• Begin straight across on the inside (grey section) and out through the bottom eyelets.
• At each eyelet pair, cross the ends, feeding under the sides and out through the next higher set of eyelets. Repeat until about the middle of the shoe.
• Starting from the next higher set of eyelets, the second lace is similarly laced to the top of the shoe.
• Each “segment” is then tightened to suit your preference and knotted separately.

• This page shows two segments, divided fairly equally, each laced with Criss Cross Lacing. You may instead use different sized segments, different lacing methods – even different colored shoelaces on each segment to create a bi-color lacing (as seen below).
• Also referred to as “Zoned Lacing”.
Shoelace Lengths for Segmented Lacing
|Pairs of eyelets used by segment:||2||3||4||5||6||7||8|
|Length needed for that segment:||71 cm
Shorter shoelaces needed for each segment than for the whole shoe.
Longer ends if existing shoelaces are re-used (+52% on average).
