U-Lace Cascade Lacing

U-Lace Cascade Lacing

A version of Cascade Lacing using U-Lace no-tie laces instead of regular shoelaces. Each row loops under the previous row, forming a “cascade” down the shoe.

Lacing Technique

• Use a single U-Lace segment to run between the bottom eyelets, with the segment peaked towards the right side.

• The next U-Lace segment begins from the next higher empty eyelet on the right side and is looped under the previously peaked row.

• That segment is then peaked before finishing in the next higher empty eyelet on the left side.

• Continue up the shoe, each U-Lace segment looping under the previously peaked row a little further to the left.

Notes

• Use the same U-Lace color throughout to replicate the look of a regular, single shoelace.

• Use several different U-Lace colors for a rainbow or multi-colored look.
