U-Lace Hill Valley Lacing

A version of Hill Valley Lacing using U-Lace no-tie laces instead of regular shoelaces. Pairs of rows are looped around each other, the peaked rows forming 'hills' and the dipped rows forming 'valleys'. The name is also a tribute to the "Back to the Future" movies.

Lacing Technique

• Run one U-Lace segment straight across the bottom eyelets, peaking in the middle to form a 'hill'.

• Run a second U-Lace segment straight across the next higher pair of eyelets, dipping in the middle to form a 'valley', which loops under the 'hill' on the row below.

• Continue up the shoe two rows at a time, with each pair of rows laced with two U-Lace segments similarly looped around each other.

• On shoes with odd numbers of eyelet pairs, finish with a single U-Lace segment running straight across the top eyelets.

Notes

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

• Alternate two different U-Lace colors for a bi-color look.

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