U-Lace Lightning Lacing

A version of Lightning Lacing using U-Lace no-tie laces instead of regular shoelaces. Looks a bit like a lightning bolt.

Lacing Technique

• Begin with one U-Lace segment running diagonally from the bottom-left eyelet all the way to the top-right eyelet.

• The next U-Lace segment runs diagonally up and left from the bottom-right eyelet and the next highest empty eyelet on the left hand side.

• Each of the remaining U-Lace segments similarly runs diagonally up and left between the next highest empty eyelets.
