Winter Solstice Lacing
A fairly useless method, with the laces taking the shortest path through all the eyelets and with hardly any segments visible – reminiscent of the sun's path in mid-winter.
• Begin straight across on the inside (grey section) and out through the bottom eyelets.
• Both ends run straight up the sides, alternately feeding in or out through eyelets until the top of the shoe.
Very loose fit
58% longer ends (approx.)
• This is not really intended as a useful lacing method – rather, it's a novelty lacing that's meant to be just a bit of fun during Winter Solstice festivities.
• This lacing uses minimal length of shoelace, which will result in much longer loops and loose ends. Besides changing to shorter shoelaces, another solution is to tuck the loops and ends under the bottom horizontal – as shown in the second photo below.
