Everyone remembers how in childhood they learned to tie their shoelaces. This skill is fixed very quickly. True, laces tend to untie spontaneously. There are several ways to prevent this.
The essence of this lacing is that an additional knot is made on each tie. This lacing is mainly used for ski boots, rollers.
The lacing starts from the bottom holes on the shoe. So, the lace is threaded through the bottom holes, and the ends come out. For the holes above, the laces intersect. Moreover, for the fortress, the intersection can be made double. After crossing, the ends of the lace are parted in different directions and threaded through the holes.
This lacing continues all the way to the top of the boot. The knotted lacing is very strong. Moreover, it is difficult to weaken it.
"Straight lacing in European style" or "Ladder lacing"
This type of lacing provides a good hold. However, at the very beginning, the lacing may look ugly due to the wide gap between the holes. For this type of lacing, it is best to choose shoes that have a small gap between the holes.
First, the lace is passed through the bottom holes, and the ends are pulled out. Next, one (first) end of the lace is passed crosswise through the next upper hole and passed to the side.
The other end of the lace is passed crosswise, passing one hole in the lacing and also passed to the side. After that, the first end of the lace is passed crosswise, passing one lacing hole at the top and passed to the side. Thus, lacing is performed alternately with one or the other end of the lace.
As a result of lacing, a ladder is formed in the gap between the holes.
Straight (fashion) lacing
The lace is pulled through the bottom holes: both ends are pulled into the boot. Then one (first) end of the lace rises from the right upwards, comes out of the upper right hole and is threaded into the left one.
The other end rises up through one hole, pushes out from the left side, and slides into the right hole. The lacing continues until one of the ends reaches the top hole. The other end of the lace exits through the second hole.
This type of lacing gives the boots a nice and tidy look. And certainly the laces tied in this way will not come out. However, lacing is done only on boots with an even number of holes (4, 6, 8, and so on).
To keep the laces from coming loose, they must be made from natural materials. Synthetic laces are often slippery: this makes them difficult to tie and do not hold.
