About the Over Under Method
One of our favorite shoe lacing styles is the Over-Under. It results in a column of symmetrical X’s grounded by a straight bar. This style looks best on shoes that have closed lacing — meaning the quarters of the shoes meet in the middle. This style is solid and easier to tighten. Note: If you have an odd number of eyelet pairs, begin by lacing the shoelace under the facing of the shoe. You’ll begin at Step 3 to create an X-shape as your first step.
