This style of lacing is mainly used on our Country boots for the support that it offers. The ladder-like appearance helps lock the lace in place, which is good if you don’t want your laces to loosen over the course of the day. The laces weave horizontally and vertically, forming a secure ladder.
- Start by going underneath the two bottom eyelets and come outward. Make sure the left and right laces are even in length.
- Take your right lace and go straight up through the eyelet directly above, outside to inside. Don’t pull too much; keep it loose for now. Repeat for the left lace.
- Take your right lace and go straight across to the left, going underneath the left lace that is bridging the gap between first two eyelets. Then, run that same lace through the next eyelet up, outside to inside.
- Repeat for the left lace. Take it straight across to the right, under the right lace, then through the next eyelet up, outside to inside.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you get to the top.
