How To Do Bars With Shoelaces On Shoes
Have you ever wondered how to do bars with shoelaces on shoes? This new trend, known as “straight lacing” or “bar lacing,” has become increasingly popular because it creates a neat and comfortable look while shortening laces. Here you will learn how to bars with shoelaces.
To do bars with shoelaces, you will need:
- Pair of shoes without shoelaces
Pair of shoelaces (matching or two separate colors)
Feed one shoelace into the bottom eyelets. Choose one color shoelace and beginning at the bottom of the shoe (towards the toes), inset the shoelace into the two bottom opposite eyelets. The bottom opposite eyelets should have a shoelace that appears straight, like a bar.
Run the shoelace up each side of the shoe. The lace should be even so the same amount of lace is on the right and left side of the shoe. Take the left shoelace and bring it up the left side and through the left eyelet after skipping one. Do the same on the right side, going up into the right eyelet while skipping one.
Run both ends straight across the shoe to form bars. String the shoelaces through the opposite eyelets and up again, skipping another eyelet on each side. Continue this motion until you reach the top, always skipping an eyelet in between.
- Use the second shoelace and repeat steps one through three. This will create bars in the eyelets you skipped the first time around. When this is done in separate colors, it can create a unique affect. Once you reach the top of the shoe, tie the pair of shoelaces into a knot and skip beneath the laces.
- To do bars with shoelaces, you will need a pair of shoes with an even amount of eyelet pairs.
- The shoelaces can also be tied like in a bow at the top instead of hidden beneath the laces.
- Bars with shoelaces are a popular look and can be worn with sneakers, tennis shoes, Converse and other types of footwear.
- In order to do bars with shoelaces, you will need to purchase flat shoelaces verses round laces.
