How To Flat Lace Tennis Shoes
A popular method of lacing up shoes among tennis stars is known as flat lacing, and even though learning how to flat lace tennis shoes is tricky, it is very advantageous. A benefit is that it prevents pressure on the top of the foot, and the laces can be easily cut in the event of a tennis injury.
To flat lace tennis shoes, you will need
- A pair of laced tennis shoes
- Start lacing up the shoes at the bottom set of holes (where the toes are) . Push one end of the shoelace into each hole, and pull until there is pressure in the laces. Both laces should be inside the tennis shoes.
- Now, push the right shoelace through the next hole from under the hole. Pull it, and cross the same shoelace to the left eyelet on the left side so that it is lying flat against the inside of the tennis shoes.
- Ignore the next hole, and instead you should push the lace up through the second hole, from the inside of the shoes. Pull the lace to make it taut. Move the lace to the right side and push down until the flat lace is tight. It should again be lying flat against the shoe, and hanging inside.
- Now, skip the next hole on the right side (in the same manner that you skipped the hole in step three) and push the lace up through the second hole that you reach, and pull to make it taut. Continue this method until you reach the top of the shoe, and leave the excess lace hanging out.
- Go back to the bottom of the shoe. Flat lace up the tennis shoes with the right lace (in the same manner that you laced up the right lace).
- When you reach the top, tie the shoelaces like you normally would.
