7 Original Ways to Tie Your Sneaker Laces

If you’re bored of always wearing the same sneakers and want to give them a nice, unique detail without spending time and money, you’ve come to the right place. There are several ways to tie laces that will make them look like no one else’s.

5-Minute Crafts will show you how to give that personal and eye-catching touch to your sneakers.

Method 1

Procedure:

1. Thread both ends of a single or double-colored shoelace through the first holes and inward. Make sure the lace is the same length on both sides.

2. Take one of the sides and thread it through the next hole, but this time, outward.

3. Bring the same side of the shoelace to the other end and thread it through the second hole, inward.

4. Take the other end of the lace again and thread it through the third hole on the same side, facing outward.

5. Thread the same shoelace through the third hole at the other end, inward.

6. Repeat the same procedure with the other lace and so on, alternately, until all the holes are finished.

7. Tie both ends of the shoelace and hide the knot under the tongue.

Method 2

Procedure:

1. Take the lace and thread it through the last and first hole on one side of the sneakers, toward the outside.

2. Thread it through the first hole on the other side, passing it inward. Next, thread it through the second hole, outward.

3. Bring the same side of the lace to the second hole at the other end, passing it inward.

4. Wrap both pieces of the shoelace that are already on top of the sneaker underneath.

5. Thread the shoelace through the third hole on the same side.

6. Repeat the previous steps, always using the same piece until you finish with all the holes. Finally, tie both ends as usual.

Method 3

Procedure:

1. Thread the ends of 1 or 2 colored shoelaces through the first holes of your sneakers, toward the outside.

2. Take one side of the lace and thread it through the third hole of the other end, inward. Repeat the same step with the other side.

3. Thread one side of the shoelace through the last hole at the other end, also inward. Repeat again with the other side.

4. Take one of the sides and thread it through the second to last hole, on the same side, outward.

5. Thread the same lace through the second hole at the other end, inward.

6. Take the other side of the shoelace and thread it through the second to last hole on the same side of the tennis shoe, outward.

7. Bring the same side of the lace to the second hole of the sneaker and thread it in.

8. Tie both ends of the shoelace and hide the knot behind the tongue.

Method 4

Procedure:

  1. Using 2 different colored laces, thread them through the holes on the same side as if you were forming a loop in each hole.
  2. Then join the shoelaces together by threading the loops interleaved through each one.
  3. Thread the remaining shoelace through the last hole, outward, and then through the last loop.

Method 5

Procedure:

1. Thread the ends of 1 or 2 different colored laces through the first holes of your sneaker, inward.

2. Take one side of the shoelace and thread it through the second hole on the same side, toward the outside.

3. Then take it to the second hole on the other end and thread it in.

4. Take the other end of the shoelace and thread it through the third hole on the other side, passing it outward.

5. Bring it back to the other end, passing it through the third hole, inward.

6. Repeat the same procedure, alternating the laces until all the holes are completed. Finally, tie a knot and hide it behind the tongue.

Method 6

Procedure:

1. Thread both ends of the laces through the last 2 holes on each side of the sneaker, outward.

2. Then thread them through the first holes, passing them inward.

3. Take one side of the shoelace and thread it through the second hole on the same side, outward.

4. Bring it to the second hole on the other side of the sneaker, passing it inward.

5. Bring the same side of the shoelace to the third hole at the other end, passing it inward.

6. Take the other piece and thread it through the fourth hole on the same side, outward.

7. Then take it to the fourth hole on the other side and thread it in.

8. Repeat the same procedure with the other shoelace until all the holes are completed, and finally hide the ends of the laces inside the sneaker.

Method 7

Procedure:

1. Take the shoelace and thread it through the first holes, toward the outside.

2. Then pass one of the sides through the third hole at the other end, inward, and then through the fourth hole on the same side, outward.

3. Bring the same side of the shoelace to the second hole at the other end and pass it inward. Repeat the same with the third hole, but outward.

4. Bring the same side of the shoelace to the last hole and pass it inward.

5. Thread the other side of the shoelace through the second hole at the opposite end, downward. Make sure it goes under one of the laces. Then thread it through the next hole, outward.

6. Bring the same shoelace to the second hole at the opposite end, alternating with the other shoelace. Pass it inward and bring it to the top of the sneaker, then tuck it away.
