How to Lace Walking Shoes

How to Lace Walking Shoes
When going for long walks or hikes through the woods, you will want to make sure your shoes are on tight. Doing this will not only make sure your shoes do not slip off, but also help keep you from injury. The first place to start when tightening your shoes is with the lacing. The lacing makes all the difference in keeping your shoes tight and your feet comfortable and safe.


Difficulty: Easy

Things You’ll Need:
  • Shoes
  • Shoe lace
Step 1
Insert the shoe lace into the bottom two holes by the toe of the shoe. Slip the lace in toward the shoe. Make sure there is an even amount of lace on both sides.
Step 2
Cross the lace from the left side over to the right so it is directly above the other side of the lace. Make sure you slip the lace down through the hole (just as you had done when starting to lace).
Step 3
Cross over the lace from the right side of the shoe so it slides through the second hole (just as you had done with the left lace).
Step 4
Pull the lace tight after each loop. This will ensure that no section in the lacing is loose and will provide the tightest, most secure fit.
Step 5
Continue this lacing and tightening through each loop. Once you have completed the lacing, insert your foot into the shoe and tie the lace. You should have a perfectly snug shoe which will not slip or fall off.
