Different Lacing techniques

Wonder how some of these will do with a skate, might try some experimenting today:

1)

Features:
Allows more flex
Loose fit
Harder to tighten

2)



Evens out pressure
Reduces snagging
Messy look

3)

Features:
Keeps lacing tight
Assists tightening
Harder to loosen



These were recommended for skates:

4)

Features:
Distinctive look
Stays very tight
Harder to tighten



NOTE:
This lacing looks particularly effective on high boots with many eyelets, especially when contrasting laces are used.

[Color]Although this lacing is slightly harder to tighten, this can actually assist in getting the lacing really tight because the lower sections hold more firmly while progressing up the shoe. This makes it a great lacing to use on hiking boots, ice skates, etc.




5)





Features:
Decorative look
Holds very firmly
Harder to tighten

6)



NOTE:
Although visually messy, the underlying zig-zag makes this lacing very tight & secure. The mess is mainly noticeable on shoes and sneakers with a wide spacing (as seen in the first photo at left). On dress shoes, where the sides of the shoes are designed to meet in the middle, the underlying zig-zag will be completely hidden (as seen in the second photo at left).

In addition, this lacing allows the shoe sides to come completely together without interruption, resulting in less bunching and corrugation of the shoe uppers
