31 Different Ways To Lace Shoes
From Ian's Shoelace Site:
Whilst mathematics tells us that there are more than 2 Trillion Methods of feeding a lace through the six pairs of eyelets on an average shoe, this section presents a (somewhat more realistic) typical cross-section of traditional and alternative lacing methods that I've either found or created or that have been sent to me by web site visitors.
The selection is limited to those methods that I considered worthy of devoting the time required to create instructions, either because they are widely used, have a particular feature or benefit, or just because I like the way they look.
Lacing Technique - Method 1 - Shorter Laces:
1. The lace runs straight across the bottom (grey section) and emerges from both bottom eyelets.
2. Cross the ends over and feed into the 4th set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets).
3. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 5th set of eyelets.
4. Cross the ends over and feed into the 2nd set of eyelets up the shoe (skip past 2 sets of eyelets).
5. Both ends now run straight up and emerge from the 3rd set of eyelets.
6. Cross the ends over, feed under and emerge from the top set of eyelets (skip past 2 sets of eyelets).
Many more here.
