I came across this page:

Click Here (

It has diagrams of 31 different ways to arrange your shoelaces!

You can click on the name of each lacing style for more information and photos!

(Me, I've worn boots with buckles pretty much exclusively for the last ten years, so I don't even get to answer my own question. This page is tempting me to go out and get a pair of sneakers, though...)

In terms of lacing, I go with the good old tradition of criss-cross lacing.

With tying my shoes (I knew that was so your next question...unless this question has already been asked), I have used the Double Loop technique for so many years that I'm not sure I could do it the "traditional" way.

I am elderly. I wear loafers.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

My dad taught me the over-under for my shoes when I was a kid.

When I got my first pair of 9+ eyelet boots, my best friend taught me the Straight (European) Lacing for them.

I use Criss-Cross and Over-Under, but I'm not sure which I use more. The consistent part of my lacing is the way they cross from one eyelet UP to the next eyelet on the other side.

As far as tying, I use the standard and double shoelace knots, though I did feel bad that they called the double shoelace knot "crude". I never had a problem untying it unless the kids have been mucking with the laces and made 'em over-tight.

My shoes zip. I'm going to be so sad when they finally wear out.

I was a homer for the West Coast teams (Lakers, Angels, Dodgers, etc.). But it was seeing Joe Theismann, John Riggins, the Hogs and the Three Amigos (Clark, Sanders, Monk) that solidified my love for the Washington Redskins.
