Checkerboard Lacing
This interwoven lacing forms an attractive two-color checkerboard pattern that looks fantastic on today's wide fronted sneakers.

Lacing Technique:
1. Start with two pairs of different color laces, preferably the wide, flat variety.

2. With one color (orange in my diagram), lace the shoe using Straight (Easy) Lacing.

3. With the other color (purple in my diagram), start at the bottom of the shoe and weave the lace in and out of the other lace until you reach the top.

4. Fold around the top lace and head back down, weaving out and in until you reach the bottom.

5. Continue across the shoe until you're out of room or out of lace, whichever comes first.

6. Tuck all the loose ends of the laces into the shoe.

When completed, this lacing forms a sort of loose, springy weave that does not bind strongly. It's designed for the latest fashion of wide-fronted sneakers that people usually wear loose with the laces dragging. Sort of like a trendy slip-on.
