Skateboarding is great fun. This is why skateboarders spend hours in the park to perform different tricks and mastering various skateboarding tricks. However, skateboarding is also not completely risk-free. One common incident during skateboarding is an accidental fall. Skateboarders often suffer minor or major injuries from such accidental falls. The main reason for falling and injury in skateboarding happened due to incorrectly or loosely tied shoelaces. Wearing a high-end skate shoes will not prevent you fall if you tied the lace incorrectly.

Another reason why skateboarders suffer an injury is the fact that many skaters do not know that lacing skating shoes is different than that of tennis shoes. Improper or loosely tied shoelace gets caught in the skateboard leading to falling of the skateboarders and inflicting injury to them.

In this post, we will show you how to tie skate shoes.

The Process Of Tying Skate Shoes

One can lace his skate shoes in three different ways. These are

  • Lacing reverse criss-cross
  • Straight lacing and
  • Army lacing

Lacing reverse criss-cross

Start lacing from the eyelets which are closest to the toe. Insert the right side of the shoelace through the right eyelet and left side of the shoelace through the left eyelet and make a straight line between the right and left eyelets. Ensure that the laces are the same length before moving to the next eyelet.

When you are done with the first eyelet which is closest to the toe, start lacing the second eyelet. Insert the shoelace through the second eyelet. Take the shoelace from the left side of the shoe and cross it over to insert through the second eyelet on the right side of the shoe. Then, take the shoelace from the right side of the shoe, cross it over, and insert it through the second eyelet on the left side of the shoe.

The way you are lacing is criss-cross fashion. Continue to insert shoelace in this way and stop when you reach the last eyelet. Ensure you insert the shoelace down through the eyelet inside of the shoe.

After reaching the last eyelet, tie off the shoestring and finish lacing.

Straight lacing

Mark the eyelets of shoes with numbers. Numbering them will help you to anticipate how to do straight lacing for the shoe. Assign the eyelets which are closest to the toe with the number one. This is the first pair of eyelets. Count up and assign the subsequent pair of eyelets number 2.

Lace the first pair of eyelets.  Take one end of the shoelace and insert it through the left eyelet of the first pair. Then, take the other end of the shoelace and insert it through the right eyelet of the first pair.

Take the left side of the shoelace and insert it through the left side eyelet which was marked with the number two. Take the shoelace across the shoe and insert it through the right side number two eyelet.

Insert the shoelace through eyelets number three. Take the end of the right side of the shoelace and insert it through the right side eyelet number three. Pull the shoelace across the shoe, and then insert it through the left side eyelet number three.

Take the end of the left side of the shoelace and insert it through the left side eyelet number four. Pull the shoelace across the shoe and insert it through the right side eyelet number four.

Continue lacing your shoes this way for the rest of the eyelets until you reach the second to last eyelet.

To lace the last eyelet, insert the shoelace that is on the left side of the shoe up through the last eyelet on the left side. Then, insert the shoelace that is is on the right side of the shoe through the last eyelet on the right side. Then tie your shoelace together.

side of the shoe up through the last eyelet on the right side. Then tie your shoe strings together.

Army lacing

In this style of lacing too, start inserting shoelace through the eyelets which are closest to the toe. Insert the right side of the shoestring through the lowest right eyelet and feed the left side of the shoestring through the left eyelet to create a straight line between the two eyelets.

String the second pair of eyelets. Insert the shoestring on the left side of the shoe through the second eyelet on the left side of the shoe. Similarly, insert the shoestring through the second eyelet on the right side of the shoe.

Repeat this way of lacing for the rest of the eyelets of the shoe. Complete lacking When you reach the last two eyelets and finally tie the two ends of the shoelace in a double knot to secure it.
