Step 3: String

Take the right string and go straight across (1st bar)

Awesome tutorial xD. I like this method a lot more than the one they come with. I also found it looks kinda cool if you reversed it and started with the left on the other shoe

I don't know what the method is called - but it's a British Army method and the reason for it is that the laces cross underneath and keep the tongue in place. This may not be necessary for shoe's but for boots it helps a lot.

 From what I heard, it is used because it is easier to cut the boot off if a soldier is injured and needs medical attention quickly.

I was taught to do this too in sea cadets, cept you cldnt see the lace underneath the stair casing. We were told its also a safety measure, since, if your foot is caught in something its easier to cut the boot off than the regular way of lacing shows.

In the IDF we tie a knot in one end of the lace, and thread it bar style once through. One sharp blade drawn between the eyelets will open the (7 eyelet) boot.

British Forces lacing for both shoes and boots is a different pattern which is the same as method 2 on this page http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/shoeshoplacing.htm

I served in the Royal Air Force as did my Father and 2 of my Uncles , one pf my uncles served in the Royal Navy and another Uncle and 3 cousins served in the Army and we were all taught to tie our laces tthe same way.

It's called Sawtooth Lacing on Ian's Shoelace Site, book, iPhone app, and anywhere else you can find it.

You should leave the final stud off.  I do this myself.

J@50n made it! (author)J@50n2009-10-31

 it should work with 7 holes, just repeat a step in the 7th.

Great Instructable!  I've recently started re-lacing all my shoes with different patterns, it's really great.

My favorite place for shoelace patterns is Ian's shoelace site.  
www.fieggen.com/shoelace/

Starburst, you've done a whole ton of good shoelace Instructables; are you using Ian's site (or some other book/site/etc.) as a source?  If so, you should probably add a link to your Instructables.  After all, credit where credit is due...

Well done!

I like your shoe tying instructables. I think this is my favorite, next to the lattice lacing.
