Picture of How to lace up some thuggin' Converse
Alright! You just bought some sweet Converse shoes, but wait. What's this? There Are TWO sets of grommets for TWO laces?!?! Don't worry, I'm about to show you how to make those kicks fly as they come.

Step 1: Background

This all started tonight when I went to Bob's with my Mom and saw some Converse shoes, that were only 25 bucks! They were horribly ugly (probably why they cost 25 bucks) so I fell in love with them immediately. When I took them home, I went online to find the proper way to lace up the "double" style, but there was nothing. So I made my own thuggin' way to lace them up. After I was finished, I decided I had to share my work with the world (along with how to do it) with my first Instructable.

Step 2: Getting Started

Ok, so now you have your "Double" style shoes. Time to start lacing up.

The first step is to put in both laces. lace in the inner laces first (white), then the outer layer (brown).

Please notice: The inner lace's crossover point is on the inside of the inner flap, the outer laces crossover point is on the outside of the outer flap. This makes it so the inner laces ends come out towards you, and the outer's ends go in towards the shoe. We will repeat each laces order of lacing every grommet, so it's important to get it right now. It's clearer on the picture.

So very helpful!!! Thank you!!!
yeah, they are weird looking so many holes like a spider's eyes why not the regular 5-7 eyelets?
pretty sweet structable here. the only thing i would say is that instead of knotting both laces separately, wait till you are done lacing up the shoe and grab the inside and outside laces at the same time and make one knot with both laces.
the outer holes ARE for decoration and they arent called "doubles" they are called limited look it up on the converse website
if the outer holes are not for laces why do they supply laces for then

Dude, you're my new hero. These are amazing, and deffinitely not ugly at all. I love them! So cool. Where'd you get um, for only 25 bucks? Just curious... Cheapest I ever saw them, was 35 bucks at Hot Topic.-those being my black hightops. I have like 5 pairs of converse, but yeah, the cheapest I ever saw them was 35 bucks... Cept I got my black on black ones at Good Will for 8 bucks. :-P Used, though. Yeah, your shoes are deffinitely very sweet, thanks so much for showin' um off, they rock! ...Now I really want a pair of double lace ones. Lol pair will be....
i got sum brand new red and black converse at ross for $7

Hahaha thanks! Yea they were definitely eccentric when I saw them so I had to have them. Thanks for the comment!
My pleasure :) btw- word of advice.... if u ever decide to get a job where u need to have skid-proof shoes... conerse don'twork.... Im a waitresss at a restaraunt... and I was wearing the black conerse. Well... I slipped today and fell flat on my wrist... i thinkit might be broken, but most likely it's not. (been typin w/ my left hand) :-P so yeah... you can walk on ice w/ um... but not wet floor. Lol ....ouch....
...just realized u said they were at a store called Bob's... :-P But actually, I dunno that store. I don't think they have it around here. (I live in Ohio)

thank you just bought a pair of double uppers and was wondering how the hell to tie the laces so that it looks good
veritas00000 (author)  sgs5477 years ago
Haha well I'm glad it actually came to use. Be careful though I got yelled at for "looking like a chump" when I wore mine to work. So if your boss has no taste, I'd suggest to not wear them in a working environment

Whoa. Those look neat!
veritas00000 (author)  canida7 years ago
So that's what you do with those. Saw them in the store and couldn't figure them out.

these are the most unsightly foot wrappers ive ever seen.
as for the instructable it's detailed enough to follow, and there are easily enough pictures.
my only criticism would be the lighting in the photos in steps 2-7 the flash causes the white lace to lose all contrast and misses necessary detail , a well lit close up makes all the difference.
a few years back i googled this site which has loads of interesting lacing tips and in particular this page
detailing a method for lacing a double row of eyelets, it might be worth browsing if you are looking for a different way to lace your shoes

Hahaha thanks man.
