Step 1: Gather Materials
For this Instructable, you will need:
Step 2: Cut the Tube
This part is kind of where you need to do a little eyeballing and guessing. i cut my strip about a half inch wide, and this width works quite well, as we will be cutting the strip in half again in the next step. Luckly inner tubes have lines on them, so if you cut near a line, you can follow that and your double wide lace will stay roughly the same width.
Step 3: Cut the Strip in Half
Step 4: Now You Have INNER TUBE SPAGHETTI!!!
you also have two laces now...just to let ya know.
Step 5: Angle Each End
Now that you have your two laces, cut the end at steep angles so that they are easier to get through the holes in your shoes. Now you are officially done with the lace making!
Step 6: Now for the Bonus Cycle Lacing
First, lace it through the bottom two holes in the shoe so that it is running under the holes.
Step 7: Continue With the Lacing
Step 8: The Next Step for Lacing
Now, using your other lace, you have to skip the hole your current lace is coming out and go to the one above it. Now that you're through that hole, do exactly what you did for the first lace.
Step 9: Continue Up the Shoe
Step 10: Eventually, Your Laces Should End Up on the Same Side.
If your laces end up on the inside, then you miss counted your pairs of holes and you need to start lacing on the other side. then just tie them off and you're done!
Step 11: AND THEY'RE STRETCHY!
Not only are these a great way to re-use something, these laces are streachy which makes your shoes easy to put on and take off!
