this is a good one but it looks a lot cooler if you weave the laces through each other

How would this work on High Tops? Could you make a 8-hole version? Or an 11-hole version?

08motooley (author)rnorman32012-02-10

i found a way of doing it for hightops but it skips one hole

if you thread it through the 5th hole in the first step then carry on in the manner described in the instructable then it works

rnorman3 (author)08motooley2012-02-10

Ok. Thanks.

What's a "now Complete(O)", and why is it mine?

J@50n (author)mrmath2009-10-04

Just because COMPLETEO is a cool word i made up! what is urs?

mrmath (author)J@50n2009-10-04

I'm sorry. I was making a joke about your comment "Your now Complete(O)". Your --> Something belonging to you You're --> Short for You Are. Should have been "You're now Complete(O)". Kind of a pet peeve of mine.

rockadio101 (author)2010-12-08

chunkylight (author)2010-10-18

I <3 this just did it with my neon green converse! :D

DuplessisStudios (author)2010-02-04

This is hands down my favorite way to lace my converse. I did the exact same thing you did but I wove the laces kinda like you weave strings to make a pot holder. I find it makes the shoe tighter and grip on better. :)

J@50n (author)DuplessisStudios2010-02-04

good idea, post a pic?

DuplessisStudios (author)J@50n2010-02-04

No problem!

J@50n (author)DuplessisStudios2010-02-05

they look cool, you could still extend it maybe up the top? or does it not work?

baconrocks (author)J@50n2010-09-30

I tried that on someone elses high tops, and couldnt finish it, and they got very mad at me :)

maroon5 (author)2010-07-05

duuuuude i signed up on this website JUST to comment on ur thingy thanks for the easy step by step instructions, my converse double upper lo tops now look great thaaaaanks

craig3 (author)2010-06-07

i started to do this, only to realize on the last step that this guide isnt made for hightops haha

unbentcrayfish (author)2010-02-04

 thats hella legit 

J@50n (author)unbentcrayfish2010-02-04

 Ha, thanks. i have tons more, just check em out! they are mostly in the related section on the side or i got one on the front page :)!

crak-a-bottle (author)2009-10-11

i wish i'd thought of looks great!
i quite like lacing it differently on each foot...gets them noticed :D

J@50n (author)crak-a-bottle2009-10-16


WuLongTi (author)2009-10-15

 Cool Beans, I like this, though I agree it would be even nicer ifthe laces were interweaved ^__^

J@50n (author)WuLongTi2009-10-16

ya. i actually wear my laces in the style

DIS.AR.RAY (author)2009-10-11

hey, something that would be really intersting to add to this would be actually interweaving the laces, so it'll kind of look even more like a lattice. :D

i have these shoes (except i have 14 holes, not 12) and i interweavedit, it looks badass

J@50n (author)DIS.AR.RAY2009-10-12

 try it, post a pic. i can add your pics to make like an add on and give credit to you if you want. just post the pics in steps and add descriptions and i will copy and paste it into this instructable.

emozebra13 (author)2009-10-07

i did that b4 but they were weaved together, u should try it sum time, it looks sick!

J@50n (author)emozebra132009-10-07

 it would also look sweet if it were 2 color shoe laces.

marc92 (author)2009-10-04

This is pretty cool. I would assume that the laces will still work if woven to make a true lattice pattern, correct?

J@50n (author)marc922009-10-04

yes they would work that way too.

marc92 (author)J@50n2009-10-04

Very cool, but it certainly wouldn't look as good on my non-Converse shoes.

J@50n (author)marc922009-10-04

try it! cant tell until you do right? put some pictures up if you try it, i would like to see em.

marc92 (author)J@50n2009-10-04

That's true. I'll give it a shot if I find the time.

J@50n (author)marc922009-10-04

glad i could satisfy someone :)
