    There is this LOOP LACING LOCKtechniquethat can be used in a
    number of different lacing patterns to insure a tight and snug fit
    anywhere along the eye row of your shoe, depending on where your laces
    seem to be slipping.

    I don't care who came up with it first, I found it here first... :)

    I like what you did, it's not hard at all. Yet I wanted two-tone, So I doubled up the laces with contrasting colors.

    Shoes are dirty and not Cons...

     check out my others if you like, and if you want, i would like to see a pic of the final shoe!

    I would think two:

    provide additional friction from the additional string to string contact points resulting in reduced lace slippage, and;

    increased mechanical advantage from the additional fulcrums or pivot points created when the string changes direction.

    I've been using a modified form of this on the top few levels of hiking boots for years to fine tune and lock in the upper lace settings.

    your shoe laces look nifty

     nah =D just looks good lol
