Introduction: Sweet Paracord Shoelace Replacement

About: I love working at my local Boy Scout summer camp! I am a huge fan of AWOLNATION! I like to cruise around on my longboard every now and then and really like watchin movies! One of my favorite activities is play…

Step 1: Supplies

For this project all you will need is: 1-shoes (can be any kind I used converse cause they looked cool!) 2-paracord (2 pieces both about the same length of a regular shoelace but they will be cut as needed) 3-knife/scissors 4-lighter for burning the ends of the paracord 5-time

Step 2: Step 1

Cut the paracord about the length of your shoelace. After burn the ends to prevent it from unraveling. Keep your cutting tool and lighter close cause you will need it again.

Step 3: Step 2-Lacing Up Your Shoe!

Step 4: Step 3-Tying the Ends

This step is the easiest! All you do is put the shoe on and make it as tight as you want but keep in mind that you have to be able to take it off and put it on without having to untie anything. Next you tie an overhand knot on each side where ever on the rope that will hold the tightness. Finally all you gotta do is cut the excess and burn the ends!
