Ways To Lace Shoes

Share this:

Change is good, so why not change up your shoelaces by lacing them up in a new style or pattern. Tying shoelaces in a cool new way is also a great way to let your child show a little individuality in a sea of black school shoes.

But where to start when it comes to deciding on new ways to lace shoes? Well, luckily for all of us parents who are too busy labelling hundreds of pencils, pens, textas and books to think up our own pattern in the back to school rush, Ian Fieggen has created the most awesome website dedicated to the humble shoelace.
