HOW TO LACE A BOOT #05 | TRAIN TRACK LACING

it's time for a new lacing technique: TRAIN TRACK LACING. this method is called like this because of its train track look. again, an easy lacing technique, when the eyelets are big enough. i practiced it on my beloved RED WING BECKMAN 1912 which normally is fitted with plain brown laces. but these laces are not ideal to show you this technique in photos because of a low contrast. so i used the classic yellow/brown RWS laces – it took me some time and energy. the look is really neat and the hold is very tight: hard to get in and out of the boot. and i tried to avoid crossing the laces as shown in the graphic. try it! pics | LTG · graphic | Ian Fieggen
