2. ZIPPER

This method “locks” the laces at each eyelet pair. Great for lacing skates tightly because the lower sections hold while tightening. It also looks interesting – a bit like a giant zipper

3 HEXAGRAM

5. STAR

With all vertical segments hidden on the inside and all diagonal segments on the outside crossing at the middle of the shoe, the result looks like a “starburst”.

6. DIAMOND

A funky lacing method, Diamond lacing works best with sneakers and boots, which have many eyelets. They look better with flat laces rather than round ones and require that the eyelets be large enough to allow at least 2 shoelace passes through them.
