This article teaches you the 2 best ways to lace Alexander McQueen sneakers.

How to lace Alexander McQueen laces

Below, we will show you the two best methods for lacing Alexander McQueen sneakers.

The loose lacing method is perfect if you prefer to wear the shoes untied. The double-lacing method secures your laces quickly and easily.

Make sure the lace is flat and untwisted before you start. Use both lace tips to lace up your shoes quickly.

Remember to keep the lace flat as you thread it through each eyelet.

Watch the video above to see how the lacing methods work. The guide below shows the shoes from a top-down perspective.

Method 1 – Loose lacing method

Point the shoe’s toe away from you and thread the lace into the top right eyelet from the outside.

Then, thread the other lace tip into the top left eyelet from the outside.

After lacing the top eyelets, continue with just one lace tip.

Take the left lace tip and thread it through the loop on the shoe’s tongue. Then, thread it through the bottom left eyelets from the outside.

You should now see two horizontal lines across the bottom eyelets.

Continue this process until you reach the top eyelets. When all eyelets are laced, the lace tips should lie flat beside the tongue.

This completes the loose lacing method.

Method 2 – Double lacing method

In the double lacing method, use both lace tips together. Pull both lace tips through so the lace tightens against the bottom left eyelets.

Ensure the lace is flat, then thread both tips through the bottom right eyelets from the outside. You should see the lace threaded through four eyelets on the right side.

There should be four horizontal lines across the first eight eyelets.

Continue this pattern until you have six eyelets filled on each side, forming six horizontal lines.

Finally, thread one lace tip through the next right-side eyelet from the inside out, and then thread the other lace tip through the corresponding left-side eyelet from the inside out.

Now, tie the laces in a bow to secure your Alexander McQueen shoes.
