How to Lace Alexander McQueen Laces
Below, we will share with you the 2 best methods on how to lace Alexander McQueen laces. The loose lacing method is ideal for wearing the shoes without tying them.
On the other hand, the double lacing method is a quick and easy way to secure your laces. By working with both lace tips, you will install the laces quickly.
Firstly, you need to make sure the lace is laid out flat and not twisted. You’re going to want to keep this in mind when threading the laces through each eyelet.
For better visualization, you can also watch the video above for the lacing methods. The guide below is based on a bird’s eye view of the shoes.
Method 1 – Loose lacing method
With the shoe pointing away from you, thread the lace through the top right eyelet from the outside in. Take the other tip and thread it through the other eyelet from the outside in.
You should have both of the top eyelets filled with lace. Once both of the top eyelets are filled, you will only need to work with one of the lace tips instead of both.
Next, take the lace tip on the left and thread it through the tongue loop in the middle. Then, thread it through the bottom right eyelet from the inside out.
Then, take the same lace tip and thread it through the other pair of bottom eyelets from the outside in. You should form a straight line with the lace running across the bottom eyelets.
Next, thread the same lace tip to the next pair of eyelets on the opposite (right) side from the inside out. Then, thread it through the empty pair on the left side from the outside in.
By now, you should have two straight lines running across the bottom two pairs of eyelets.
All you have to do now is to repeat the process until you reach the top. Once all the eyelets have been filled, both the lace tips should rest nicely next to the shoe tongue.
And you’re done. That is the loose lacing method.
Method 2 – Double lacing method
For this method, you would want to work with both lace tips at the same time. Hence the name, double lacing method. To start, hold the lace tips together.
Next, thread both lace tips on the bottom left eyelets from the inside out. After you pull both lace tips together, the lace should be secured by the two bottoms left eyelets.
While keeping the lace nice and flat, insert both lace tips on the two bottom right eyelets from the outside in. You should have the two bottom pairs of eyelets filled.
Next, keep the lace on the same side and thread both lace tips on the next two eyelets from the inside out. By now, you should have four eyelets filled on the right side.
Now run the lace across to the left side and thread both lace tips on the next two empty eyelets from the outside in. You should have 4 lines forming between the first 8 eyelets.
Next, run the lace across to the right side and thread both lace tips on the next two empty eyelets from the inside out. By now, you should have six eyelets filled on the right side.
Run the lace across to the left side and thread both lace tips on the next two empty eyelets from the outside in. You should have 6 lines forming between the first 12 eyelets.
You’re almost done.
Finally, take one lace tip and thread it on the eyelet on the right side from the inside out. Take the other lace tip and thread it on the next eyelet on the left side from the inside out.
You can now tie the lace together and secure your Alexander McQueen shoes properly.
