Learn how to lace a shoe using the standard criss-cross method with this guide.
Face the toe of the shoe away from you so it’s facing the same way you would put the shoe on your foot). Start at the first set of holes nearest your toe. Place the shoe lace through both holes from the inside of the shoe. Pull through and make sure that the lace is even on boh sides.
Work diagonally through each set of holes, placing the right side of the lace into the hole on the left side of the shoe and the left side of the lace in the right side of the shoe. Each time, continue making sure that the laces are even on both sides.
Repeat step 2 until you reach the end of the shoe.
Make a bow at the end.
