Fun with shoelaces

When my shoes start to get old, I don't buy new ones right away, I just relace them.

There are lots of different ways to lace up shoes. My boots, for example, went from this:

Since I was relacing, my daughter asked for a cleaner look for her RBK's:

For my dress shoes (which I don't normally wear with jeans and black socks, thank you), I went for a look that's clean, even a little bit elegant:

You can find instructions for these shoelaces and many more at Ian's Shoelace Site, which I found through the Uni Watch blog.

  3. Most of those lacing styles you used, I thought were just used by shoe pimps to dress up the shoes on display at the store. I didn't know they were functional....cool
