Chuck Taylor Lacing

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
All my shoes are straight bar laced. I've tried this on Chucks with a single diagonal workaround and it just doesn't work right. The laces get all twisted (do you replace Converse laces?), the fabric between eyelets bunches and it's hard to get the tension right. How do you lace your Chucks?

Laceless JV chucks

Lace them like a normal person except for the last hole for easy slipping on and off.

Chucks should be as casual as humanly possible. Fancy lacing techniques just come across as trying too hard. Get them 1/2 size small and lace them up casually/normally...don't pull them tight and get them dirty as fuck.

Exactly. And wear them as loosely as you can so they flop around and wrinkle the fabric as much as possible so they get fucked up fast.
