While liberty shoelaces are certainly beautiful all on their own, you can certainly show off a unique look with some cool shoelacing styles.
You see, the beauty of liberty shoelaces is that they’re stylish and fashionable.
You can pair them with any pair of sneakers and they’re sure to stand out.
Laces this special deserve a little extra special treatment.
That's why the shoelace styles (liberty shoelaces) we're looking at here are a little more unique than your standard knot, so keep reading!
This style leaves a visible gap in the middle of your shoes’ tongue.
So use this style only if you want to show off a design on the tongue or even if you need to alleviate pressure on a specific part of your talus.
Starting at the bottom, crisscross your liberty shoelaces up to the eyelet pair under where you want to have a gap.
Then, instead of crossing, have the laces run through the eyelet immediately above it until you run out of eyelets.
This is a pretty simple style that highlights the design and colour of your shoe's tongue.
Additionally, its practical benefit makes it a great “basic” choice to try out.
Of the many ways to style shoelaces, this is perhaps the best for showing off the gorgeous design of your liberty shoelaces.
What you end up with are just parallel lines of laces with no crisscross blocking the design.
Go straight across the outside to start. Pull out one lace on the first eyelet and insert it into the one across.
Then take the other lace through the next eyelet and into the one across.
Repeat this process until you get to the very top.
Note that you’ll end up tying the knot inside your shoe at the end so there’s really no need to get too fancy.
This unique lacing pattern stands out because it does away with symmetry.
You have an eye-catching “wall” of lace—showing off again your liberty shoelace design well—with just a single “bolt” running contrary.
Start lacing on the inside then take one lace from one side and put it into the topmost eyelet on the opposite side.
The other lace should then be threaded alone all the way up until it sits opposite the first lace end.
It certainly looks different from other lacing patterns and stands out.
It’s also very quick to set up.
Just note that the uneven distribution of laces might mean that the end lengths will tend to shift.
This is one of the more creative shoelace styles (liberty shoelaces) out there and will have your laces meet and hook onto each other down the middle.
You start as always on the inside and at the bottom.
Pull both laces out and have them loop into one another.
Once done, insert the laces on the next eyelet on their original side of the shoe.
Continue this all the way to the top, where you can tie them off.
This is a very fun style to try and can also be done with two laces of different colours!
Ultimately, the answer to this depends on your personal preference or even the activities you’ll be expecting to do.
We recommend the simple "Bunny Ears" knot, especially if you're pressed for time and don't have much time to experiment with lacing your shoes.
Just cross the laces, wrap the top lace under the bottom and pull it through.
Make a loop with each end, cross them, and pull one or the other through the hole. Pull tight and you’re done!
