Nike produces the Air Max 95 which employs a standard looping system located along the tongue of the shoe for lacing. Consumers of the Nike Air Max 95 shoes will find the laces are included in the original sale and the shoes might even be pre-laced. The standard laces and lacing techniques provided by a retailer may not be the exact style or lace pattern you wish to display on your Nike Air Max 95 shoes. You can re-lace your shoes using only your fingers and laces.
Position one of your Air Max 95 shoes so that the toe end is located closest to you.
Measure the middle point of the shoe lace by holing both ends together and following the lace with your fingers from the ends to the middle. Pinch the middle of the lace and insert one of the ends into the horizontal lace loop located at the base of the tongue. Position the lace so the middle of the lace that you pinched is situated in the middle of the horizontal lace loop.
Thread the right end of the lace into the right vertical lace loop directly next to the horizontal lace loop at the base of the tongue. Pull the lace tight and prevent it from slipping by pinching the horizontal lace loop. Take the right end of the lace and cross over the tongue of the shoe, inserting it into the second vertical lace loop from the end of the shoe on the left side. The Air Max 95's tongue is equipped with vertical loops and you may thread the lace through the tongue if you wish.
Thread the left end of the lace through the first vertical lace loop on the left side. Cross the lace over and thread it through the second vertical lace loop on the right side. You can pass the lace through the horizontal lace loop positioned on the tongue if you wish.
Repeat the alternating crossing pattern up the length of the shoe. Take the right end and thread it into the next available left vertical lace loop and take the left end and thread it into the next available right vertical lace loop until you reach the lace height that you want.
Lace the opposite shoe in the opposite cadence that you laced the first shoe. By starting on your left side first you will mirror the lace pattern on the first shoe. This will give each shoe a unique lace pattern.
