Converse has been manufacturing Chuck Taylors, a stylish canvas tennis shoe since the early 1920s. These shoes are available in low top, high top and extra-high top. The high tops have eight pairs of eyelets and can be laced in any number of ways. The most iconic lacing method is known as straight bar lacing, in which the laces go straight across each eyelet, creating a horizontal bar. The straight bar lacing method was used in the original advertising of Chuck Taylors.
Straighten laces so they are not twisted. This will help the laces last longer and stay tied more securely.
Start at the eyelets closest to the toes. Insert one end of the laces into each eyelet, creating a straight line between the eyelets. The laces should be going toward the tongue of the shoe.
Run one end of the laces up the same side of the shoe to the next eyelet. Pull the lace through the shoe, straight across and into the opposite eyelet. Both ends of the shoe laces should now be on the same side of the shoe.
Run the same end of the shoelace up the shoe, skipping the next set of eyelets. The shoelace will emerge from the fourth eyelet and run straight across to the opposite side of the shoe.
Return to the second set of eyelets and use the opposite end of the shoelace. Run the shoelace to the next set of eyelets and out. The shoelace will go straight across to the opposite eyelet and back into the shoe. Both ends of the shoe lace will be on the same side again.
Repeat this lacing pattern until you have reached the top of the shoe. You should have seven horizontal bars.
Duplicate the lacing pattern on the opposite shoe.
