The Grind-N-Roll has oval lace slots that accommodate 2 laces. So I came up with this lacing scheme to use up the extra 12" of lace length.

Anyways, looks pretty tight. I used to do that with all of my shoes... just play with the laces to get rid of all the extra-ness. One pair was SO cool, I gotta take a picture.

Agreed. As our man Deez once said, toight lik a toiger. Smile

I always did like a good lacing. Very Happy

Hey HN, if it's no trouble could you show a sketch diagram of how this was done, a bit like they do on this website: http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/lacingmethods.htm

Don't worry if you ain't got time, I understand. Smile

Even worse... I had the car shipped from overseas to the US (it is 1 of only 6 here) and customized the shoes to match! The laces kinda match the black/white woven interior.

Mainly because I run a VW website. We never got the Polo here in the states so being an enthusiast, I had one shipped over and modified it to my likings (moar lowar with custom wheelz). It's been in several magazines and on several websites and has served me well. I sold it awhile back and the new owner is putting quad bike carbs on it and serious custom built full on racing suspension. It's gonna be a pretty crazy little toy for sure. BTW... if you want to get a pic in your head > it's about 2/3ds the size of an old VW Rabbit (yeah... it is really small and I looked awesome driving it!!)





and of course... my fav pic

@merrie, if you look closely the horizontal bars aren't just one lace. They're 2 overlapping, so with that i dont think it should be too hard for you to figure out.

He sold the car.


Btw that lacing syle works good for pro series if you have medium fat laces. I'll take pics.

Yeah I can sort of see how it's done but I wanted to be sure - there are ways to hide laces behind the sides of the shoe etc and so multiple ways that could look exactly the same from above. The diagram would tell for sure. Smile
