How to Give Your Converse Lots of Kisses (Lacing Guide)

by Philip Colling

So I managed to woo a girly type recently. Which means as I'm feeling all smitten, I'm giving you guys a "wuved up" way to lace your kicks.... That's super cute right??


  • Your sneakers
  • Their laces
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    So we begin by breaking "converse law" (apparently) by lacing the bottom eyelets under rather then over the sneaker. I then lift the tongue over the lace to hide the bottom bar.

    Step 2

    Always awkward - the first kiss. Take both laces and cross them over each other before threading over the sneaker and back in through the second eyelets.

    Step 3

    The second kiss - Cross the laces and tread them under the sneaker, and out through the third eyelets.

    Step 4

    For the third kiss, cross the laces (again), and thread them over the sneaker and back in through the fifth eyelets.

    Step 5

    Forth kiss, much like the second... Keep going lover boy (or girl)...

    Step 6

    Kiss number five, simply copy step two. If you made it this far, then you must be doing something right!

    Step 7

    Finally, tidy up by bringing each lace straight up to the top eyelets.

    Step 8

    Follow the exact steps for the other sneaker...

    Step 9

    Ready to kiss some ass... (see what I did there?)
