Step by Step Instructions

  • When the shoe arrives it will already be laced in a criss cross pattern. 
  • Ensure the laces are loose and place the foot into the shoe.  Pull the laces tightly around the foot starting from the front to the back. 
  • Adjust the laces where necessary for a snug fit.  It is also important to note that there won’t be a shoe specific for right and left foot, but after your first wear, you should decide which shoe will be which and stick to this.
  • Take one lace and cross it over the ankle to the opposite side and place it through the second eyelet, closest to the heel, inside out.
  • Then pull the lace through the loop at the back of the heel.  Repeat this again on the opposite side.
  • You should now have two laces going through the back loop.
  • Take one lace and cross it over the ankle and pull it through the first eyelet, again inside out.  Repeat this on the other side.
  • Pull both laces upwards to tighten the shoe.  Cross them over and tie a knot and a double bow.
  • It is also important to double knot the bow so that the laces do not come undone during dances.
  • Excess laces can be cut or tucked in for a neater look. 
  • It is important to note that the laces should NOT be tied under the foot.
