Do you just use an "ordinary" lacing method? You may be surprised at what's possible!

You have found, without a doubt, the most awesome collection of shoe lacing methods. Cool, trendy methods. Useful, practical methods. Unusual, special purpose methods. "Ian's Laces" includes 52 different lacing methods, many with several variations, for a total of 112 possibilities.

Compiled by Ian "Professor Shoelace" Fieggen, creator of the web's number one site about shoelaces, this app brings together more than a decade of lacing research. Plus, you'll also get exclusive methods not available on Ian's web site (or anywhere else).

Each method includes one or more clear, color-coded diagrams plus detailed, step-by-step instructions and helpful tips. Everything is included - NO Internet access is required.

What's more, you can design your own patterns! Just as quickly as you can drag your finger, our virtual laces snap to the eyelets of a virtual shoe. It's all about your creativity, so you can export or email your best "lace art" with ease.

With "Ian's Laces", your footwear will never be "ordinary" again. And if someone does ask: "How did you do that?", the answer is at your fingertips, not your feet.

Love this app!!

I’ve known about Ian’s web site for several years now, and have always enjoyed wandering around on it. Was surprised to find this app and payed the $1.99 to down load it. I’m writing this review as speculation about the Mueller investigation runs rampant (fall of 2018). This app is a nice diversion. Entertaining and informative [if you’re into tying shoes ;)]

Excellent lace and knot app!

Lovingly compiled by a true shoelace expert, this collection of lacings and knots is full of "must try" ideas. The "how to" parts are perfectly clear like the best knot apps, and the "create-a-lace" is the fastest way to try out your ideas.
