How To Tie Sperry Shoes?

How To Tie Sperry Shoes

There are some brands or ranges of footwear that instantly become the centre of attraction. One of them is the Sperry boots. This American brand had created its signature boat shoes in 1935, and it has been in the limelight ever since!

Sperry shoes excel in terms of quality as well as appearance. However, the latter element is enhanced when the laces are tied uniquely. As the laces have a leather construction,  it can be difficult to tie it in a knot.

But if you want to jazz up your Sperry shoes with some innovative shoe laces styles, buckle up because you are in for a ride!

 

4 Different Ways To Tie Sperry Shoes:

The Barrel Knot

The Barrel Knot

The most basic, yet the classiest shoelace style has to be the barrel knot. Not only can be it done simply but also helps your shoes stand out.

Here is how you do it:

  1. Fold the lace in such a way that you get a loop.
  2. After twisting the loop, wrap the remaining lace over the circle.
  3. Continue wrapping till you you are left with some part of the lace. This should be done five times.
  4. Tighten the lace by threading the lace’s end through the loop’s end. Pull the lace’s back to secure the loops.
  5. If you wish to get a more elegant look, you can trim the excess lace.

 

The Chain Knot

The Chain Knot

The chain lace has its inspiration drawn from a sailing knot that was used to shorten a rope.

Here is how you do it:

  1. Make a loop in such a manner that the lace comes across the front.
  2. Create a second loop.
  3. Thread the second loop through the first one in such a way that it comes from the back.
  4. Pull to tighten and secure the lace.
  5. Repeat the process three times.
  6. The lace’s end should be tucked into the final loop at the end of each knot.
  7. This should form a chain-like structure.
  8. Tuck each end into each other.

 

The Fishtail Knot

  1. Push the laces through the eyelets in a vertical position.
  2. The laces should be crossed.
  3. Each side of the lace should be over the loop on the opposite side.
  4. Repeat the process from left to right three times.
  5. Tighten the laces for a secure fit.
  6. Trim any excess lace and tuck it behind each braid.

 

The Tassle Knot

It is believed that tassel knot is an extension or a renewed version of the barrel knot, and it is rightly so!

  2. Form a loop while holding one lace.
  3. Wrap the excess lap around the loop at least three times.

How to Relace Boot Laces?

Boots have a style to it, but that can fade over time. But what if we told you that you could customise them to give it a modernised look. This can be achieved by re-lacing your boot laces.

To do so, you will need the Sperry relacing kit and a scissor.

Here is how you do it:

  1. With the kit as mentioned above, subside the lace’s end.
  2. Carefully place the end of the lace into a needle.
  3. Lace through the bottom eyelet’s inside on one side.
  4. Pass the needle through each eyelet.
  5. You can flatten the back to make the process easier.
  6. Push the needle through the last eyelet on the bottom side.
  7. Carefully remove the needle from the lace.
  8. Give it a finished look by crossing the laces through the eyelets.
