For a long time, high-top sneakers were considered out of fashion. But in recent years, they’ve made a comeback–and Converse high tops are leading the pack. Whether you’re rocking a pair of classic Chuck Taylors or the new All-Star Pro, there’s a way to tie them that will keep them looking cool and feeling comfortable all day long.
Why do people do this
There are a few reasons why people might want to tie their Converse high tops around their ankles. For some, it might be a matter of style. Others might do it for practical reasons, such as to keep the shoe from slipping off or to make them more comfortable to walk in. Still, others might have heard that it can help improve your balance and coordination.
Whatever the reason, tying your shoes in this way is actually quite simple. Just take each lace and thread it through the loop on the opposite side, then pull tight and tie a knot. That’s all there is to it! With a little practice, you’ll be able to do it in just a few seconds.
What you need: shoe, laces
You’ll need a shoe, obviously, and laces. You can use any shoe, but Converse high tops look the coolest. Start by threading the lace through the bottom two eyelets on each side of the shoe. Then, criss-cross the laces in the middle, and thread them through the next two eyelets on each side.
Once you’ve done that, tie a regular knot in the laces to keep them secure. Finally, tuck the excess lace into the tongue of the shoe so it doesn’t hang down. And that’s it! You now know how to tie Converse high tops around your ankle like a pro.
Step 1: take off a shoe
If you’re looking to add a little bit of edge to your style, one way to do so is by lacing up your Converse high tops around your ankle. It’s a fairly simple process, and all you need is a shoe and some laces.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Take off your shoe. This may seem like an obvious step, but it’s an important one nonetheless. You can’t very well lace up your shoes if they’re still on your feet!
2. Find the two holes at the bottom of the tongue of your shoe. These are the holes that you’ll thread your laces through.
3. Thread one end of your lace through the hole on the left side of the shoe tongue, then pull it tight. You want the lace to be snug, but not so tight that it’s uncomfortable.
Step 2: thread laces through loops
Start with the left shoe. Thread the laces through the bottom left loop and then up through the next loop to the right. Cross the laces in front of the shoe and thread them through the next two loops on either side.
Now thread the laces behind the shoe and up through the next loop on either side. Cross the laces in front of the shoe once more and thread them down through the next two loops. Pull on both laces to tighten before moving on to step three.
Step 3: tie laces in a knot
After you have put the shoe on your foot and laced it up, it is time to tie the laces in a knot. You will want to make sure that the knot is tight so that your shoes do not come undone while you are wearing them. Take the end of one lace in each hand and tie them together in a knot. Once you have tied the knot, pull on it to make sure that it is tight. If the knot comes undone, try tying it again.
Step 4: put the shoe back on
You’ve now successfully tied your Converse high top around your ankle and it should be feeling snug and comfortable. Congratulations!
If you found this process a little bit difficult, don’t worry. It can take a little bit of practice to get the hang of it. Just keep trying and before you know it, you’ll be an expert at tying your shoes around your ankles.
In conclusion, tying your shoes in a new way can be fun and stylish. With these five easy steps, you can start tying your Converse high tops around your ankles today. So get out there and show off your unique style!
