Hush Puppie Sandal elastic lace mens 39cm
Putting leather laces into boat shoes
Remove old, cut if knotted
Put lace into lace tool, you may need to taper the last 8mm of the new lace by skiving the back off the
lace at the end.
Poke the lace tool out through the first hole, and then lay the lace around the shoe to get the ends even,
then go back and thread it through
Cut taper off
If laces keep breaking, consider replacing just the front part with a standard lace. Keep the
leather bit around the sides by cutting and gluing just inside the front eyelets, or on some
you can stitch them by going from the outside in.
Make the laces the same length as the ones you remove, or about 20cm poking out at
each end – if in doubt
FROM WEBBING / LEATHER
1. Measure the correct length
2. Cut leather out or add webbing / leather
3. Take any old loop out, glue new in
4. Start centre sides, end in centre
Cut long enough loops!
On ones that you want to keep the existing loop material for
looks you can line the existing with 10mm? webbing or other
(leather or suitcase material or…)
Or replace with lace dees? Or lace hooks?
