Boot Lacing With Double Overhand Knots – Pfanner Tirol Juchten


cross the laces (as usual – as you learned it) then make a knot (yes, this is the overhand knot) finally go through one more time to increase friction (that is called the double overhand knot) now, you can pull it tight, and it will stay tight second verse, same as the first… :=D cross, knot and go through one more time … pull it tight continue to the top there it is, the individually tightened boot each connection can have its own individual tightness and it will stay that way because of the high friction in the double overhand knot unlacing is as quick as ever demo: extremely loose connection tight, tight loose!!! tight that’s all folks!

  1. I don't remember where I first saw it, but it is common for hikers to separate the foot and the ankle section of a boot by one double overhand knot.
    I just used this method and put it in every connection, because it does help in making a better fit.
