There are many ways to learn how to lace vans with 5 holes. Vans shoes have been around for a long time and their laces are long so you can always try different lacing options.
But no method is as clean, neat or even as bar lacing.
Bar lacing Vans is a method where rather than exposing diagonal runs of the laces, the shoestrings are arranged in straight horizontal bars.
This method keeps plenty of tightness for when you tie up -making it perfect for skating and for going out.
Why And When Should I Replace My Laces
Replacing the shoestrings of your Vans is a great way to refresh your shoes. Particularly if you are using white.
Street skaters often need new laces due to the constant wear that comes from rubbing the strings against rough griptape.
Make sure you buy the correct shoestrings. Vans have a specific length for their shoes and deviating too much from this can cause all kinds of trouble.
Allow a bit of time to replace your strings. You don’t want to be rushing out the door for this job.
However, it’s really easy and a bit of fun.
