How to Properly Lace ACU Boots


There's just something about a man in uniform so it's no surprise that army combat uniform-issued gear is often seen as street wear. Many folks who appreciate military style will never see a day of combat but that doesn't stop them from dressing the part. And this includes the footwear. Therefore, lacing those boots up in typical army-style is the coolest way to go. At first, this may seem like a difficult task but getting that ACU-look just takes a little practice. If you don't get it right the first time, don't worry, there won't be an inspection.

Things You'll Need

  • Tan army boots
  • Tan shoe laces
  • Begin lacing at the bottom of the tongue. Thread each end of the lace through the bottom set of eyelet, from the inside of the boot to the outside.

  • Pull each shoelace end straight out through the eyelets. Make sure you have even amounts of lace on each side.

  • Lace each end straight up the front and down through the next set of eyelets, pulling them through to the inside of the boot.

  • Cross the laces while they are still inside. Thread the ends through the next set of eyelets, weaving from the inside of the shoe back to the outside.

  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 until you have made it to the final eyelets at the top of the boot.

  • Repeat steps 1 through 5 with the second boot.

Tips & Warnings

  • Tuck any excess lace into the shafts of the boots or wrap it around the boots.
