Since it began in 1927, the Adidas brand has grown to include running, cycling, fencing, weightlifting, wrestling, swimming and track-and field-shoes. Lace your Adidas shoes using the straight-lacing technique, which does not require tying and untying, every time the shoes are slipped off and on. For the best look, the straight-lacing technique should only be done on shoes with an even number of eyelets.

Feed the ends of the shoelace into the bottom eyelets, creating a straight line across the tongue and top of the shoe. Pull the lace so that the lengths are even on both sides.

Pull the left end of the shoelace toward the top of the shoe and feed it through the topmost eyelet on the left. The lace will be hidden under the shoe's material until it emerges from the top eyelet. All of the subsequent steps will involve only the right end of the shoelace.

Grab the end of the right shoelace and feed it through eyelet just above it. Pull it tight, creating a straight line underneath the shoe material.

Cross the right shoelace over the tongue of the shoe to the left eyelet directly across from it. Feed it through the eyelet. The end of the shoelace should now be under the shoe's material.

Feed the end of the shoelace through the eyelet directly above it on the left side. Pull it tight, creating a straight line underneath the shoe flap.

Cross the shoelace over the tongue of the shoe back toward the right eyelet, again creating a straight line. Feed it through the eyelet so the end of the shoelace is under the shoe's material.

Repeat the steps, weaving only the right shoelace through both the right and left eyelets, creating an "S" shape.

Pull the end of the right shoelace through the topmost eyelet on the right, then tie both ends into a bow.
