There are many different styles when it comes to lacing hockey skates. However, no matter what style you choose to go with, there are a few factors to always keep in mind. You will always want to make sure that the skates are snugly tightened, particularly in the ankles, but they shouldn’t cause any pain due to the lacing. Listed below are some of the most common hockey skate lacing styles.
The Under Criss Cross Lacing method is the classic method for lacing Ice Hockey Skates. This method provides a classic look, is simple to lace and can be completed quickly, and provides an all-around comfortable fit.
Like the Under Criss Cross method, the Over Criss Cross method has a classic look and requires little effort to lace. However, the Over Criss Cross tends to hold tighter than the Under does. As a downside, the Over Criss Cross method can typically use more of the laces.
The Double Cross Lacing is a simple, yet effective, way to keep your laces tightened better. Not only does this method help keep your laces tighter and reduce slippage, but it is also fairly quick and easy to complete. As a downside, this method might require a little bit more effort to get them completely untied.
The Lock Lacing method provides a tight and secure feel that helps reduce slippage within the boot. It also helps increase the amount of forward flex you have during defense plays and hard skating strides. As a downside, this method takes a little bit longer to lace up, uses more lace, and is hard to loosen when untying.
Dropping an eyelet is a great option for players who are looking for more forward-flex in their skates. This can be particularly for defensemen while back skating to help them stay on the balls of their feet. This will improve overall balance and stability. As a downside, this might have a side effect of the skate feeling less stiff around the ankle and foot.
