How To Lace Oxford Shoes

We’re still alive! As the title says, today we’re going to be talking about how to lace your beloved Oxfords and going through the points step by step. In my opinion, the best (and least messy) way to do this is called “European Lacing”:

  1. You begin lacing the shoe by taking the lace and threading it across, down into the lowest set of eyelets so that it is completely horizontal. Make sure they’re relatively even.
  2. Take one lace in each of your hands and proceed:
  3. Take the left lace and bring it up and out of the second right eyelet (the eyelet that is directly vertical above the lowest eyelet).
  4. Take the right lace and bring it up through the third left eyelet - which means you have skipped one eyelet here.
  5. Bring the right lace across the shoe and into the second left eyelet and then bring it aaaaaaaaaall the way up and through the fourth right eyelet, again skipping one.
  6. Most oxfords don’t have many eyelets, but keep going through this process until you’ve reached the last eyelets and ta-da! You’re ready to take your new oxfords out for a stroll! Each lace should look horizontal across each set of eyelets, nice and tidy.

Enjoy!

Mwuah! <3

These might hurt the pockets a little but ohh my! &lt;3
(Although as an oxford lover I would fix those laces!)

Don’t you think these would go splended together? Tea time <3

Anonymous said: You seem very well into oxfords so I'm going to assume you know a bit about who sells them blah blah. Would you happen to know any places who sell the oxfords with heels? I just think they're adorable and I can never come across any in stores. I mean I did yesterday, but they had every size but mine. And they were on sale so when they restock, they won't be and I won't get them. Do you know any places where they sell them for a rather cheap price? Thank you c: x

Hey hun, sorry for my late reply! This is a fantastic question, and I do get questions like this all the time. One point to remember when sending in a Q is to state where you’re from because my answer will change depending on the country :)

If you’re going for absolute quality, my personal oxfords were last year’s from Bianco Shoes in Sweden. They are leather with about 1/2” of heel and semi-hard soles which ran up to $200 (also featured in one of my first few posts!). You can also usually find quality oxfords at saeson-end sales.

Oh my goodness! I want them all!!! &lt;3 *mini squee!*
