    Default Boot Lacing

    Hey, all. I'm a cadet, and one of our officers showed me how to lace my boots in a special fashion, I think he said it was called the "Ranger Loop" or something like that, he said it gave better ankle support. I can't find anything else on the internet that's anything about it, and I don't have another meeting for a couple weeks 'cause of the holidays and such, and I'd like to get it down before I return. I was wondering if anyone on here knew how to do it ? If anyone has any tips on boot shining that'd be fantastic, too. Thanks for your time.

    I don't know what the "Ranger Loop" is, but we used to use the green method on the right. The premise was if a medic needed to get to your foot, he only had to cust up one set of laces per row. You also only had to tighten and tuck one lace end. Can't say it gave great ankle support though.

    I was only joking............. I have no idea what this "ranger loop" thing he's looking for is either.

    Thanks for the help guys.
    I asked my brother about it earlier and he told me he didn't know anything about it, and started telling me about how paratroopers did it. He told me they did ladder lacing, and that was the one that the officer showed me. Hehe, I guess I must have heard wrong... But, regardless, thanks for you time and effort.

    Always used ladder lace on mine...and 550 cord as lacing. The boots stay tight and the 550 cord doesn't cut into your foot like the issue laces do.
