If you’re like most people, you probably take your shoelaces for granted. But did you know that there is a right and wrong way to lace your shoes? And did you also know that you can wax your shoelaces to make them last longer?
In this blog post, we will teach you how to wax shoelaces so that they stay in good condition for as long as possible. Enjoy!
There’s just something about a well-waxed shoelace that makes your shoes look so much better. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll have perfectly waxed laces in no time!
Tip: The best time to wax your shoelaces is when they’re still warm from the heat of your feet. If you want, you can remove the shoelaces from your shoes, warm them up with a hairdryer and then do the waxing.
How to Wax Shoelaces? Step-by-Step Guide.
Step 1-Take a piece of cotton fabric or an old piece of cloth and fold it in half. Then, moisten the inner section with water. The moistened area should be large enough to wrap around your shoelace at least twice.
Step 2- Take the inner section of the cloth and wrap it around one end of your shoelace. Make sure that you wrap it nicely and tightly so that no wax can seep through the fabric. Then, fold the other end of your shoelace over and wrap it tightly with another piece of cloth.
Step 3- Apply a generous amount of shoe wax onto the wrapped shoelace and spread it evenly with your fingers. Ensure that you get any part of the shoelace that is not wrapped in cloth.
Step 4- Now it’s time to start waxing! Start twisting your wrapped shoelace slowly in the direction indicated on the wax. Make sure that you’re applying enough pressure to get a nice, smooth coat of wax around your shoelace. Continue waxing until you reach the end of your shoelace, and then repeat the process on the other end.
Step 5- Use a lighter to heat your newly waxed shoelace and flatten any bumps on the wax. Then, let your shoelace cool for about 10 seconds. You may hold it with your hands, but ensure that you don’t damage the waxed section. After you’re finished having your shoelace, carefully put it back into your shoe.
If you follow each step correctly, then there should be no problems. Remember to apply enough wax to make your shoelaces nice and shiny but not too much so that the wax seeps through the fabric. Good luck!

How should I cover my shoelaces to protect them from getting dirty?
This is one of the most common questions that we receive. To keep your shoelaces clean and protected, you should always wear lace covers. And if you don’t want to spend any money, there are other alternatives. For example, you could cover your shoelaces with a plastic bag or a piece of fabric. If you don’t have either of those things, use a sock to cover up your shoelaces.
What are the benefits of waxing your shoelaces?
What kind of wax should I use?
You can find shoe-specific wax at any cobbler. If you want to give your cheap tie-ups a nice, fresh coat of wax, then you can also use blue or clear candle wax melted in a double boiler.
Can I use shoe wax to waterproof my shoes?
Of course! Shoe wax is perfect for waterproofing your shoes because it creates a nice, shiny layer that does not allow any liquid to penetrate the leather.
