There are various ways to lace your shoes to alleviate pain caused by foot problems such as high arches, toe problems, heel fit, narrow or wide feet, narrow heels and wide forefoot, bumps on the top of your foot, a bone that sticks out or perhaps pain from a nerve or tendon injury. Changing the way you lace your shoes may eliminate or lessen the pain and help healing.
. The following are lacing tips from the American Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Society.
Some General Lacing Tips
- Loosen the laces as you slip into the shoes. This prevents unnecessary stress on the eyelets and the backs of the shoes.
- Always begin at the bottom and pull the laces one set of eyelets at a time to tighten. This prevents unnecessary stress on the top eyelets and provides for a more comfortable shoe fit.
- When buying shoes, remember that those with a large number of eyelets will make it easier to adjust the laces for a custom fit.
- The conventional method of lacing, criss-cross to the top of the shoe, works best for the majority of athletes.
