A properly laced boot does not fall off, does not rub, saves from injuries and calluses. Tie your laces to make walking easier.
How exactly to choose the right type of lacing is advised by the American Society of Podiatrists.
The regular cross-lacing method works for everyone and is optimal in most cases. Therefore, before tying your laces, remember the basic rules that will make your shoes more comfortable:
- Loosen the laces before putting on your shoes. First, it makes it easier to insert your foot into the boot. Secondly, the holes for the laces will not come loose and the shoes will last longer.
- Always start lacing from your toes and pull the laces gradually from one pair of holes to the next. That is, do not tug at the ends in the hope that this will quickly tighten the entire leg. Lacing "step by step" is longer, but you will achieve the perfect fit of the shoe on the foot.
- Buy shoes that have lots of lace holes. The more there are, the more options for lacing and ways to make shoes comfortable.
And if the leg has features, try other methods.
If your foot is narrow, try to choose shoes with two rows of holes and only pass the laces through the outer row to make it easier to tighten your foot.
For wide feet, boots with a double row of holes are also suitable, but you need to use the inner holes to leave more room for your feet.
Narrow heel and wide metatarsus
Use two laces. Pass one closer to your toes and tie it loosely, and insert the second into the holes closer to the heel and pull off the shoes as you like.
If there are problems with heels and heels, thread the laces through each hole and make sure that the part of the lace that is closer to the toes is free. And, on the contrary, tighten the area that is closer to the heel.
When you get to the penultimate hole, do not cross the laces, but immediately pull them into the last of the holes. A small loop will appear on each side. Now cross the laces and pull them through this loop, then tighten and tie.
