We were all taught at some point to tie our laces. I remember being taught on a practice board, with bunny themed mnemonics! There are however some hidden secrets to lacing your shoes that most people were never taught. If you have a narrow heel and your heel slips in your running shoes, try tying a “heel lock” by using the last eyelet and creating a loop. Check the back of your shoes on the inside- is it worn through? If so, chances are pretty good that your heel is slipping in your shoe. Tying a heel lock on your running shoe keeps your foot secure and it will make you feel more comfortable and therefore run or walk faster and longer! Watch this video on how to tie the heel lock and other neat lacing tricks. Feel free to call us at 905.331.4391 or pop in to see us if you have any questions about lacing your shoes.
