How to Lace your shoes and trainers!

Wide foot, narrow foot, high instep…? Here is a solution for your problem.

Loop Lacing Lock

Lace 1

This is a great way to create a secure, tight fit. Just put each lace end back into the same hole it just exited, leaving a small loop on the top side of the shoe; now thread each loose end through the loop on the opposite side; then pull to create a supertight closure.


Problem: High instep.

Solution: Start with normal criss-cross lacing, but over the midfoot feed the laces up each side of the shoe. Finish with the criss-cross technique at the top.




Problem: Wide forefoot.

Solution: Over the width of your foot just feed the laces up each side of the shoe, again using the criss-cross technique at the top.




Problem: Narrow foot.

Lace 4

Solution: Using the loop-lacing lock halfway up the shoe doubles the laces over your midfoot, ensuring a tight fit.





Problem: Heel slipping in your shoe.

Lace 5

Solution: Lace the shoe using the normal criss-cross technique, then tie a loop-lacing lock on the last eyelet.
