The next time you tie your laces, give one of these different techniques a go, depending on the shape of your feet. Try these three comfy techniques to start with.
Loop lock lacing technique
Useful for those with a narrow heel or shoe slippage, shoes that have a shallow depth or when introducing an orthotic into your shoe.
This is good for a wide foot, shoes feeling too tight or a sore top foot.
Accommodating the forefoot
This technique is good for bunions, forefoot pain and nerve impingement.
Remove the lace from the last eyelet to ensure there is not lateral compression of the forefoot.
