Tying laces: down to the last hole!

, by Dennis Florussen, 1 min reading time


It seems so easy to tie your shoelaces. But too often there are runners who can tie their running shoes better than they do now.

It seems so easy to tie your shoelaces. The "shoelace diploma" is even one of the first diplomas we receive as children. And we were so proud of it! But too often I see runners who can tie their running shoes better than they do now. 

Most of the time the last hole is forgotten and the shoe manufacturers have really not made it in to save weight. If you do not use this, your shoe will fit less securely around your feet, which means you will slide more quickly in your shoes and there is a risk of blisters. 

Both your feet are never the same size, so one foot has more space than the other. When you use the last hole, you also lock that foot properly in your shoe. A better-fitting shoe also helps you stand more stable, making you one with your shoe and experiencing higher reactivity. 

But how do you use that last hole?

I will help you get started with the photo shoot below . 

Instead of taking the penultimate lace hole, choose the last hole of the shoe. Then put the lace from the outside through the penultimate hole. You now have two loops . 

Then you put the left lace through the right loop and of course the right lace through the left loop. 

Now it's a matter of tightening it so that the shoe fits comfortably around your foot. Make sure that the loops are pulled against the shoe. And now just continue tying as we learned for our Shoelace diploma ”. With or without a double bow. 

Hopefully you have learned something new and I wish you many pleasant kilometers of running.
