What you were never taught about lacing your shoes

Many a time our heel slips from the shoe. It is because the laces have not been tied properly.

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!
