How To Tie Running Shoe Laces

How To Tie Running Shoes For Ankle Support

It’s conceivable you’ve never considered how to tie your laces for running and have always done it in the most standard technique, the one you use for the rest of your shoes. But it isn’t the greatest option. We discuss the necessity of tying your laces properly while running and, more importantly, the best methods to do so.

These little adjustments will increase our running comfort and make our feet feel safer and more grippy. So pay close attention to what we’re going to say in this piece.

Know Your Foot

Because everyone is unique and has a unique body, the first step is to understand what our feet are like. The same way that not all runners need the same running shoes, not all tying procedures work for everyone. Perhaps you’ve never considered if your feet are narrow, broad, or more conventional. But now is the time to figure out what your feet are like so you can tie your shoes correctly.

If you’re not sure how your feet are, put on your regular running shoes to check how the grip on the instep is and if you need to loosen or tighten the laces. Some tying ways or others will suit you depending on the size of your foot, which in this instance is more about the breadth than the length.

How To Tie Your Running Laces If You Have Narrow Feet

Pay heed to these instructions if you have narrow feet and feel like your shoe is sliding or needs to be tightened more. The first step is to untangle the laces while they are still knotted. The holes closest to the toe will be joined to make a horizontal line, which is the traditional tie. In the next step, we’ll link them together to make little Xs, leaving the centre spots open.

How To Tie Your Running Laces If You Have Wide Feet

If we have broader feet, we must find a solution to open up the middle holes so that our foot feels more at ease. As a result, circulation will be improved, and we will not experience the unpleasant pressure that leads to discomfort or the need to quit jogging because we do not feel comfortable.

On the other hand, it’s possible that the thicker section of the fingers, rather than the instep, is what we have. If that’s the case, there’s also the option of leaving the points closest to the instep free. That is to say, we would not slip the laces through there to increase the amplitude of our foot and make it feel more free.

Tie The Laces To Better Support The Ankle

It’s likely that you don’t believe your ankle is securely attached, causing you to lose confidence in the tread and, in some cases, causing your foot to twist.

There is a method that involves employing the shoe’s highest holes as a loop to increase our sensation of grip and consequently our sense of security in the tread. The advantage of this final method is that it may be coupled with the others to adjust the breadth of the foot without compromising ankle support.
