A Step-by-Step Lacing Guide

A Step-by-Step Lacing Guide

Step 1: Unlace your shoe almost all the way down. Leave the first two holes laced so that they both go in to the shoe.

Step 2: Take the lace on the right, and instead of crossing it over the top of the shoe, bring it up through the next hole on the same side.

Step 3: Using the same lace method as above, thread it through the next hole on the same side. This lace should now be on the inside of the shoe about halfway up.

Step 4: Repeat steps 2-3 on the left side.

Step 5: Continue lacing the shoe in a normal fashion, crossing the laces over the top of the shoe.

Step 6: Tie at the top as usual.

This way of lacing can help provide your wide forefoot with lots of extra wiggle room and circulation.
