I've found this a reeally useful tip as I have quite wide feet and need looser lacing. There's also a way of doing parallel lacing rather than cris-crossing that takes the pressure off the top of your foot. I found it on You-Tube. Both things help, though even with really wide trainers and super-tied laces my feet still get a bit numb. :(
