Shoe lacing patterns


Just bought my new running shoes and on the whole I am very pleased with them. However, my right foot is flat and has a raised bone on the top that can lead to rubbing, particularly on longer runs.

I am not sure if newer runners are aware of lacing patterns that can help if you share this problem, so thought that this link might be useful.

It works for me.

Thanks OG. I too have a bony bit on the top of my feet :) My Brooks Ghost 7s dont seem to trouble me but it is good to have the link just in case :)


oh I like the double tie! good idea that.


Anybody else scared to mess with their laces in case it doesn't work out and they can't get them "just so" again?

Or is it just me? :D


Its just you ! Ha ha :-D

No , only joking with you Peter, Im the same. I keep seeing these articles and clips on here and I think " Oooh that looks really good " but I leave them as they are even though they are the flippin' bane of my life and keep coming undone

Mind you saying that , I mustve tied them really well for my 10k as they didn't come undone at all , not once ! :-) xxx
