How to Lace Your Sneaks for Running

After I buy sneakers, I tend to leave the laces just how the sales person left them. Just like keeping the factory setting. Turns out though, standard lacing may not be the best method for many people's feet. has a great "how to" on ways to lace up your running sneakers based on any issues you may have.

Here are highlights:

Problem: Wide forefoot.
Solution: Over the width of your foot just feed the laces up each side of the shoe, again using the criss-cross technique at the top.
Problem: Narrow foot.
Solution: Using the loop-lacing lock halfway up the shoe doubles the laces over your midfoot, ensuring a tight fit.
