Yeah it was a new one on me.

But I figure that experimenting with a different way of lacing has gotta be cheaper than throwing away a perfectly good pair of shoes.

Thank you for posting the shoe lacing technique page! I didn't realize there were reasons for lacing your shoes differently. My new running shoe shave been feeling tight on the tops of my feet, so I will definitely be trying out a different way to lace them up.

I don't like it when the shoes are moving against my feet, but I don't like it if I feel the pressure from the top due to tight shoe laces either. So I lace them up not too tight. If by accident I tie them up too tight, I fix it later, because I can't really go on for long with too tight laces, regardless of if I am walking or running or even sitting.

I agree - lacing should be firm, but not tight.

Depending on foot and shoe shape, some people find shoes that are loose in some places and tight in others. Experimenting with different lacing techniques can help ensure uniform tightness. Try the lacing guide at www.wefitshoes.com/lacing-guide-s/66.htma> for ways to solve different problems.

not tight enough to break my circulation, but not loose enough that i don't feel the right support when doing my exercises. I know not a very helpful answer, but I think it is up to you.

depends on what you like..one of my running partners likes her shoes really loose..but then she did the Warrior Dash and lost one of her shoes in the mud.

I once tied my shoes too tight and had tendonitis, but I still tie them pretty tight, I don't like my foot rattling around.

It bugs me when I'm walking or exercising and my feet shift or rise up out of my shoe even the tiniest bit. I know having them too tight or too lose can be bad. So I was just curious how to know if they are too tight/too loose.
