How can I keep my heels from slipping in my running shoes?
If you have narrow heels that tend to slip in your running shoes, a simple shoe-lacing strategy will help keep your feet snugly in place and prevent blisters.
- Lace your shoes normally until you get to the hole one down from the top.
- Bring the lace through this hole so it is on the outside of the shoe.
- Then, instead of crossing the lace over, put it through the topmost hole, going from the outside of the shoe to the inside. This creates a small loop.
- Don't pull it tight, leave a small loop.
- epeat on the opposite side of the shoe.
- When you have two loops, take the end of the lace on the left side of the shoe (which should be pointing towards the inside of the shoe) and thread it through the loop on the right; then take the end of the lace on the right side of the shoe (which also should be pointing towards the inside of the shoe) and thread it through the loop on the left side.
- Put the shoe on, and pull on the ends of the laces, which will pull the loops flat against the shoe.
- Tie your usual bow and you're ready to go.
