I posted an infographic the other day about choosing the right running shoe. The graphic contained some images of different lacing techniques which can help address common running / fit issues with your shoes. I have been into running for years and I have been fortunate in that I haven’t had any significant injuries and my feet are probably the least of my concerns, so the concept of lacing my shoes differently never occurred to me.
That being said I decided to go out and do some reading on the subject as I intend to push myself harder this year than I have in years past so who knows what challenges I might run into. There isn’t a ton of information on the subject out there, but the Color Run Blog has a pretty good article on the subject. Here are the images they have for addressing 5 common issues. Go to their “Running Shoe Lacing Techniques” post for more information.
Here is another image I found with more information from The Athlete’s Foot.
Here are two others I found on Pinterest.
