You Have To See What This Extra Shoelace Hole Is For

It's funny how I never knew what the top shoelace holes are used for. Did you know about this?

Hiking and running shoes have an extra shoelace hole at the top (if not, just use the regular top hole instead). These holes can be used to create loops on the inside and outside of your shoe.

Once you create the loops on both sides of your shoe, cross your laces and insert them into the loop on the other side. Then cinch your laces down and make sure to pull the end of your laces down to create the actual “lock”.

Lace your shoe in a balanced shoelace knot and you're done. You can now start walking and running in a safer and more relaxed way. No more shoe blisters!
