Sometimes even the right shoe doesn't seem to fit right. Fortunately, you may be able to accommodate a narrow
heel, high/low arch, or wider foot by simply changing the way you lace your shoes. Try one of these lacing
techniques to help your favorite athletic shoes deliver a secure, comfortable, and supportive fit.
Follow a normal lacing pattern up to the last pair of holes. For
narrow feet, buy shoes with eyelets that zig-zag up the placket.
Tighten from the outer eyelets, pulling the body of the shoe towards the
center. At the last hole, tighten the laces and thread into the last hole
without criss-crossing. Do not pull the laces all the way through, but leave a
loop on each side. Now cross the laces and thread them each through the loop on the
other side before tightening and tying.
Thread laces through the first set of eyelets and then straight up each
side without criss-crossing at all. Continue this way for two or three
holes. Once you've passed the forefoot and can tighten without squeezing,
begin criss-crossing and finish lacing as normal.
