3 Different Lacing Techniques For Running Shoes

3 Different Lacing Techniques For Running Shoes

In this video, Dusty shows you 3 different lacing techniques for running shoes. There are many different ways to lace your running shoes but these 3 fix some of the more common issues runners face. The first lacing technique is known as the heel lock or runner’s loop and is probably the most common lacing technique. Like the name suggests, the heel lock will lock in the heel and prevent your heel slipping while running. Second is diagonal lacing, which can take pressure off of your big toe while running. Lastly, parallel lacing can help relieve pressure if your shoe feels too narrow or your feet have a tendency to swell while running.

    Nice! I have a ton of sneakers and needed a simple bar or parallel lace technique for my Nike air max. Your tutorial was on point! Thx

    He just blew my damn mind on the first sneaker… I always wondereded what those two upper holes were for!



  7. Daniel Malmstone on April 6, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    With parallel lacing can you have the runners knot with that 1 also?



  8. Dickon Thompson on April 6, 2022 at 6:25 pm

    @Dusty Spiller Thanks for the informative video. ‘Eyelet’, though, not ‘Eyelid’, right?(!)



  9. Testing Instruments on April 6, 2022 at 6:26 pm

    Wonderful technique. Thank you for your video.

    Thank you



  11. Anna Stamm on April 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    What about small toe next to big toes going numb? Any suggestions??



  12. Matthew James on April 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    WOW, I had same issue of heel slipping while running. Just tried with laces like you demonstrated, what a difference. It does work. Thanks.



  13. Demetrius Malavazi on April 6, 2022 at 6:30 pm

    The second works for me. Thx for your time and tips.

    the heel lock is a brililant solution for one of my service users who has had a stroke and can’t keep his balance or is at times rather fearful of falling down. I did this for him and he was so happy because he felt so stable in his Nike ACG’s. Great idea.



  18. Maisam Ali on April 6, 2022 at 6:33 pm

    thank you 🙂



  19. Shashidhar Tuppad on April 6, 2022 at 6:34 pm

  21. Bipin Patel on April 6, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    Thank you , for helping the lacing with my running shoes .



  22. joseph bentley on April 6, 2022 at 6:37 pm

    thanks



  23. KD MAC on April 6, 2022 at 6:38 pm

    Good job. Second or third time I’ve come back to this video to lace my shoes the right way for me. Thank you so much!



  24. Mahipal Rathod on April 6, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Thanks👍🏻



  25. Ed Jordan on April 6, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    LOVE the video!! I’ve been using the loop technique in all my shoes for about 30 years, but I may need to try the diagonal for my daughter. She may need a combo diagonal/loop so I’m curious if you’ve ever combined techniques. Also, btw, they’re eyelets not eyelids. 😉



  26. Sarat Behera on April 6, 2022 at 6:42 pm

    Thanks 2nd was one easy



  27. Rob Mald on April 6, 2022 at 6:43 pm

    Does the heel lock bruise anybody else’s top foot ?



  28. Forza on April 6, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Hi. Which ASICS model are those?



  29. Deepesh Sinha on April 6, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Love from India 💕



  30. Robert Huynh on April 6, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I tried to do the parallel lacing for wide feet and just did not end up the way you did. Couldn’t figure it out, kept doing it… until I realized, I only have 5 pairs of eyelets vs 6 on the New Balance Propel V2! Ugh!!



  31. Nish Masa on April 6, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    I have a pain on instep after running. Thank you for your advise. I try last one!



  32. Joey B on April 6, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    I only knew only one way to tie my laces thank you for showing me there other options.



  33. Cari Pokrassa on April 6, 2022 at 6:51 pm

    I recently purchased Hoka One One Arahi 5s, which have a completely different type of lacing holes than shown in your video. The laces don’t end up parallel using your technique with this shoe. Is there any way that I can adapt your method to my new sneakers. My ankles are in a lot of pain after only a few power walks, and I’m confident that the parallel lacing technique will solve my problem. Any advice? Thanks so much!



  34. P F on April 6, 2022 at 6:52 pm

    I had a bone bruise on the side of my foot and needed meds. Got healed and bought new tennis shoes and they still hurt my feet.When I played tennis my foot went numb and that bruise came back. I tried your parallel lacing method and it fixed the issue! Thank you! You saved me about $125 in new shoes, a trip to podiatrist and missing out on tennis 🎾 Thanks!!



  35. Kelly C on April 6, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Thanks for the info! I was in an accident years ago that left me with issues with one foot. Can I lace my shoes different for each foot or stick to one style?



  36. Shauntae Holmes on April 6, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    God Bless you, brother…Thank you❤



  37. UncleJ4 on April 6, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    I’m walking around my house right now with parallel lacing and the heel lock, and my shoes feel so *different*. I can’t wait to see how this works out.



  38. ibcferdie24 on April 6, 2022 at 6:58 pm

    Thanks for this…
    Btw, the shoes are lovely 🤗❤️

    Witch is best for long running



  41. Rebecca Herrera on April 6, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I have flat feet, I’m bow legged, I supinate, and my second toe is longer than my big toe. man….all kinds of messed up! 😂 I found some great shoes but I am walking around with the big toe and heel lock lacing technique and I am loving life!! I literally have no pain! Thank you for posting!



  42. Amanda Ball on April 6, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    On the first lacing with the runners loop or in general should you lace from outside going in or from inside going out? Really helpful but just dying to understand what would put less pressure on the top of my foot with the standard lacing (criss cross)



  43. bhargav sukumar on April 6, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Tq brother my feet feel much better know ❤️



  44. Adam B. on April 6, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Great video, but what should I have a lot of excess laces after parallel lacing and I’m not sure what to do with it 😅



  45. FairyRat on April 6, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    Thank you, it’s extremely helpful!



  46. Angela Long on April 6, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    AWESOME!!! I hope I can do my left shoe!!! Third lace😂



  47. Nish Masa on April 6, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    I had felt a pain on my left instep when I put on some shoes. (I don’t know why only left side)
    I tried the third technic you showed. My trouble has been solved by the lace technic. Thank you very much!



  48. Libby A Myers on April 6, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    So cool, I thought I had bought the wrong size shoes, then, tried the diagonal and now neither left nor right has any painful pressure against my big toes!!!Thank you!



  49. Arthur Garcia on April 6, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Nice tips, man! Could you show how to make the parallel lacing on Pegasus 37? The eyelets/holes are different. Thanks in advance.



  50. Rebel Wolf on April 6, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Only problem with parallel lacing, is you cant adjust them. I can pull on the laces and they just get stuck.
