Lacing Running Shoes With Bunions & Other Foot Issues
During our last blog we discussed lacing running shoes with bunions or other foot/toe issues. Bunion Bootie is dedicated to providing natural bunion products and educating people about how they can naturally prevent and/or treat bunions without resorting to surgery or other invasive treatment options. Today we’re discussing additional lacing techniques for running shoes that you can use during your next marathon.
Running Shoes With Bunions Deformity Lacing Techniques
Last time we started to discuss foot/toe deformities and issues and lacing techniques that can help to accommodate these problems. For most people that suffer from bunions or other issues, they’ve realized that proper shoes and lacing techniques can provide a massive improvement. Today we’re covering more lacing techniques that can help those with bunions, bunionettes, narrow feet, wide feet, flat feet or even other deformities.
As always, we recommend longer laces to ensure that you do not have to pull them tighter than necessary. If you find that you are pulling your laces too tight when attempting any of these techniques, try purchasing some longer ones and try again.
Side Lacing Technique
For those suffering from high arches or flat-footedness, side lacing can be a great technique for accommodating these deformities. The technique works by lacing shoes on one side of the foot, allowing you to distribute pressure differently.
Wide Foot Lacing Technique
Many of our Bunion Bootie customers also have generally wide feet. For those that are lacing running shoes with bunions and also have a wider foot and do not have wide toe box shoes, wide lacing can be a good option. You’ll start lacing your shoe like normal by lacing the bottom eyelets. However, you will actually skip the first ones, going to the second ones. Then finish lacing your shoe, skipping every other set of eyelets. This wide foot lacing technique can reduce pressure on the foot.
Loop Lock Lacing Technique
For those that suffer from heel slippage even though shoes are the proper fit. You lace the shoe normally, however, go back through the last eyelet to ensure everything is extremely tight. This reduces the likelihood of heel/foot slipping while running.
