Over the last number of years I have been having real problems getting decently fitting shoes.   My toe box is just a little to wide for most running shoes, and if I get the wide version they end up loose and sloppy.   Up to now I have replaced insoles with happy feet and gotten a reasonably decent fit with a few select shoes.   Just learned that their are various different ways of lacing your shoes that can also help to dial in a perfect fit.  Other examples keeping your heal in place reducing toe jamming and blisters ,  for high instep ect....  For some reason I have never figured this out until now.  So passing on a few helpful links if you have any better ones do post.

I have switched to using heel lock lacing on my boots when descending and it really does help.

From the vast amount of interest this post has generated I think we 2 are easily amused, or perhaps behind the times on shoelace techniques.  I think this kind of stuff is really cool, and Iam glad  it helped someone else.  biggrin.gif

It's summer -- people are out.

In case you don't know, you can restrict a google search to a particular site with a "site:" tag.

shoe lace knot site:nwhikers.net

That search brings up several similar threads with plenty of interest.
