How To Lace Your Shoe

Loop-lacing lock
This is a great way to create a secure, tight fit. Just put each lace end back into the same hole it just exited, leaving a small loop on the top side of the shoe; now thread each loose end through the loop on the opposite side; then pull to create a supertight closure.

Over the width of your foot just feed the laces up each side of the shoe, again using the criss-cross technique at the top.
