How To: Lace up your sneakers for a long run

Lace up your sneakers for a long run

Prevent soreness and bruising after running by using this parallel lacing technique.
You Will Need:
* A pair of sneakers
* Two laces

Step 1
Thread each end of a lace through the two bottom eyelets on the big toe side of your shoe, lacing from the inside-out.

Step 2
Bring one end of the lace you threaded straight across the toe and through the bottom eyelet on the other side of the shoe, from the outside-in.

Step 3
Skip the next eyelet and thread the third eyelet, from the inside-out, moving straight up the side of the shoe.

Step 4
Bring the lace straight across the tongue, and push it through the eyelet on the opposite side.

Instead of laces crossing each other, this method produces a ladder-like design.

Step 5
Follow the pattern of lacing across the top of the shoe, skipping an eyelet, and threading the lace through the next eyelet.

This parallel lacing technique prevents tightness along the tops of a runner's feet.

Step 6
Repeat lacing until every eyelet is laced and your shoes are tied.

Fact: Leather running shoes with spiked soles were developed in 1852.
