When you get started running it’s all good. Find a gap in your schedule, put on your gear, and off you go. But as you start clocking up those miles, you might hit some problems. Your nails start going black, you get blisters, pains across the top of your feet and so on. Granted, a little wear and tear is unavoidable. Especially if you run for any distance on a regular basis. However, some very simple tweaks to your preparation can help alleviate some of these running pains. One such tweak is how you lace running shoes. Did you know different feet suit different lacing styles?
This article will give an intro into the different ways you can find the best lacing method for you.
How to lace running shoes to prevent blisters
