    Have you ever wondered why there is an extra shoelace hole at the top of your shoe? Many running and hiking shoes have the extra hole and most people don’t ever use it. Instead, they skip threading the lace through the last top hole and tie them as usual. After watching this video you will now know why they are there and how to use them to your advantage.
    The extra holes can be used to prevent blisters on your heels and stop your feet from cramming forward into the front of the shoe. When you tie laces using the “heel lock” or “lace lock” technique it creates more friction between the laces at the top of the shoe which are closest to your ankle. This serves to make and keep the heel/ankle area tight and snug in place without having to re-tighten your whole shoe. Even if you do not have the extra shoelace hole you can still use the method on the top hole instead.
