Modifying Shoe Lacing For Heel Slippage, Dorsal Exostosis And Bunions

Modified shoe lacing can help with a variety of foot problems that tight fitting shoes make worse. One of my favorite “how-to” shoe lacing sites is Ian’s Shoelace site http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/ .

I have three common lacing modifications that I recommend to patients. Lock lacing for heel slippage secures ankle fit and prevents heel slip. Offset lacing for the top of a foot bump prevents numbness, relieves pressure and prevents irritation. Finally, increasing forefoot width lacing can relieve pressure on bunions.

The following video highlights these three common lacing modifications:
