If you’ve ever wondered why shoes sometimes have that extra shoelace hole, this post and video’s for you.
Shoes have gone through many evolutions and when running shoes became a big deal, new innovations were designed that allowed the shoe to be tied better and stay more connected to the foot. The extra hole is one of those functions. If your shoes have the extra hole, they are technically “running” shoes and the extra hole and extra long laces are designed to help you tie your shoe in a slightly different way. (This distinction is no longer universal to shoes but generally gives you a good idea of what the shoe designer had in mind for the purpose of these shoes.)
I have found myself sharing this shoe tying tip with several people lately whom have all been pleasantly surprised at how effective it is so I decided to record a short video tutorial…
Try it out and let me know what you think. 👍
Thanks for reading, have a great day!
P.S. Thanks Champ for sharing this with me all those years ago.
