Here's what that extra shoelace hole is really for
Who knew the extra shoelace hole was there to help prevent you from getting blisters when you run?
Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the 'Heel Lock' (or 'Lace Lock') - all will be explained in the video below:
Even if you don't exercise in running shoes, how could you resist attempting one of these bad boys next time you lace up? And yes, it's a little more complicated than 'rabbit goes around the tree', but if it will stop nasty blisters, it's worth giving it a go.
The video's YouTube description reads:
"You can prevent these blisters with a 'heel lock' or 'lace lock' that creates extra friction between the laces at your ankle. This keeps the ankle and heel area nice and tight, without having to tighten your whole shoe. It also helps to prevent black toenails by keeping your heel and your toes from smashing into the front of your shoe."
Genuis, pure genuis.
