Once you are happy with tightness of your running shoe laces - leave them tied and slip your shoes on and off.

When you running a race you want your shoes to fit you perfectly. If shoe laces are too tight or too loose you will soon find yourself stopping to fix your running shoes. So how do we sort out the shoes problem. Very easily by tying your laces once and keeping them like you enjoy the tightness.  Then slide you show off and on again without untying your laces. You may have a problem in taking your shoe off if the very tight, but then you know how you like it.


Remember the thickness of your socks will make a difference and also if your shoes and sock get wet. Test your running shoes and socks in dry and wet weather.


Test your running shoes and laces well before you run and race or time trial .
