Lace your shoes to prevent blisters

About a dozen people have shared the ‘blister-free lacing¬†video’ with me on Facebook asking if I’ve seen it.

YES! ¬†I’ve seen it!

I’ve got to confess that the first time I saw it I thought ‘that’s a great video, I’ll make my own version and get some eyeballs on it’.

But it really is good, and now that over 10 million people have watched it there seems little point.

I can’t speak about the effectiveness of this peculiar lacing system in preventing blisters, but I’m going to give it a go anyway.

By ‘locking’ the shoe in place by creating extra loops with the mysterious 2nd hole, you apparently prevent the shoe from sliding forwards and creating friction.

Blisters aren’t a huge problem for me, but I’m on the verge of parting company with one or 2 toenails so I’m game to try anything that’s going to relieve some of the pressure.

Let me know how you get on with it, or if you’ve been doing this for years (I now know that some Amphibian King stores in Ireland have been teaching this to their customers for years!).
