Stop getting blisters on your feet when you go running, walking or hiking
Does getting blisters put you off your run? Check out this useful video tip on how to prevent running shoe blisters with a "heel lock" or "lace lock".
A lot of running and hiking shoes have an extra shoelace hole at the top: we're going to use these holes to create loops on the inside and outside of our shoe. If your shoes don't have an extra hole, just use the top regular hole instead.
This is very useful for people who are tired of getting blisters on their feet when they go running, walking or hiking. The "heel lock" or "lace lock" creates extra friction between the laces at your ankle, 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.
Once you have created loops on both sides of our shoe, cross your laces and insert them into the loop on the other side. Make sure to pull the end of your laces down to create the actual "lock". Lace your shoe in a balanced shoelace knot and you're done. No more shoe blisters!
