  • If you get blisters on the heels of your feet or you can feel your feet moving

  • around inside your shoe,

  • there's actually a simple solution for that. This is how you execute the "Lace Lock"

  • or the "Heel Lock".

  • Now it actually doesn't start by crossing the laces and actually starts

  • by going to the outside of our shoe to the extra holes that we often ignore.

  • We're going to use these holes to create loops on

  • each side of our shoe by inserting a lace in backwards.

  • We create a small loop like that.

  • We do that on both the inside and the outside

  • and we use these loops to execute the lock.

  • Now once we have loops on both sides here

  • we cross our laces and insert them into the loop

  • on the other side. This. Then

  • we sent our laces down. Now we're gonna want to pull down first did not

  • up. Because if we pull up you'll notice we leave the loop

  • hanging out here. We don't want that. We want to put down

  • toward the shoe. It actually creates

  • a lock, a nice firm tight lock. You see there's no space left here in the loop.

  • It's tied up against the shoe. Then we can simply

  • lace our shoe like we normally would and we successfully completed the "Lace Lock"

  • or the "Heel Lock".

  • Notice it's extremely tight on my foot it's not gonna slip it's not gonna

  • move around.

  • It also keeps your toes from jamming into the front of your shoe. Keep

  • your...

  • your foot tightly seated inside your shoe and

  • just provides for more comfortable wearing experience no matter what you're

  • doing.

  • So thank you so much for watching and make sure you tune in next time for

  • another great tip from Illumiseen.
