Lacing for improved fit and comfort

Narrow Heel with low profile instep


Combines heel lock lacing and mid-foot lock lacing for people with a narrow heel and low profile instep.
 
This technique can also be used for sports requiring medial and lateral motion (netball). It creates a snug and supportive fit for the heel and ankle prevents foot movement inside the shoe.

 
 

Narrow Heel

Commonly used for people who experience heel slippage due to narrow heels or for those who wear orthotics or heel raises in their footwear.

This technique may eliminate or reduce heel slippage or the sensation of movement inside the shoe.
 

 
 
 

Low Profile instep


This person may have poor fit over the top of the foot (instep). This may be due to a low profile (shallow instep).

This technique will enhance footwear support and is best for those people who require medial and lateral movement (netball, tennis).

 
 
 

High Instep

People who complain of pressure or altered neurological sensation (pins and needles) over the top off their feet may be feeling tightening or pressure from the laces.

This technique allows for a reduction in shoe lace pressure to the top of the foot (instep area) and is best suited to the foot with a high insteap or bony enlargement on the foot.
 
 
 
 

Wide Forefoot


This person may have poor fit over the top of the foot (instep). This may be due to a low profile (shallow instep).

This technique will enhance footwear support and is best for those people who require medial and lateral movement (netball, tennis).
