On the top of all running shoes, there are these extra lace holes way at the top that almost no one uses. Turns out, they’re made for looping your laces back, and tightening the top so your feet don’t shuffle around inside. The friction anchors the shoes to your foot and ankle to prevent blisters.
What are the holes in shoes called?
Eyelets are usually holes in a shoe through which shoelaces are threaded, allowing the shoes to be tightened. Eyelets are found at the throat of the shoe which is located along the top of the foot.
Are flat or round laces better?
Round laces tend to be a bit more durable, and can withstand more pressure and stronger tugs, which is why most work boots have them. Dress shoes have much thinner round laces. Flat laces are more standard and less of a hassle for shoe manufacturers, and thus they are found on most shoes.
How do you put the last hole in your running shoes?
They can help make shoes fit better, and thus prevent blisters. The trick is to create what’s known as a “heel lock” or “lace lock” with the extra holes. This method is said to create extra friction between the laces at your ankle, thus keeping the ankle and heel area nice and snug.

How tight should I lace my running shoes?
“When you tie the laces, the shoe should be snug —not too tight and not too loose—and you should have two fingers between the eyelets,” says Sach. Three fingers mean there’s not enough volume and the fit is too tight. One finger is when there’s too much volume and therefore, the fit is too loose.

What are blind eyelets?
Eyelets: The holes through which you stick your shoelaces. If they match your uppers, they’re called matched agatine, and if they’re on the underside of the leather, they’re called blind eyelets. Generally speaking, blind eyelets are more formal than matched agatine eyelets, which in turn are more formal than agatine.
How do you count eyelets on shoes?
