My mukluks keep slipping and falling off at the heels


Do they have laces that you can tighten the laces over the arch? This can help more than tightening the laces at the top.

Finding shoes for ageing feet


Number of tips for finding shoes for ageing feet: 1. Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 2.Shoes should not need "breaking in" they should fit comfortably from the start. 3. Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 4.Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 5.Ensure shoes are wide and deep enough to prevent heel slip. 6.Lace up, buckles or Velcro should hold the heel in place Velcro straps can be easier for arthritic hands.7. Slip on shoes can encourage the toes to 'claw' at the shoe to keep it on leading to discomfort, corns and calluses.

Rapid lace system problems.. uneven lace


Hi All,

I had an uneven problem with the DC Siloh '09s. Not sure if it will cover all makes and models but I will explain how I fixed it.

Key for the instructions:
Numbering the laces from top to bottom 1-8, outer side of the boot = little toe, innerside = big toe, and on the two laces that lock on either side of the boot (4 in total) toe and heel lace.

1. In order to make the laces even again you need to unlock the heelside lace on the outerside of your boot, this lace controls lace 3.
2. Pull lace 3 using creating slack now that it is unlocked
3. Pull the slack through lace 4 and then 5.
4. Once you have slack in lace 5 unlock the toe side lace on the inner side of your boot.
5. Holding that same lace pull the slack through the locking mechanism until you are happy with the balance.

For moving slackness from the inner to the outerside the opposite approach applies.

If it is not clear, reply and I'll try and take a photo or post a video or something.

Cheers

Mikey

Simple question: How do I release the buckle on my Shimano shoe? I just bought the shoes and can't figure it out. Thanks! Mike


Buckle? It looks like that model is just a shoe lace/velcro system. If you mean the clip (between the shoe and the bike) you twist your feet toe pointing into bike and heel away from bike, and push out laterally perpendicular to the bike.

Just bought new balance wr 859, having pain of top of foot (where bump is) seemingly from the tight lace, however when loosen the lace, sneaker is too big. thank you ege972@aol.com


Hi,

Have you considered tongue pads? They are soft cushions with felt on one side and adhesive on the other that you can stick to the tongue of your shoes to provide cushioning and reduce slippage & pressure from laces on your instep.

Some options are available on the site below.

http://www.feetrelief.com/feetrelief/arch_support_accessories.htm
http://www.wardrobesupplies.com/store/m2_footcushion.html

One thing you might want to consider is if you have a high arch to your foot. Generally, the higher the arch, the higher the instep which will effect the way shoes fit you. The shoe that fits comfortably over your instep without causing pressure may then be too loose around the heel. Runners with high arches also experience more foot pain/strain because their feet actually fall harder than a lower arched runners. You may want to consider the Nike Pegasus or Adidas Cushion if you think this is the case.

I really hope this helps you.

My Burton boots are loose around the ankle and the laces do not stay tight. Any recommendation would be appreciated.


For the ankle you may need some specially shaped foam inserted between the boot outer and the liner to take up the space. This can be done at any good snow store. As for the laces make sure that when lace up in the morning lace the boots all the way to the top and when you reach the top, while holding the laces, flex in the boot a few times and kick your heel against the ground to make your your foot in snug (this may also help issue #1. Once you have done this, pull up hard again on the laces and loop them once around the top before tying a double knot.

I am unable to loosen the laces on the exterior of the boot. Only the bottom half is loose and the top three laces remain very tight.....as if there is a knot inside the boot lining.


Sometimes if the boots have been well worn the lace will pill inside its tubing and become stuck. The best way to fix this is to untie the jammed lace at the bottom and then pull from the top to remove the damaged lace. You will also need to get a replacement lace from your Burton store to repair in reverse.

How to fit a snowboard boot?


" * Put on Snowboarding Socks or at least the thick socks that you would wear when you'll go Snowboarding. Do not try your Boots with regular socks. You might think it's irrelevant, but the added thickness of the socks matter a lot when it comes to the size and fit of your Snowboard Boots. Still, some people have strange misconceptions about socks. One of which is that you have to wear more than one pair of socks. This is certainly wrong since Snowboard Boots should fit snugly. It is all right if toes are grazing the ends of your boots, but make sure they aren't jammed. After all, when the boots break in a little they will feel more comfortable. * Loosen the outer (and inner if available) laces of the Snowboard Boot and insert your foot. Make sure the heel of your foot is locked in the heel of the boot. * Tighten the inner lacing first (again if available). Make it pretty tight but make sure your feet can still breathe and you don't cut off circulation. Next, tighten the outer lacing, again pretty tight, without killing your feet. * Walk around a bit and get a feeling for how well the Snowboard Boots are strapped around your feet. Make sure you don't feel any isolated, painful or stressful areas. * Now the most important test: strap into (or step into) a binding attached to a snowboard. Take on a riding position and move your weight to the front and the back of the board. Be sure the boots are securely keeping your feet on their place. Also, make certain that they are not slipping to the back or front, and that you are not experiencing painful or stressful areas on your feet. The Snowboarding Boots should make you feel both comfortable and securely strapped-in at the same time. * Lean forward. When you do this, make sure that your heel is not lifted, but that the entire boot, binding and board are making the forward move without your heel slipping out of the heel of the Snowboard Boot. If you do experience heel lift, your boot tech can add some fit aids like an Eliminator Tongue to reduce volume and increase responsiveness. This will also ensure that your heel is not slipping out of the boot. * When you try on Snowboarding Boots, take into account that as you use the boots more often, the inner bladder will get less compact because of the pressure that the bladder will be exposed to. Consequently, the Snowboard boots will become less tight as you use it more. Try to anticipate this trend by buying boots that are slightly tight. After the boots break in a little they will feel a lot better. Snowboard Boots come in all regular shoe sizes. Still, keep track of how different boots of similar sizes can vary in the way they hold your feet and ankles. Don't Buy Snowboard Boots because the internet or your friend says its cool, or your favorite rider has his/her name on it. What may feel good to one person may be excruciatingly painful to someone else. Make sure to try on many boots and only buy one that you are 100% sure of. Quality Snowboard Boots can last long, so you will want to put in more time and spend some money on this. Regardless of the Type of Snowboard Boots you intend to wear, choose the pair that fit your feet best. After all, you wouldn't want to be out of control and in pain when you ride down the slopes."
