Lace your shoe so that the shoelace travels in a staight line from eyelet to eyelet. By avoiding the criss-cross, tou remove pressure points on the tongue of the shoe which causes pain to the top of the foot.

Use two sets of short shoelaces, one to lace the bottom three eyelets and the second to lace the top eyelets. For a good heel fit eith no slippage, use the "lace lock" technique (as seen in heel slippage) at the top.
