According to podiatrist Dr. Adam Spector, of Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic in Wheaton and Rockville, if you don’t lace your shoes appropriately, your performance may suffer and you may have a less-than-pleasant experience.

Runners can suffer minor and major injuries if they do not lace their shoes optimally, Spector said. And that’s because correctly lacing your shoes can keep them perfect while you run. “Your foot and shoe need to become one,” Spector said. “The key is to make sure the shoe fits well and then to lace your shoes so that your foot stays stable.”
