Why you shouldn't lace up tight.

Recommended Posts

I remember seeing someone who used 2 laces per skates, a longer, tightly-tied one for the bottom eyelets, and a separate lace that they tied less tightly for the top 2-3 eyelets.

Simple solution that seemed to work well for them.

The reason I drop an eyelet is so I can tie my skates tight from top to bottom and still get the flexion, consistently. I don't like tying the top eyelet looser bc it affects the tension for the rest of the eyelets even with waxed laces. 

I'm pretty similar but I skip the top 2 eyelets and lace them moderately and evenly tight from top (3rd eyelet) to bottom.

I don't know why but you just blew my mind.

I am not sure if that is a positive comment, or a blistering, underhanded and brutally severe insult in the grandiose style of Mark Twain at his most cutting.

Pretty sure he meant it sincerely. I used to do this too, but I would have until the third eyelet from top, skip the second to top eyelet and then use a short lace to tie the top eyelet. This was back when I weighed about 110 pounds but my feet grew, so I had to go into men's skate sizes and they were just too stiff lol.

Who was it that came up with lacing all the way to the top but skip the second from the top?  It works way better than I expected.

Not sure who brought it up but Crosby is known for it.
