Don't stick to the standard cross over, make you shoes fit better, Hurt less, and work for you!
We're big advocates of making every piece of equipment we own perform the best it possibly can, why should climbing shoes be any different?
There are loads of different shoe lacing guides out there and it can get confusing, fast, so we've condensed what's out there to a few we think most climbers would need.
Solid line - Grey and black, depict laces
Dashed line - Grey and black, indicate a hidden lace
Ill fitting climbing shoes
Saw tooth Lacing.
All of the inner diagonals pull at a steep angle, which shifts the alignment of the sides.
Sensitive Upper Ridge
Relieves pressure on the upper ridge of the foot. (Works best with even number of eyelets)
This set up opens up the middle section of the shoe, this can be used to release the pressure of a sensitive section of the foot. (The gap can be moved up and down to suit the climber).
This layout tightens the top of the shoe locking your heel in place while not making the rest of the shoe too uncomfortable.
Bunions /wide front foot
Front Gap Lacing.
Leaves space and relieves pressure at the front of the foot.
