Nike: Lacing Shoe Eyelets

Hi, Should running shoes be laced all of the way or should I leave the last eyelet at the top open? Thanks, Gary

Hi Gary,
That top-most eyelet is for use at your discretion. Some runners find that they need that added eyelet to achieve a secure heel fit, but in most cases it goes unused, which is entirely okay. It’s all just a matter of what feels and works best for your feet.

Thanks for the great question!
