Getting the Most Out of Your Shoes

Getting the Most Out of Your Shoes

Lacing for Performance

When looking at your shoes, have you ever wondered what the purpose of the nearest eyelet to your ankle is? Many individuals, using this eyelet, state they feel added support. In order to get the maximum amount of support, utilizing this eyelet, there is a specific lacing pattern called the “high 7-eyelet lacing pattern.” According to Hagen and Hennig (1), this pattern for tying your shoes, with a moderate amount of tension, significantly reduces pressure underneath the heel and outer forefoot, as well as reducing the loading rate and the velocity of pronation associated with walking and running.

Wichita Pride: Old Town 10K

Wichita Pride: Old Town 10K

It was an incredible morning this past Sunday. Wichita Running Company partnered with the Midian Shriners Charity to host the Old Town 10K, here in the heart of Kansas. The morning was perfect!

It hasn’t been one of the hottest summers on record, but the changes in temperature are happening; it makes this time of year fun.
