Lacing Techniques

Regular Fit

Keep it traditional with HICKIES original lacing technique. Begin by threading one HICKIES shoelace through parallel eyelets. Fasten it by threading the tip through the hole and wrapping the ring around the clasp. Click the HICKIES shoelace in place, and if this is your optimal fit, you’ll never need to adjust them again. That’s it! Check out the video below to see how it’s done.

Tight Fit

A snug fit is your foot’s best friend in high impact sports like outdoor running and CrossFit sessions. Keeping your shoes tighter around your feet can reduce muscle tension and protect you from impact and injury. Our crisscross technique achieves an optimal, closer fit – watch the video below to see how easy it is.

Loose Fit

A loose fitting sneaker can be great for everyday casual activities, light gym workouts, or for those with wider feet. This lacing technique will still keep your foot secure, but also maintain a high level of comfort.
