I came across this blogpost, Running Shoe Lacing Techniques , regarding different ways to tie your running sneakers based on different issues you are having with your sneakers or feet. I have never tried different lacing techniques to help the foot position of children. For children with mild delays this might be an inexpensive technique to try to help support the foot. Worth a look for pediatric PTs. Would love to hear if others have had success with different shoe lacing techniques with children.
