I have very stiff skates so the support seems fine, i feel like leaving the top empty helps my cutting a bit.
whatever works best for you. Personally, I tie all the laces so they are snug, then the top 2 eyelets are tied very tight. I use waxed laces so I dont have to worry about them slowly loosening (i have shin guards over my laces, so its difficult to retie while on the bench)
