Tried this last night...

Did a lace lock between the 2nd and 3rd eyelet, then crossed up to the 1st, then back down through the lace lock. Using older waxed laces in my Grafs, it held the ankle a lot more solid and snug than before without any of the lace bit in the rest of the foot. It did seem to hurt my ankle mobility but that's because my stride is crappy right now.

Weird thing is one skate's eyelets stretched at least an inch, maybe two, when tightening, which tells me that was pretty loose to begin with. Makes me worried about the durability over time, but I'd rather have snug skates that wear out over skates that aren't fitting.

Good call, Beth!
