    Those tongue hooks are supposedly just to hold the tongue in place, but I have discovered for my messed up right tibia/ankle, those hooks add a significant amount of support to the boot when laced a certain way. It took me a while to figure out how to get the max benefit from them, so I am sharing this video with you all. Maybe you have some suggestions that would make it work even better.

    If you take the loop from the bows and hook them on the top hooks (one on each side) and pull the tails, you can make a second bow with what is left and have it more secure on top as well.

    I'm not concerned about the skate coming untied or the laces loosening, I'm concerned about maximizing the amount of support I can get from the boot.
