How do I lace my shoes?Parallel Shoes come pre laced from the factory, but we are suckers for the standard criss-cross lacing. Lacing your new shoes with this will also give you a much better fit.
Please see the lacing guide in your purchase.
How do the shoes fit?Great Question!
Parallel runs in women sizes 5.5-10, which for men that would be sizes 3.5-8.
The best way to wear your new shoes is with thin no show socks.
Plan to wear thicker socks?
We would suggest going .5 size larger for the best comfort.
