Lace bite pads can help reduce pain from lace bite. Let’s take a look at how they work…
Lace bite is caused from pressure and friction between the tongue of the hockey skate and the tendon that runs along the top of your foot and ankle. Lace bite pads reduce that pressure by inserting a layer of cushion between the tongue of the skate and your body.
When you stride, the tongue presses into the pad and not directly into your foot and ankle.
I’ve used them for years, and they were a huge help in my recovery from lace bite. I also sell lace bite gel pads here. I use these every time I skate.
