Just because your shoes come laced a certain way doesn’t mean it’s the “right” way. Find a lacing pattern that fits your foot. For example, if you can feel the laces pressing against one area of your foot while running, leave the eyelet at that level out. Lace the eyelet above and below, but not that specific one.
Because my feet swell so much during my ultra-marathons, I have elastic laces for the bottom half of eyelets and regular laces for the top half. My point: Lace your shoes in whatever way feels best for your feet.
