Collegiate Sports Medicine – In my opinion, Bunga pads are by far your best option for dealing with lace bite pain

What is Lace Bite and why use a Bunga Pad?

Lace bite, simply put, is a sharp pain or pressure that runs down the front of your lower leg down to your toes. It can happen to all athletes who require laced footwear for their sport, but even more so to those who must wear skates or cleats (hockey players, figure skaters, soccer players etc.)
Lace bite occurs due to the pressure of your skate tongue against your ankle.

Too much pressure from tight laces coupled with a stiff or inflexible skate tongue that hasn’t been broken in well enough can lead to painful lace bite, making it extremely unpleasant to skate, let alone play.

In my opinion, Bunga pads are by far your best option for dealing with lace bite pain. Bunga pads are essentially a lace bite bunga padthin, elastic sleeve with built-in gel pads that help to relieve pressure & friction on your ankle bone. Available in the Sports Med Shop!
