My bad. No I just meant tie the laces that come with the shoes tight. I used some of TWs terminology to explain that and confused not only you but me (on a re-read) too! And worry not, the lace holes on the B7 and 8 are bulletproof unlike the 4.3s. I pull them all tight apart from the top inner ankle hole as that can be a bit stiff and rub if pulled tight. Hope that explains things better bud.
