Professional soccer players think about two things when tying their cleats: comfort and support. Shoes that are too comfortable may lack in support. On the other hand, shoes that have too much support can be very uncomfortable. The goal is to tie your shoes so they are snug and somewhat stiff to offer both comfort and support. This way, you'll be able to play to your best while still protecting your feet and ankles.
