Just plain curiosity, shoe/boot laces, Over or Under?

Wambli SkaWambli Ska Posts: 4,141 Senior Member
Boot lacing the bottom eyelets.  I was taught under from childhood but every once in a while I get shoes/boots and they are laced over on the bottom set of eyelets.  Don't know if it makes a practical difference but I have to undo them and re-lace the shoes before I wear them (OCD or something more serious?!?!) or it'll drive me nuts.   The ones on the right look...  "wrong" to me.

Just did it again today and I got to wondering if it's a thing with other folks....

    Nor do my Merrell's.
    In fact, I may have bought my last lace up shoes years ago.
    That's all I got.

    Since they are passing through the same hole, they are both over while being under. Shrodingers boots.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    The holes in the crocs are a very important feature.  They let your dignity sloooooooowly ooze out.

    All my tennis shoes, work and hunting boots are laced under, the only ones that are over are a new pair of Dockers, all dress shoes are slip on's, I don't have any flip flops or crocs, i do go barefoot most of the day.

    Wait, what happened to those. $600.00 slip on boots you were so ga-ga over?
    No laces, no problem.

    I'm one of the under laced crowd, agree it probably makes no difference, but they seem easier to tighten that way, and it would just bug the hell out of me to have them over.
    Also lets me lace my shoes to suit my feet.

    I just bought the $200 Blundstones and they rock…. Wore them on my flight today.  They might become my main airport shoe 😁


    The RM Williams are under consideration but I really already have too many boots…

    Nope…. Hell I don’t even wear crazy socks anymore.  Went to a high level meeting tonight in shirt, jeans and boots…. Take it or leave it.  I’ll never dress up again 😁

    Is this not how you negotiate with the keeper of the checkbook for new boots

      That actually piques my interest. Nice looking boot there!👣
    Slip on is the only way to go thru TSA.
    That's all I got.

    On the outside chance that it matters I go with over on the left and under on right.

    Over, and then right over left. I also tie a knot in the center of the laces so they don't wander/slide too much.
