Is it at all possible to straight lace boots that have seperate loops coming out of the shoe?

I always straight laced my shoes another way, but this way is like a 1000 times easier and I have never thought of doing it like this before, thanks!

I learned to straight lace from a bum when i was waiting to meet some friends before a show. I was too lazy to lace them before I headed out but I needed to kill time so I started lacing them and he told me to stop. He said he used to be in the air force and that if i was going to wear the boots I had to wear them right :P

He was a pretty cool guy, I ended up chilling with him for about an hour because my friends were late.

there sure are some crazy ways to lace shoes on that website. i'd like to try the ladder one, but i'm constantly taking my boots off, and i just don't think it'd be practical. maybe i'll do 'em up like that when i know i'll be in them for a while.

I work at Journeys in the local mall,
we 'display bar lace' all of our display shoes.
(that's where you pull the lace under the tongue,
and it makes people want to ask for their size
rather than stuff their feet into the small-ish,
lace-cluttered display) but after someone purchases
their shoes we're supposed to 'straight bar lace',
where the laces aren't pulled under the tongue.
When we're slow I mess around with shoes in the
back and come up with loads of different ways to lace.
Some styles look better on certain brands, but I'll
take some pictures the next chance I get and
post them up if anyone's interested tho,
what do y'all think?

Since straight-lacing can sometimes be associated with skinhead-nazis you guys should probably avoid the colors red and white when they're laced that way. I knew a kid who got the shit beat out of him 'cause he was donning red, straight-laced boots and wasn't aware of the association.

.... HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA

Thanks for the concern... but you're preachin' to the choir on this one bebe.

If I worried about people thinking I was a skinhead, I probably wouldn't have my hair cropped, wear my pants a bit cuffed, straightlace my boots, wear polos, braces, or loafers. I probably wouldn't be dating one, either. Honestly, I don't mind it at all when people think I'm a skinhead. Skins are hard workers and have an rich (and colorFULL) musical tradition. I don't know if you know this or not, but being a skinhead has nothing to do with being racist... and the color of your laces/the way you tie them is a system that lost any real validity when the revival died down, and I think most people know that these days. It's truly unfortunate about your friend... probably just a case of wrong place wrong time, eh?

I'm honest to Christ not trying to come across as mean spirited here, but maybe before you try to educate us about skinhead culture, you should educate yourself. There's SO much information on the web about skins. Please read up.
