Those are pretty cool laces, but I just want to be able to tighten them up easily.
That seems like far too much work to lace up shoes like that. Mine are standard, run-of-the-mill, plain old criss-crossed, under-through-over type lacings.
I agree.. keep it simple... but I can tell you my daughter thought these were fantastic and promptly started whipping out new laces to work with and within half an hour had her PF Flyers ready to go. I have to laugh .... I can remember a few years back having sneakers with velcro flaps on them. (How UN-cool is that?)
