a good boot needs a perfect lacing. some posts next time will show you other types of boot lacing. i try to check them out and tell you if these are difficult to lace and if they are practical. today i laced up my vintage RED WING IRISH SETTER 877 with a type of ARMY LACING.
at first: ARMY LACING is very easy to practise and it allows more flex.
it is told that “Combat boots are notorious for being made of thick, sturdy leather that does not flex very easily, making them firm and uncomfortable for any manoeuvering.This lacing eliminates any crossovers that would hold down the sides of the boot, allowing the leather to crease more freely, particularly near the ankle area. … this lacing is used by the British, Dutch, French and Brazilian armies.” by IAN FIGGEN
