It's a fine art. With regional variations on the most desirable lace up. There is also the factor of age, the older you get, the more likely you are to stop blood flow to your feet by pulling the laces so tight they are barely visible. My nan and her air max 90s... nah, im joking this time, she has trainers from Clarks, but she longs for the variations of nike air max. I'm thinking about taking her in for an ID session and documenting it, but that's a whole other story. Then there are those youngsters whose shoes might fly into your face as they pass you running for the bus as they see no function in the actual use of laces. It's pretty simple to me, its about style and what looks good. So how come so many people mess it up on such a shocking level?
Simplicity might just be beauty in this case. Anybody going to try the riding bow tonight? I'm thinking about it, lol.
