    Default HELP: Elastic laces on field boots

    Ok... I'm used to my old field boots with regular laces where you tie them in the middle but my new boots came with an elastic lace knotted on each end. The lace is not long enough to do the traditional lacing pattern with a bow in the front so do I just leave them laced like they came out of the box with no bow?

    Generally boots with elastic laces don't need to be relaced or have a bow.

    Generally you just leave them. I don't know of anyone that's tried to retie elastic ones.

    The elastic laces provide a much neater look. Don't fuss with them.

    You could always swap them out for real laces - I had to do that because the elastic wasn't tight enough for me skinny foot!
