Quick question on fit for balmorals.
Are the uppers supposed to be laced completely shut so the edges are together? My insteps are way too prominent for this to happen with any semblance of comfort.
I have seen photos of both, for example:
Clearly the first photo's fit looks a lot clearner, just wondering if the second photo's fit is a big no-no.
The second photo shows the shoes are criss-crossed laced instead of straight-bar laced as the first photo shows.
It has been said that most of us in the beginning use the tennis shoe approach to lacing our first sets of high quality dress shoes - which is a no-no among those who know (and generally will not tell us).
Here is a You Tube Video:
