You don't want them to lace up tight. These seem maybe...maybe...borderline but I could comfortably predict that, all things being equal, by the time the shoes are a year old the facings will be only about a quarter of an inch apart. Every time you lace the shoes up, the facings will get just a tiny bit closer together. If they ever finally lace up tight, you'll have nowhere to go as the shoes stretch and accommodate themselves to your foot..
You have to understand that, esp. with manufactured shoes, very little of the stretch inherent in the leather has been taken out during lasting. Some yes, but there's plenty in reserve. The simple fact is that patterns are designed to more or less "fall" on the last and all the lasting machine has to do it take out the slack and snug the leather up to the last.
The idea that a shoe should fit like an old slipper upon first wearing is a little wrong-headed. I'm not advocating buying shoes tight to the point of discomfort but the reality is that shoes will stretch....will stretch. Think about it, if they are loose now, do you think they will get tighter with wear?
