I think the post you're referring to were the posts when people were talking about how easy speedhooks are and a guy demonstrated using 1 hand to "weave" them on in like 2 seconds.
All eyelets are a pain in the d*ck, but look so much better. My jeans/chinos tend to break right at the first eyelet when I cuff and wear a booth with hooks anyway, so it doesn't bother me. Some people say they get snagged on their pants. I haven't had that issue.
I tried loosening the laces on my all eyelets indy boot enough to get my foot out and there's no quick way to do it. I always have to unlace at least the first two eyelets.
Just my $.02. 74,998 cents more and you could get yourself a boot with speedhooks. :)
