What are people's thoughts on speed hooks? I'm thinking of getting boots without them ( I so far only own LWBs and PTBs) since I think they look clunky, but I was wonder how you guys felt about them/ if it's going to be too much of a pain to lace them every time. Also, is it possible to get speed hooks removed if I try and don't like them?
They eat laces
They snag on trousers
They can rip off
I REALLY wish that Alden would switch to the speedlace system from the Army:
