It’s just how they lace. I never go all the way to the top anyway and even if the last one is crossed you’ll never see them on the foot. This isn’t me minimising you’re displeasure just pointing out the relative value especially on sale items versus changing a lacing pattern.I like the look of the bar method just fine, but it's a little less ideal with an odd number of eyelets. I think this is nothing more than them being aware of QC issues and using the bar method to minimize the look of it, instead of getting better QC. "hey, we're aware our car's paint doesn't stand up to the rain, so only drive it when the sun is out. Problem solved!"
