probably both, always thought the point of speed hook is you can do it quickly, and this just feels both high and spaced tightly, though I can see it if you definitely want it under cuffed denim
so my thinking of getting speed hooks is a bit different.. I have wide feet and a high instep.. due to which in most boots i have to remove the laces from the top eyelet and then loosen the laces so that my foot goes in comfortable..

i don't mind loosening and tightening the laces.. but i hate taking the lace out of the top eyelet (sometime 2) and putting them in again eveytime. A solution is longer laces, but then when i tie up longer laces then it sometimes looks bad as they dangling around.

hence i prefer the 3 speed hooks. for me lacing them is much easier... So for me personally, the position does not matter.. as long as they are there and are sturdy.. i am happy

and it not showing under some slight high cuffed denim is a bonus
