I don’t know the answer to that Tim. Most US Military boots are cross laced unless they are dress or parade boots . The airborne used to straight lace their dress boots after they went from Brown to Black jump boots . They used white parachute shroud lines for contrast and straight laced them. Of course there was always a couple of over achievers that went a little overboard , like this guy ;)

Thanks, Burt!

It is, though relocating back home has hit us "harder" than expected.
The girls miss the sun, the warmth and their Andalucian friends...

Happy birthday Burt,
I managed to pick these up a month or so ago - a pair of redwing 'munson ranger' boots- essentially a ww2 service boot, a wider toe than iron rangers and a brogue detailed toe cap. Now I know these were limited editions, so I'm almost scared to wear them! I took a chance on them and it paid off
