Also make sure they are not twisted, My first OC used to say this on parade:

"Twisted Laces, Twisted mind. Show Parade for this one Sergeant Major!!" :roll:

i cant believe anyone would wear any other colour, but i suppose field boots with green paracord laces smothered in polish wont hurt anyone

I cant belive you didnt realise he was taking the piss, he even said so. :lol:
And covering your paracord laces in polish not hurting anyone, who you kidding. Overdo the polish and you could easily lose grip when tightening and hit your hand off a table or chair and this could lead to permanent downgrading.

and very green, plant a wood on the hockey pitch making it self sustaining, using the crucified upgraders as compost .... I like it

also the lack of parking because of the hockey pitch forest, makes more whinging upgraders.... and more compost :D :D :D

Ahhhh! Laces - leather, ammo boots for the use of!

They came (steady) as a pair entwined, quite erotic, devoid of polish, a bit chunky. You were then 'invited' to iron them flat then bull them until they shone - it is possible but a disappearing skill. Once they were shining, glistening and spotlessly flat, they wre not used in the boots ammunition previously mention. NO! They were rolled into a circle which looked like the likorish (deliberate spelling) strings sold in sweet shops.

It really takes me back (40 years next year). As to how they were actually used ( or rather the spare pair hidden in your locker), knot at one end, the lace threaded through all lace-holes (steady again), wrapped round the ankle and secured by tucking in the last tuck.

Zimmers - you just have to love them!

What is wrong with that, I still do it this way with both my Mil boots and Civ boots.

I was taught that if you broke your leg/foot, it was far easier to get the boot off when secured like this because they only had to whip a blade up the laces and the boot would be undone. By using both lace ends, you have to keep cutting individual bits to free the boot.
