what type of tennis shoes do you prefer, ( brand excluded) the type that lace up or the ones with velcro fasteners? Personally I take the lace up variety any day of the week over velcro.

Laces. Because crawling under a table to fasten someones velcro together cant be that funny.

Cuz its fun. You might should in vest some velcro and make sure you can watch your feet at all times.

I prefer the lace up. Even though I slide my shoes on and off without untieing them. I just think they look better than the velcro.

I seldom untie my shoes either, perhaps its just because its what I grew up with, I just like laces better.

I do not particularly like the look of velcro closures on shoes, though they have made some nicer looking ones in recent years.... but, having broken my feet across the tops several years ago they can give me grief with lace ups... so I prefer lace ups, but they have to be laced in the - fashion and not the x style. my true preference would be for slip on athletic shoes.

Oh, how I would like a pair of slip on shoes. I gave up on finding a pair some years back as they just dont seem to make them wide enough for my feet. Now its just workboots or tennis shoes.

Laced sneakers for me. I have never owned a pair that had velcro. I might change my mind when I am unable to tie my own shoes but for right now it is laces for me.

Same here, there are other things that I do like velcro on, but shoes arent one of them.

Not a big fan of velcro shoes. Makes me think of getting older for some reason and I haven't ever seen a pair that even looked very nice.

I think that they are ok for very small kids, but as for me, its laces.

I like Laces. the velcro dosen't keep your shoes tight enough.

Being in the medical field, I wear the clog kind. I really don't wear tennis shoes all that much. If I do, it's at work and it's the lace up kind. Velcro shoes are for di di di's.
