    ... and when I opened the box, they were already laced. I had to go up a half-size, so when I went back to the store I asked the guy if they came laced or if they hung out in the back room lacing shoes. He assured me that they came that way from the factory. Never seen that before. Is this, like, a new thing?

    When was the last time you bought shoes? I can't remember when they didn't come laced.

    My guess would be that already laced means already worn.

    Someone might have needed them for a day, or they might not have been the right fit.

    Of the last half-dozen pairs of shoes that I bought over the last two years, maybe one pair came laced. The others had maybe one shoe partially laced, or neither shoe laced.

    Historically, if they were laced it meant a customer had tried them on.

    Maybe a couple of years ago-- Nike walking shoes. The laces were in on the bottom hole or two, but not all the way up.

    Mr. Young Outdoors Store Guy assured me that they all come like that. No wonder China has nearly full employment; they must have a million people doing nothing but lacing shoes.
