Making the switch from flat pedals to clipless and i've been out this weekend looking at shoes. I've seen a couple I like but one pair has laces, the other velcro straps. I can see the obvious advantage of velcro - no laces to get caught in the chain, but given I've been told once i'm clipped in, I can start pulling up on the pedals as well as pushing down, do velcro straps keep their strength. I have memories of velcro strapped shoes from my school days and I seem to recall the velcro losing its strength after a while. Is this likely to happen, or should it make no difference between laces and velcro?

    Velcro straps are fine pal, mine have never come loose! Take the plunge, loads easier pedalling with cycling shoes!
