(Me, I've worn boots with buckles pretty much exclusively for the last ten years, so I don't even get to answer my own question. This page is tempting me to go out and get a pair of sneakers, though...)

In terms of lacing, I go with the good old tradition of criss-cross lacing.
With tying my shoes (I knew that was so your next question...unless this question has already been asked), I have used the Double Loop technique for so many years that I'm not sure I could do it the "traditional" way.
My dad taught me the over-under for my shoes when I was a kid.
When I got my first pair of 9+ eyelet boots, my best friend taught me the Straight (European) Lacing for them.

I use Criss-Cross and Over-Under, but I'm not sure which I use more. The consistent part of my lacing is the way they cross from one eyelet UP to the next eyelet on the other side.
As far as tying, I use the standard and double shoelace knots, though I did feel bad that they called the double shoelace knot "crude". I never had a problem untying it unless the kids have been mucking with the laces and made 'em over-tight.
