New pair of x ultra 04, laces keep coming loose, especially the right. Any suggestions appreciated, thanks!

I think I have had to replace all my round laces with flat cotton laces. As tight as I tie them, round laces seem to eventually come lose and untied. Flat cotton laces seem to hold the knot/bow almost all day.

These are the pull tight laces that came with the shoes. They are not self tie. The right shoe is worse by far than the left. Just seems odd for the generally good quality of shoe.

I have not had issues with Salomon quick pull laces and I have been using them for years, but I would contact the manufacturer if they are doing this.  If they don't make it right, at least REI will take them back.

You can always exchange them for a pair of the same.  Maybe a different pair wouldn't have the same issues.

I prefer the round laces in boots over the flat ones.  I just always double knot them.  They never come undone then.
