I ride lace up Adidas much like those in the article above for both the track and the road--They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I bought several pairs in the late '90s for about $40/pair when they were discontinued. I have had to glue the soles of each pair back on once--Gorilla glue works very well for this purpose. I am jazzed to see Adidas offering this kind of shoe again, although at an outrageous price; guess I'll just have to pony up and buy some.
As for straps, If you are doing any kind of sprint event, I recommend you use a double strap. Many find doubles useful for standing start events also.
