I don't know what the method is called - but it's a British Army method and the reason for it is that the laces cross underneath and keep the tongue in place. This may not be necessary for shoe's but for boots it helps a lot.

 From what I heard, it is used because it is easier to cut the boot off if a soldier is injured and needs medical attention quickly.

I was taught to do this too in sea cadets, cept you cldnt see the lace underneath the stair casing. We were told its also a safety measure, since, if your foot is caught in something its easier to cut the boot off than the regular way of lacing shows.

In the IDF we tie a knot in one end of the lace, and thread it bar style once through. One sharp blade drawn between the eyelets will open the (7 eyelet) boot.

British Forces lacing for both shoes and boots is a different pattern which is the same as method 2 on this page http://www.fieggen.com/shoelace/shoeshoplacing.htm

I served in the Royal Air Force as did my Father and 2 of my Uncles , one pf my uncles served in the Royal Navy and another Uncle and 3 cousins served in the Army and we were all taught to tie our laces tthe same way.
