Just a history check: when did that style of lacing start getting called "Lyriard lacing"? Because my mom taught me how to do it as a young kid, and she's been doing it since she did track in the....well, I better not say.

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis
Of course I'm not surprised AT ALL if he actually didn't invent that lacing system--he simply "popularized" it. He wasn't doing it in the 1960s; he put it in in his book in 1978. So I'd say in early to mid-1970s. I've run with 4 of the original Arthur's runners in the 1960s. 2 of them do this lacing and swear by it. Other 2 not so much.
I'm so glad I stumbled on to this thread! I've been having the same mysterious pain for awhile now and never thought it might be a lacing issue! Relacing ASAP!
My wife......VERY beginner runner was complaining about top-of-foot issues. I saw this thread or a simliar recent one. Looked into the parallel lacing and RE-laced her shoes for her in that style. Two weeks now and no paAndorra discomfort. She is shocked something that simple made that much difference.
