Oh really? You have to tighten yours? Hmm, well I guess there are pros and cons to every type of boot but I haven't had that problem....yet? *hope not*
But yes, toe caps are fantastic. I woo hoo'd during my first run with them.
Yea, and I tried two different brands with speed lacing. Salomon and Ride. Both kept loosening up after my runs. I have an aggressive riding style though. Those boots were from 2007 though so I'm sure the tech got a little better. Still, if I do the quick lace stuff, it will definitely be a BOA Focus boot.
I still love traditional laces though. Once you tighten them, you don't have to worry about them for the rest of the day.
