The new Rome system is not good in my opinion. It doesn't lace enough of the liner and it kind of hard to work (I guess if you are not used to it). We'll see how it does when it hits the market next year...
oxi, are you saying you want the laces on the liner (as opposed to a heel harness)? Or are you just looking for somehting that you would tie (as opposed to a slide lock, quick cinch, etc.)? There is nothing that I am aware of that ties (like a shoe/the shell of the boot), but Nike boots all have a shoe lace for the liner with a quick slide latch that I am shure you could break off and then tie them using the nice puff shoe lace that is on the liner.
