Thanks for the info. I returned my T1s and plan to pick up some 2013 Burton Imperials. I'm sure it would have worked out fine once I was on snow but from my adjustments of the green harness I just couldn't get rid of the pressure on my ankles when strapped into my board and leaning forward. Plus the T1s may have been a bit stiff for my liking, even though it seems like you can make them pretty forgiving. I never planned to buy Imperials and wanted traditional laceup but after trying on this year's Imperials they just felt better all around (for my feet at least) than the T1, 32 Tm Two, and Vans Wiig. The right amount of stiffness with a 7/10 flex I'd like for all mtn freestyle. I've used quick lace systems before and have to admit they are super quick, never broke, and easy to give two quick pulls halfway through the day if needed.
