It's not so much tying as re-tying or double-knotting then untying wet laces. Fuck that. Plus lets say you want to loosen your boots on the lift, more bullshit I say...

I learned like 30+ years ago and it never got harder. But I've always been called a bit of a prodigy when it comes to lacing up my shoes and boots, so maybe I'm just super gifted and should be more understanding of you lesser beings.

Fancy lacing systems are so fancy and fast, it takes me like a good 45 seconds to tie my boots, everyones like WTF is up wiht this guy can we go snowboarding now....



fwiw I have a pair each of Lashed and TM2 and they are both traditional lacing. I'm probably a 1/4 size, so I wear 9's with the liners switched on em and they frankenfit great.
