Its the exact same shell and liner, so you should be fine. But why are you sick of laces. You tie them once a day, and untie them once a day, how bad could that be. BOA's can be sketchy just cause they hit your boot differently than laces, possibly causing pressure points. I guess if I was you, I'd just stick with the regular T1's. They still have the external liner system, so you shouldnt ever have to untie your boots during the day.
