Default A word of advice for those buying boots...

My friend just bought a pair of Solomon boots with their latest quick lacing system, and I just wanted to let everyone know that I don't think that it is a good system at all... The inner layer pulls down a string like most other boots, but the part that you pull on makes it REALLY hard to tighten properly. Also, the outer lacing system is almost just like a normal lacing system except you can't tie the laces together, you have to try to latch the end to the side of your boot!!! Let's just say that it doesn't work very well at all... All of their lineup this year has this system too except their 4 cheapest models (Brigade, Symbio, Sonic Y, & Talapus). Note that this is just my opinion, but it really seems to me to be a bad engineering design and I wanted you potential buyers and advice givers my opinion on this. So if you can find other boots that fit you well I would suggest them over these...

Uh...I don't get it? How is this a bad engineering design?...These boots aren't hard to lace at all...as for the handle...there's an inner pocket for it on the inner tongue...

Actually, they tell you to have the outer handle clipped to the side edge of your boot. Because of that it is not quick or easy to have an end result that is tight... Just my $0.02.
