That helps me, I was thinking of some kind of solution that would just make my boot stay more tight around my high shin and calves, I tighten the laces up quite a bit but they gradually loosen themselves with all the fowrard bckward shifting. A BoA boot would be perfect, but thats not in the cards just yet, so these power straps may be the thing. or huge zip ties that i could just snap off when im done

I agree in general with Kirkwood... it's just going to be a temp fix but the bigger problem lies in bad boot fitting

WEll, maybe for the first guy. But my boots really do fit, its just as the day goes on I have to keep retieing them because the strings loosen.....and I would love not having to strip of my gloves and go heaving and tugging on my strings to get them tight again.

i guess i can fight with the guy..but in chicago, there's only 2 or 3 stores dedicated to skiing/snowboarding (besides Dicks) so having one unsatisfied customer is no big deal. Us cityfolk are assholes. hahaha. Oh well, maybe i can sell it to one of my friends or try the strap things. As of now, i have no cash flow to pay for new boots so i'm stickin it out. Thanks guys..life sucks but boarding is still fun nonetheless.

Well it may be a cheap band-aid for a real problem but when I used to play ice hockey we would wrap athletic tape around the top of our skates when we were done lacing up to help keep them from loosening and to help protect the laces.
