Default Top of boots getting loose

Been dealing with this problem for a bit and am happy to continue to deal if there's no solution....


Is it normal that if I tighten my boots at the top of the mountain that they'll be loose by the time I get even halfway down? I love the responsiveness I get with tight boots, but it gets so washy so fast.

I have 2013(14?) salomon malamutes size 12.5 for what it's worth. Here's a couple pics of the top clasping mechanisms.

Thanks for the input in advance!

Assuming its the speed lace type with a slider thingy....loose the slider thingy and you can just tie the speed lace like a regular bow knot at the top. You could also get a Velcro strap and wrap it around at the top of the cuff...kind of like a power wrap strap

under normal use boots that new should not loosen on their own.
are the laces grabbing the teeth properly?

Wrathfull - great suggestions. May have to get a Velcro strap.

Speed - it sure looks to me like the little red string is going into the teeth/holders right. But who knows. There are teeth/holders for the lower half of the boot and they sure hold me in place though.
