Default question about lace system

Hello, good day, i have one question after snowboarding when you take off your boots do you need release all lace system or keep it strong like you would wear a boot (my boots are with boa system)

p.s i mean you dry your boots and after that when you are not going to snowboard for example like for a week do you tighten them or not? If i understand correct they can lose a shape or not?

Thanks

If your boots arw BOA I would tighten the cables after taking them off. That helps prevent you cable from getting kinked or frayed l. Which if that happens means you are going to have to replace the cable.

I will loosen my uppers to use a boot dryer but when I am transporting the boots the cables are snug.

Thanks for the input, in other words you say i need to tighten my lace system like i would use them when i snowboard right?

One question after session on a mountain you take your boots off and inside the boot there is like second boot i dont know how it is called and sometimes i feel that its wet so i take that boot from a main boot and leave over the night to fry do i am doing right? Or i can leave everything inside and no need to dry second boot,

this is what i am talking about http://i.imgur.com/pqKHr78.jpg this is a boot in a boot.

Thanks

I dry both the shell and the liner; take the liner out of the shell, take the insole out of the liner....dry overnight on air flow diy dryer...no heat. Btw I don't lace up or tighten the boa...but I'm not obcessive. take a look at below

No it is not bad if you tighten your BOA. I am not saying crank them super tight either. Just snug them up before you transport them. I learned the hard way if the laces are loose you can more easily snag them on things and kink them. It only takes a couple of seconds to do.

Right or wrong (in terms of heat), this is what I use: PEET Shoe Dryer Product Overview

I just keep the liners in the boot because they are a bitch to pull in and out and I'm lazy.

Works fine for me.

When I get home after a day riding I usually take my boots out, open them up all the way (all the laces loosened, liner pulled open as far as I can) and let them air dry for awhile. I don't normally* remove the liner from the boot, just let them air out and dry.

I never re-tighten them but my boots go back into a boot compartment on my gear bag and are never just loose tossed in a closet or in the trunk of the SUV when driving to/from the resort.

*Last year after a day of spring riding, my boots were fairly wet and I forgot to get them out to dry right away. That created the funk in the boots that makes your hair curl so in that case I did pull the liners and insoles and let them all air out separately.
