Traditional laces, adjustability vs Speed lace and boa. Are they a bit crap?
Yo yo yo.
So i need my first new pair of boots. Have snowboarded for 3-years on hand-me down kit from my bro and need to step up to some decent boots to hit some of the bigger features. Freestyle/jumpy kind of rider who also likes speed and roaming the mountain all over the shop.
So everyone says "traditional laces have the most customization fit" but correct me if i'm wrong, surely the laces all even out after about an hour and you have equal pressure everywhere? Surely a 2-zone lace is much more customisable as the lower half can be done separate to the upper?
Reason I ask is I like 32's. Toss up between prime/tm-two but the lacing has got me edging towards the lashed fast track instead. Problem is these felt on the squishy side in the store and they advised me they end up breaking down into a super comfy but limp boot.
Can anyone offer me any consolation on how to customise the fit of a traditional laced boooooot? Otherwise i might wing it with the lashed fasty
Laces are the most adjustable I think. Then BOA, then speed laces. Hate speed laces. I have been tying work boots as long as I can remember, snowboard boots aren't much different. There are a ton of ways to have the strings hold seperate zones, from going around the boot to crossing strings.
