Laces or Not?
 
I was just wondering everyones opinion on boots. i need a new pair, and cannot decide between a traditional lace up boot, like the DC park boot, or something like the burton moto with the no lace system. Which ones do you like? i'm open to suggestions...

The one that fits your feet the best.

From my experience laces will yield the most custom and best fit...

But every foot is different, so a speed lace may work for you. I've had a few speed lace boots and recently went lace and I will never go back.

It's really personal preference and your foot.

yeah i definitely want comfort over ease of putting them on. i've heard good things about nike's boots, but they are pretty expensive

To the expense remark... Boots are THE single most important item in your arsenal. You can't really judge a boot by price low or high... So you can't go buy the most pricy boot and assume it's good, and a low end boot may be perfect for you as well.


And ya, I have the Kaiju's and love them. I don't see myself in any other brand for quite some time.... Nike has infinite resources and I feel they make the best boot on the market because of that. I'm not a huge Nike person, but I buy what I feel is best.... I don't buy american vehicles either, until they step it up to the level that foreign cars are on.

I agree with Milo that Nike makes a quality boot. Although from a different Nike thread, we disagree on the sizing of them.:dunno:

I have Kaiju's too and think they're great...cause they fit my feet the best. Best thing to do is try a ton of boots on. My first pair of boots, I just bought cause the guy said it was good and had it ended up being a horribly fitting boot. When I got my Kaiju's I wanted speedlaces or Boa, but the Nikes fit me so well compared to the others I couldn't pass it up. And I tried on a ton of boots from multiple stores.

I have a pair of Burton Ions with the speed lace system. They're pretty good and easy to tie up but they're starting to slip after 2 seasons. I think I'll be sending them for warranty at the end of this season.
As said before, go with the best fit. Don't even look at the prices when you're shopping.

Laces all the way.

i think laces are the most comfortable. you also don't have to worry about stuff breaking, just carry an extra pair of laces and you are set for any disaster. I don't mind taking a little longer to put on my boots to have the best fit and most comfort. I tried a double boa for a little, but didn't like it.

Went boa 5 years back and now after picking up a pair of boots with double boa I will never go back to laces.
