Is it just me!?

The first boots I had were Salomons with the boa lacing system, so I wasn't familiar with lacing up regular lace boots. So after the cheap plastic loop broke on my boot, I took them back, and decided to go with traditional lace up boots. The first place I went to, on my third boot that I tried, I pulled the lace too hard, and it slid and pulled the skin back on the inside of my index finger. Embarrassing and painful. I felt dumb, so after checking out boots there, I went to another ski shop, and guess what... yeah, same thing happened to my OTHER index finger. So now I'm missing part of the outer layer of skin on both my index fingers right below the top knuckle. Has this happened to any of you guys, and while you read this question, I'll read some lacing tips, as I'm a lace noob.

I usually wrap them around my palm of my hand if I'm going to pull on them hard...but for the most part, you don't want to strangle the crap out of your foot and lose feeling in your toes/get cold feet because the boot is cutting off circulation.

Lol, if it makes you feel any better, part of the reason I switched to speed laces is cause I'd often get mild rope burn in order to get my laces tight enough. Never actually had any skin come off though.
