Snowboardingfix First of all - nice deal find. I'll have to check out the link.

I am a big fan of the Kaijus. They were the most comfortable for me and to be honest, that is really all that matters. The standard laces, in my opinion, are the most reliable. I have never had trouble with them.

Enjoy the great deal you got on those though. Again, great find. Thanks for it.

When you just snug up the BOAs the ankle starts to expand out from the boot before you even start to flex it. They spent no time or effort on the BOA routing placement.

Find somewhere to try on Salomon or 2014 and newer DC.

Alkasquawlik They're fine? They're standard laces.

I don't like or trust the BOA system, so I have and always will be a traditional lace guy.

FWIW, these were one of the top selling boots at both shops I've worked at. Not sure whether that's all hype marketing or what, but they sold well and people seem to like them. I have a couple friends in the ZF1 (traditional laces) and they enjoy them. Too stiff for me personally, I ride the Kaijus.
I really wanted the Kaijus but went with the BOA system. How are the laces with the Kaijus? I wanted to try a lace system but am so used to BOAs.
