Lacing system ruins these boots....
on November 23, 2014
I own several other pair of Salomon boots, so didn't hesitate to purchase these, but let me tell you, the lacing system simply ruins them. After several months, the strings fell apart, and the lacing eyes are so tiny normal laces won't go through them. Why Salomon put this "system" on them I have no clue. It isn't at all convenient, since they don't lace as tight as any other boots. When you pull the strings tight, there is nowhere to put the extra string, and no matter what you do to "tuck" the extra lacing in it ends up falling out and you end up tripping over it, stepping on it. It is in a word ridiculous. The other Salomon boots I own all have great traditional laces, except these, which are high priced junk as a result. It's a mystery to me, but they are not worth a dime with this lacing "system" in place.
