Closing / Lacing system
traditional laces They don't get loose, you get them tight in the morning and forget about it until you're taking them off at the end of the day/session. If the laces break just pot on new ones.
boa system The ones with the round thing on the side, a thin metal cord that you tighten with a round leaver. They tend to get lose during the sessions but they're way faster to tighten than the traditional laces. Harder to fix/replace by yourself if broken.
fast lock system It's like a different boa system, a thin cord that you can just pull and lock.
1 boots with a single closing system,
2 boots with a single closing system but divided in two parts,
3 boots whit a single closing system but with some trick to pull down the front pad in the center as you tighten then,
4 boots with 2 combined closing systems where one tightens the whole boot and the other tightens just the center (similar to 3)
5 and boots with 2 combined closing systems where one tightens the lower part (your foot) and the other tightens the upper part (your leg)
