is there a lacing system for the liner, or is it just the velcro at the top?
Yup, the liner has a full ankle support lacing system that attaches to inside bottom of the boot. (not actually attached to the liner -- which is actually a better construction than ones attached to a liner) The liner itself just Velcros on the top, but believe me, you won't have any issues with it. That NEW design came directly down from Jake Burton himself who rides more than all of us!
This boot is by far the best Boot I have ever ridden!!! The "holy shit" outsole is crazy-good. Lateral support with medial flex! banger!
