I was looking at these boots @ my LBS examining 32 FastTrack vs Burton Speed lacing. Having the lock to secure the position is nice, but the major setback is there is no dedicated spot to comfortably hold the laces inside the boot. Wearing them around the store just a few minutes the bulge from the laces was noticeable. Maybe I did not shove them in properly, but you should not have to be told an esoteric technique. Glad thirytwo is stepping up their technology, but they need to go all the way. My money says the 2013 model will have a sleeve for the laces, but why wait I spent the extra $20 on Burton Ambush which are leaner, lighter, and have more buttery flex.
