It's ok, not for advanced riders
I think this boot is a solid for beginner riders. I have worn this boot all season and ridden pretty hard. I think I am done with the express lace system all together. This boot would often come loose and that was definitely bothersome. From now on I will stick to traditional laces. It's the only type you really have control over.
I give props to this boot on comfort level. Definitely one of the most comfortable boots I have worn (if it stays tight.)
