I have a pair from Vogel. The laces would take FOREVER to put on/take off, so I also got zippers in the rear.
The laces make the boot fit more adjustable. No more stretching or having them taken in with calf fluctuations! Since I'm on a diet an have two other pairs of tall boots of varying width (!), an adjustable fit was a big consideration for me.
I love my rock star boots! They're modern and classic at the same time!
I will be more interested to see who chooses to wear a helmet in competition. .
Canadian riders Ashley Holzer and Jacqueline Brooks have both been wearing helmets in CDI competitions for a while now. I would not be at all surprised to see one or both of them wear a helmet at the Olympics.
