anybody ride these yet? ive seen pictures and the lacing system looks almost identical to the "speed zone" lacing system on burton snowboard boots. personally not a big fan of the burton boots, but mayb they ironed out the kinks for the watsons?
any input would be great cuz im gonna order them pretty soon.

Haven't seen the actual pictures, but I'm LOVING the graphics on the LTD line from LF.

The new 2010 LF website went live today. They don't have the Limited stuff up yet, but for everyone that hasn't seen the new line, check it out.

I could be wrong, but it looks like the Watson lacing system is the same standard 2 zone lacing system they have had for a while. Simple is better. I'm over Boa, ratchet straps, velcro and anything else that looks better than it works.

Ok, that does look like Burton. They also look really tall off the base. That might not be so good for rails. I do like the simple black style of the Watsons.

The last few years Shane’s boots have been hideous. I normally don’t buy based on looks, but but I have to draw the line somewhere. Its too bad because I would like a more mellow boot.

I tried on a pair of burtons a couple years back with that lacing system. put my foot in the boot, pulled on the cord and rippe the cord right out of the boot. The salesman said " about something with laces"

I have a pair of 2009 Burton Ion boots and haven't had any problems with them so far. They are much easier to tighten up than lace bindings and is so easy to loosen them up. I know people hate on Burton because they are the "corporate" snowboard company, but their speed lace system works.

yeah that is too bad they did that to such a sick boot. LF had this on their team bindings like 5 years ago. one of my friends has them and i think both boots had issues the first season. If it were me I would steer clear until proven different. what is another 15 sec whe lacing up bindings anyway? i dont get it...

Can you replace the laces when they snap?

I was wondering that myself (if they could be replaced)...LF laces snap on me all the time. I think I'll be passing on these..I'm not willing to be a guinea pig for their LTDs and have to warranty a pair every other week again.

The website link in the second post has been updated and now has photos of the bindings.

looks cool but have to wonder about durability. Laces will snap for sure, especially for cable riders so I hope there is a way to replace them.
