Their 2012 Rad's
I have the 2011 RAD boots, but with liners and laces from 2012 RADS which makes them essentially 2012 rad boots.
anyway... i believe that the lower lace of your boot must be tightly pulled into the teeth of the hardware on the side of the boot that holds the laces locked. If I have assumed right, you will need to pull the lace downward and in the direction of the toe of the boot to unlock the lace. you should be able to loosen the laces with one finger if they are truly unlocked from the teeth.
on some falls the laces can get TIGHTLY jammed in those teeth lock things.
I made a ridiculously in-depth 2 part video about the RADs when they came out. you may find something useful if you can bare watching it all. but for the laces you can jump to 6:15 on the video below (the video is just the plain 2011 rads and not my current ones patched with 2012 parts)
