This looks like more of a liner, all good race liners are lace up, same for snowboard boots.
If they release a raichlele design boot, understand that it will be the same as ft, dalbello, nordica...just with a swooosh. A gimmick,
The raichele design is from the 70s, doesnt anyone want more than ancient history with marketing programs and different color schemes?
The design is great, better than anything else, but the future is out there, and its not a brand or leather tongue....
