    I believe the “lacing vs. racing” slogan was for the Henke Speed-Fit boots. If that be the case, the racers somewhat disparagingly referred to them as “Stinky sh**t fits”.

    REF Wk 5 trivia: I was fortunate enough to have Molitor #128′s – the moli with the lace up back as well as the front. Also a fore runner of the lace up inner boot. WRT the “adjustment phase” I found “tension laces” to be quiet effective. They were basically a form of early “bungee cord” that simply tightened throughout the day. The heck with comfort!

    You are correct that it was Henke. Love the racers’ version, I’ll have to incorporate that somehow!

    Good stuff on the “tension laces” also. I wasn’t aware of those, but they make sense.

    Thanks for reading and contributing!
