Meadowwrote a review of K2 Snowboards T1 SPDL Snowboard Boot - Men's on December 30, 2011
I tried on both the T1 standard lace up and the T1 speed laces. To my surprise the speed lace version takes longer and feels less secure than the standard laces. After tightening the speed laces you have to wrap the remaining lace around this little plastic piece that doesn't really hold the laces in place. Def not something you could do with gloves on. Failed design in my opinion.
As a boot overall, the T1 is super comfortable, stiff, and looks to be really high quality.
Bottom line: Buy the the standard lace up system over the "speed laces"
