Thunderbolt Peak in the Palisades

I was ice climbing with my new to me used Koflach Plastic Boots. They are the older orange ones with open cell foam inserts.

I noticed that after a few pitches that the laces were loosening and I could feel the lack of rigid support around my lower leg and ankle.

Has anyone replaced their laces and what do they replace them with?

I have used paracord in the past on basic merrell hiking boots and it wasn't too good.


I also noticed that the open cell foam inserts didn't keep my feet warm around 0F. Any cheap or used closed foam insoles available?

Thanks.

I think that's a typical boot problem. My nepals which have the round laces as most boots loosen up like crazy.

This video might help or just a general google search on how to better tie your laces.
