I find the LF straps to work way better than the Sync's.

LF Synergys are sweet for boots though if you like open toed.

Yes, and? That doesnt stop the Sync's from being very good straps without all the hassle regarding boots.

There never will be a winner to the boots vs. straps argument - it depends on so many different things: riding style, conditions, and personal preference.

Saying that, i think more people ought to open up to boots and they should be more popular for wakestyle riding that many pursue.
