Are the laces actually loosening or are the soft tissues of your feet compressing and giving up volume as body fluid is squeezed out?

One year during ski season I had a lot of trouble with edema (fluid buildup in my feet an lower legs) and I had to keep cranking down on my buckles every morning all morning until all the puffyness was squished away. (I like my ski boot rock solid on my foot to maximize control)

Another thing going on could be stretching of several things at the same time ... the laces, the whole upper of the boot and the upper right at the eyelets.

My wife races the Semi-Race 3 point and she uses a two lace system in order to separately control the lower portion and upper portion.
