Adidas hammer shoes

I was wondering if anybody has used the Adidas Hammer shoe. I was thinking about getting some, but I'm a little worried about the lacing system. Apparently, it doesn't need to be tied, which is good. I've never thought laces were a good idea on a cycling shoe. Does it hold your foot securely? Is it comfortable?

I have used a few mtb shoes with similar lacing systems and they work well. I have also had a few Adidas mtb shoes and they were very durable. I would think you would not have a problem with them.

Do the laces just get tied? Or are they tensioned by a ratcheting wheel like on some snowboard boots? Or are they something else entirely? I can't find a good picture of the laces.
