Boa system great, but boot is not comfy
I only lasted two days in these boots. I really wanted to like them - the BOA lacing system is so easy on your hands - no chafing from lace-tightening. However, my shins ended up with painful bruised right where the boa knob was located. I experimented with loosening the knob and took out the sole inserts but I was still in pain. Too bad - hopefully I will be able to sell mine on eBay!
Sizing - I wear a size 8 and ended up fitting into a size 7 in these boots.
