I love the style and color of these boots. I also love the classic lace up -- I had a pair of BOAs prior to these and did not like that technology, so these are perfect for someone who agrees with that. The comfort level is high, and definitely order true to size -- I ordered a 6 when I usually wear a 6.5 and will have to exchange them; they don't stretch/expand as much as I expected they would. Get the liners molded to your foot as well. Expect a lengthy breaking in period -- at least ten trips to your local mountain/hill. Overall worth the cost as I will likely wear these for the next 5 to 7 years.
