I love the idea of Boa speed lacing...So easy to adjust, and great to release when you're done on the hill. The dual zone lacing is great, and I was able to focus on the ankle to prevent heel lift. Unfortunately, these boots are far too tight in the toes, and I do not have wide feet. The length of the boot was fine, it is the width of the toes. If I try the next size up, they are too long and too loose in the heels. I am returning them and will get thru the rest of this season with my old Burton's.
