I was so excited when my new DC Judge boots arrived, they fit well and the boa system was so easy. Wore the boots for two days and I was really enjoying the fit and the boa system, but at the end of the second day the lower BOA cable on my left boot would not loosen all the way. My son had a good laugh as I threatened to cut if off my foot and struggled for 15 minutes to finally get it off my foot. I was most impressed with Dogfunk and how easy they made returning the boot and refunding my money. I will give BOA and maybe DC another try next season and I will definitely buy again from Dogfunk.
