6.5 out of 5 STARS
Ok out of the box the right foot was a tad tight. I did not let it deter me however and after maybe 2 weeks of around town use both of them felt, for lack of a better word PERFECT. I got just under 2 years out of my first pair, and the ONLY reason they got put to rest was due to spilling battery acid on the toes of both shoes at work. Had it not been for this I am sure they would still be on my feet now as I type this.
When the time came to replace them I traveled to every outdoors store in my area searching for a new pair... I was given the same response store after store they was a slow mover solely due to the price. I would up with the same pair of shoes but without the BOA lacing, after wearing the BOAs for so long it was a huge letdown. My main complaint is that without the BOA the lace guides are too bulky and whenever I kneel down with one foot on its side the guide pokes into the side of my foot creating a lot of pain.
I am placing another order now for a replacement pair, and will surely be buying a second pair to make sure I have them on hand for when that pair goes
