    Best boots I've ever owned
    August 21, 2016
    These boots have got to be the lightest boots I've ever owned. They are tough, waterproof and they don't hurt my feet after wearing them to work all day! I will definitely be ordering these again! By far my favorite boot I've ever owned.

    Good, sturdy boot overall..
    August 5, 2016
    ..so far they have been a great pair of working boots. I am in them about 12 hours a day minimum.
    Pros:
    The securing system has taken a little getting used to, but works really well. The boots are comfortable, but feel a bit bulky..like being in snow or ski boots and very warm.
    Cons:
    The boots do feel a bit bulky and they are very warm in the summer. A second pair of boots (doesn't have to be the same kind) might be a good idea, so you can rotate through your work week.

    Poor quality
    March 14, 2016
    Had these boots about 6 months when the interior completely wore out. They got so bad I couldn't wear them a full shift due to the irritation they were causing on my Achilles tendon. I contacted Blauer and they requested pictures of the boots. I sent them several pictures showing the interior of the boot. Blauer response was that the pictures weren't clear and they needed the boots sent to them for "inspection". Don't waste your time on these boots.
    Pros:
    Cool lace system
    Cons:
    Poor quality and horrible customer service (from Blauer)

    Fantastic boots... unless the lacing breaks.
    March 8, 2016
    Bought these boots a year and a half ago based on positive reviews and interest in the BOA system and have been wearing them as EMS duty boots in a suburban system. They're exceptionally comfortable, fairly well ventilated, light, waterproof, can be tightened to fit well, and have saved me from rolling my ankle once or twice. They're in overall good condition and still waterproof with the only major wear being fraying of the nylon coating on the lace, which is a (freely) replaceable part. The BOA lacing really does make these boots quick to don and doff even when waking up in the dark. Unfortunately, the BOA lacing is also their biggest flaw. The knobs protrude about 2cm from the front of the boot and occasionally snag on objects and release. At about the one-year mark, I caught the knob on one boot on a metal step and, with minimal force, the entire knob came loose. The plastic component that's sewn into the tongue and holds the knob had cracked at the screw hole; it appeared surprisingly thin. I contacted both Blauer and BOA and learned that specific component is in a warranty/service gray area: BOA replaces user-serviceable parts and Blauer only replaces boots under a 6-month warranty for defects and can't service boots. While I was considering my options, the lace on the other boot broke suddenly and I realized that unlike standard laces, it's difficult to temporarily repair it and impossible to get a replacement the same day. I'm now regretfully buying a more conventionally-laced pair of boots.
    Pros:
    Comfortable, light, simple and quick to put on, wear well.
    Cons:
    Single point of failure. Lace wears out.

    Great Boots. Durable.
    January 29, 2016
    Great everyday use. Durable. Comfortable. It's nice that you don't have to lace and unlace your boots.
    Pros:
    Comfortable. Makes lacing boots easy.
    Cons:
    Not steel toe.

    BOA lacing system is perfect
    September 1, 2015
    I have owned a pair of these that I wear for patrol duties for 2 years now. I also have the BOA lacing system on my hiking boots that I bought through Cabela's. This system is awesome. Simple, quick, easy, and comfortable. Pull and the boot is completely open to remove. Click it closed and dial it to the perfect snug fit you prefer. They are indeed, waterproof from my experience. Someone on here said they aren't durable enough and I'm not sure what they mean by that. I have worn them in fields, creek bottoms, climbing, in the dirt, snow, and mud, on rocky terrain, gravel roads and highways. I clean them up and wear them to court. I don't know how you find a more versatile, easier to don/doff boot!
    Pros:
    Easiest and quickest lacing system I have ever used and I have been in military, law enforcement, and security for over 25 years. Durable sole COMFORTABLE cushioned padding inside. Treads are made for everything and, after 2 years(about 3,500 hours), still have some life left in them.
    Cons:
    Well, on lace on my hiking boot became frayed (plastic coating around steel cable) and would not reel very well. BOA sent me a free replacement and it was simple to replace. Lifetime warranty!.

    Great boot
    July 2, 2015
    These boots feel awesome. Very light almost like wearing sneakers. But lacking in durability.
    Pros:
    Very comfortable, lightweight no boot laces breaking.
    Cons:
    The boots lack durability. They barely lasted Me a year and I have to buy another pair. The material above the heel ripped right off. THIS WOULD HAVE HAD A 5 STAR RATING if it wasn't for this. I wish their was a way to challenge all companies that make boots. Make a boot that is durable enough to last longer than a year.

    Most comfortable boots I have ever worn
    July 18, 2014
    These boots are extremely comfortable. Feels like I am wearing slippers, yet provide good support. The convenience of the BOA system and the lack of laces to catch on things is a big plus. I have only had them a couple of weeks and it has been dry so I haven't gotten the chance to observe how well they keep out water yet, however, the design and construction leads me to believe that I will not be disappointed. I work for a Sheriff's Office (33 years). Traction has been good on both pavement and in the woods and fields.

    Good Boots
    April 29, 2014
    These boots are very comfortable out of the box. True to size. The BOA lacing system is nothing short of awesome! They come off and on quick and effortlessly, 100 times better than side zip boots.
    Pros:
    -Light -Comfortable -True to size -Lacing system is the selling point -Good traction in the snow
    Cons:
    Because the boot is new I was unable to find any reviews on the durability of the boot.

    Very Cool
    November 30, 2013
    Just ordered my second pair after wearing them for two days. I hate zippers as those press into my ankle bone. I have hard to fit feet with high insteps and though one of the eyelets on the inside lower of the left presses a bit into the top of my foot, it isn't too bad. These go on and come off way easier than any boot you have ever wore. You can keep the laces a bit looser because with the BOA design there is no knot to untie. Then snug them up when you need to, or as the day goes on, just a click or two and they are secure on your foot and leg shin. It is like a cross between a snow boot, a snow board boot, and a work boot. I wish the heel were just a bit taller, but not a huge deal. Not the lightest boot, or the most flexible, but excellent ankle and sole support at a good price. Showed them to a few others at work and they thought the boot was "Crazy Cool!"
