Rated 5 out of 5 by houdini at last! after many mistakes and beaucoup dollars spent, i finally took the advise of my nephew who works in the oilfield industry. he's been telling me for years that this is the best workboot he's ever had. light for a hardtoe boot and comfortable to no end. i'm not one to try to make my shoes last the rest of my life but it seems these might do it.the redwing arch support insoles sealed the deal. my feet are hard to fit but my dealer took the time to satisfy me. looks like you can teach an old dog new tricks!

by BigB777 Outstanding Boots These boots are great! The BOA system is great. My boots loosen as they warm up during the day and the BOA system allows me to just turn the wheel and tighten them up a couple of clicks without having to untie and tighten any laces. They snap open at the end of the day and are off. Waterproofing is excellent but I am pretty good about oiling them. I don't like new buck but that's ok as I just oiled it and they are like regular leather. I have been wearing them every work day for over 2 years and they are holding up really well.Regarding the BOA system - it is guaranteed for life. The laces and mechanism are very strong and last a long time but they do wear down with age and exposure to job site dirt and abuse. But you can get replacement parts for free from your Red Wing dealer or the BOA site online. They are easy to replace and satisfying when rebuilt. I have rebuilt mine three times - never had a lace break just wanted to tune them up.I really like the BOA system and doubt I'll have a regular pair of lace up boots again. I would like to see Red Wing make more boots with this system.
