These are some VERY nice boots. They are about a thousand times better than my Vasque Sundowners, which I have only had for about a year. They were extremely comfortable when I tried them on in the store, and have only gotten better.
The pulley lacing system makes it easier not only to tighten the boots but also loosen them, so you end up with an all around better fit. The synerjection, where plastic matter is injected into a waterproof/breathable fabric makes them VERY waterproof, unlike my gore-tex Sundowners, which let water breathe through after a while.
My only dislike is they are also ugly, but I can live with that.
