Picked these up and wore them on a 4-day trip right out of the box. Comfortable and warm. I have wide feet, size 9 and I found the 9.5's I bought a bit snug but as the trip went on I found they packed out a bit and were very comfortable.
The lacing worked awesome. Easy to tighten and loosen. I found you need to stop after 5-10 minutes and re-tighten because you tighten from the top down (upper ankle), as you move the looser part by your toes moves up so you need to re-tighten to remove this part of slack. This might happen a few times but it is so easy to do with mitts on it is no hassle.
