Funny, I looked hard at those earlier.

Listen to driver.  Laces. Go Vibram.  Install cleats.  Hike in them.  Be happy.  I am a completely klutz and I haven't died yet  in Vibram.  Plus, not having to hike in wading boots means more room for summer sausage and coffee.

 I was shopping for new boots last week and one of the salesman told me to avoid the Boa system for all the reasons already mentioned. He said they break all the time and are a son of a bitch to fix.

At this point the Boa has been ruled out for this purchase. I'm thinking I may go Vibram for more traction outside of the creek. I may go with one of the lighter models, however. Will see how this goes.
