I think you'll like the laces. 
i've had 2 boa systems and they have always failed before the seams or felt wore out.

I'm glad I went with laces. More shoddy quality stories have been brought to my attention since ordering these. I hear the boa is hard to replace and get just right to tighten properly....? A dude told me they take theirs to a ski shop for repair.

I have a pair of Orvis Access boots new in box, size 10 for sale. These are lace up, not blo-a.

A big guy like you only wears size 10 boots?  Makes it easier to roll to your side on those PLFs back in the day, right?

I was born by the river in a little tent,
And just like the river I've been running ever since,
It's been a long, long time coming,
But I know change is gonna come.

Lol. I wear 11s. These were given to me by a guy up in PA who didn't want them. I can only wear them to wet wade.

PLFs were easy as a kid. After age 35 and the 5 pounds per year I added, PLFs became increasingly painful.

So, as some have suggested and some have opposed as I did originally, I've purchased a pair of Merrells for hiking in and out. This should lengthen the new wading boots' lifespan. I've never worn a pair of Merrells. Damn, they are light. Sweet.
