I got some new boots.
Blauer contacted me and asked me to do a review on their new line of boots. They provided me one pair for free in exchange for the review.
The boots have the BOA Dialed in System. I never saw it before and as I was unpacking the boots, I almost cut the "shoestrings" !!. This system uses a small bit of plastic instead of a shoestring. It is like a heavy mono-filament fishing line. Pull the big knob and release the shoestring. Then to tighten, simply turn the knob. I like it. If you pull on the "shoestring" you can tighten up the area at the bottom or in the middle if that parts not tight enough for you. I find it an interesting system and it eliminates the untied shoe problem.
This is their website. They offer a wide range of boots.
I wore them on a painted concrete floor for four hours and they were not only comfortable, but they were not slippery on the concrete surface. I wore them without any break-in period. The boots were not hot and the padding around the tops was comfortable. I anticipate updating the review after I have worn them for a while. I recommend them; that's what the SGT Says.
