Pfanner boa boots

Recommended Posts

tink i'd prefer a basic lace setup as i reckon you can't go wrong with tried and tested 'technology'.  That system on the Boa boot looks loike a gimmick to me and i too would be concerned about damaging the adjusters.

Seem them at forestry show and said the exact same, lifetime guarantee on the syysttem, which doesn't help u go to work if they're away getting fixed.

 

Also my other thought was wot happens if u have a bad accident and medics need to remover ur boot??

Do them not normally cut the laces off ( well they do on TV shows) taking a bit of cutting those laces, a boots themselves will be bad cutting FF chainsaw proof.

 

Clever idea but really solving a problem that doesn't exist

I use working boots with boa since two years, as expected they are Not treatened with love and show no sign of wear. 

I bought them after I had a Job in a roofers garden where I saw them. 

He told me, he has his since two years and wears them everyday on the roof and on the weekend for yardwork at home. I insantly bought a pair. 

The boa laces spoiled me so bad, I don't wanna wear shoes without it anymore, as it's so comfortable. I don't know, what I like more, closing the mechanism or opening it... what an invention. Now I got a pair for the weekend as well as my wife.

I did a bit of research on the "lacing " system and it has been around for quite a while on other footwear and it seems the replacement parts are cheap and readily available , it is just that every time I look for replacement boots there is even more choice than the last time !!  hard to decide but I really do not like the massive bulky  looking solid soled boots on offer that look like they are for mountaineering ....the BOAs are flexible ..

Hi All

We have sold over 100 pairs and not had a single complaint, only heard good things.

I think it will take a while for people to get into them, I also think it wont be long before the other manufacture start doing the same.

If anyone is unsure. Feel free to buy a pair, try them on & have a walk around indoors, and if you don't like them send them back for a full refund. It's one of those items you need to see and try to fully appreciate.

Hi

We don't keep it in stock yet, as no call for it. But it's overnight to us anyway.

And not sold any so not sure on the price. But cant imagine it will be expensive.

I’ve had the boots for nearly 2 months now, lightest comfiest boots I’ve ever had.

  I don’t understand the panic about the lace system, laces are rubbish, lots of flaws, snap easy, gets soaked in crud and when your hands are freezing and your back is sore, it’s a pita tying and un tying them, they have been needing an improvement for decades.   The Boa system is great, twist and go!
