    BG S-WORKS MOUNTAIN SHOE w. BOA closure system

    Anyone ever use these Specialized shoes with the Boa Closure System?
    Comfortable? Work Good? See any Problems?

    I used the BOA closure on snowboard boats and seems great.
    Thinking about ordering them, but have not found a place to try them on.

    Thanks

    I am finding that the 07 shoes all run small. I am up a half size at least over previous models.

    I have them on my road shoes and I love them. It is super efficient, and makes for a great fit. I've ridden the classic mountain stages of the Tour de France with them and I haven't any any problems with the system at all. I highly recommend these shoes. I am guessing the design is impervious to mud.

    I wish I had waited a year for this closure to come out on their Mountain shoes, as I am frequently frustrated with the Specialized buckle system locking up when I am trying to get out of the shoe.

    Pulled the trigger on both the mountain and road shoes.

    Both shoes fit, look, and feel great!
    Have not road with them yet,

    The wallet is a little "light" this morning...

    I hope you remember which is which before you step on the pedals.

    I think you are going to really like these shoes. I wish I had the mountain pair. It will be my next footware upgrade for sure.
