I own a pair of the FJ 56048 (XPS BOA). I will be the first person to tell you that the BOA's have a LOT more pros than cons, Like the Green Bay Packers have WAY more Championships than the Vikings. The intial pro is with the BOA technology, you never have to tie your shoes! My feet stay secured throughout the whole round of golf and I will loosen at the turn just to re-tighten for no reason. Not that I need to whatsoever. But that's neither here nor there. I tend to swing violently (looks like a scene out of Freddy v Jason) and I feel confident that the BOA lacing shoes are helping in my stability across my entire foot. Plus, these things are dang near indistructable. On a very rare blue moon, if one does happen to lose character and malfunction, FJ's customer service team knows how to handle the situation with the upmost professionalism and diligence.
I'm not hating on old school laces, but my man, give the BOA's a shot and you'll never look back!
