The Korkers look interesting, but for me they're just too gimmicky--that removable sole system looks like it could be prone to failure. Same goes for the BOA and similar lacing systems, for the reasons others have mentioned. I like having good old-fashioned laces.
Scott the new version of the Korker Chromes are 'bullet proof.' The initial design was a very good idea, however the actual construction of the boots left a lot to be desired. Those issues were addressed and the new Chromes are excellent. The thing I like the best is the size of the opening when you pull the tounge forward. The size of an open bucket. Very easy on and off.
