Found these Boa boots by Under Armour and they are the best work shoes/boots that I have ever found. These are tactical boots designed for military and first responders who need to get their boots on and off quickly. Very lightweight.

The great thing about them is how easy they go on and off. I have big feet,13, and have always struggled with taking my shoes on and off constantly at customers houses. These come on and off so easily it is amazing. I can put on and tighten up in less than 5 seconds. The Boa system was first designed for snow board boots but now you can find the system on all kinds of shoes and boots.

Found these at a Marshalls for $49.00.

I had a local store order me a pair of redwings with BOA. But they cost more than $50

I bought them at Marshall's. Great store with great discounts. Very hit or miss. If you see it once doesn't mean that you will see it tomorrow.

Went to the local Under Armour outlet to see if I could buy a pair for my son and they did not have them.

I am getting something like these. I have been looking at "slip ons" for a while. I would like steel toe version if it exists.

In 43 years i have owned maybe 4 pairs of sandal/flip-flops. Not a big fan of slip on type shoes until about 2 years ago when i got a pair of crocs. At a project the entire house staff wore them as inside shoes so i decided to get a pair. I am done with shoe strings!

The Merrels are awesome Mac. Super comfortable. I'll bring two pairs sometimes during winter months to switch. It takes no effort

Guarantee they are more comfortable and better support then anything you have or probably ever had. WELLLLL worth the price.

I do a lot of work in attics, on roofs, and on ladders. Can't use slip on or flip flops. Need a boot that will stay on my feet.
I might get those Murrell slip ons as an inside shoe. Hate walking around in socks. Too dangerous carrying parts on hardwood stairs or floors in socks.

That might be true of I could find them in my size.

I was wrong- they do have my size.
