I have the focus boa's. Got them before the season started, have logged around 30 days so far this season in them and they are holding up very well. I had on problem the second time I wore them. I had pulled the boot apart too hard I believe when I went into the lodge for a lunch break which then resulted in extra slack around the dial. When I tightened them back up to go out I actually wrapped the wire over itself. Not knowing this at the time I was pissed when I tried taking my boots off at the end of the day and my bottom lace on my right foot would loosen about 1/2 inch. Took three of us pulling to finally get it off. But after about 5 minutes of taking the dial off and replacing the lace everything was fine. I called thirty-two and bitched that I already had to use my replacement lace and they sent me five free ones that arrived in about a week and I live in NY. So if you get them don't pull the sides apart as hard as you can when loosening them up. Might run into the same problem as I had.
More about the boots...I have a size 10.5, heat molded them and absolutely love them. I think they are very comfortable, they are super light which is why I was looking at them, and so far seem to be durable. Oh and they are warm or my feet tend to be hot, I don't know. I tend to wear a thin pair of snowboard socks with them even when it's only 0 out. Any other questions on the focus boa's I'll do my best to help. Never tried the circuit boots though.
