I'm going to second the Northwaves. I have a pair of Northwave Freedom SLs. They are the most comfortable boot I've tried on (~10ish pairs in-store) and are equally as comfortable on the mountain. The SL system isn't BOA, but it's better than most SL systems and doesn't loosen up. There's no 2010 version of the women's Freedom, but I'm willing to bet that other Northwave boots would be equally awesome.
