I really like my ~2008 32 Lashed but.. something with smaller "uppers"?
I have these boots:
The top of the boots is just rather huge. Not sure what it is called, the upper part where the tongue is does not pack down much. They have traditional lacing system as well with 40 foot long laces designed to wrap around twice.
I would really like to go back to a boa boot. Also I prefer men's boots. I usually have trouble finding women's boots in size 10 or 11.
