The bangin' lacing system of the ECCO Biom G5

Gear pundits are quite impressed with the BOA closure of this athletic golf shoe. One of them says that it delivers "really precise adjustability." Another one says that this "BOA system offers convenience."

That said, there are those who would rather have its knob located somewhere else. According to a professional reviewer, the knob being placed on the outer side looks a bit off.
