The Orvis Pivot was designed to improve traction, comfort, and durability. Exceptionally durable and lightweight, the reel combined with aircraft grade stainless steel laces provides smooth, even closure for a secure, comfortable, and truly customized fit. Just turn the dial, take a few steps and make the final adjustment. To remove the boot, simply pull the dial out until it clicks and then pull the tongue out and away. Screw in studs are optional if an added level of traction is desired. Imported.
