Anyone else considering them?
Honestly I like the ONE.9 better. I'm not a fan of the tongue on the NXG, or even Total One. But that could be because I'm an ol'school kinda of guy and like a traditional felt tongue. I wear my tongue on the outside and like it to have a little bit of flop and the NXG is a shaped/form fitting type tongue (with that adj. lace bite bar) which I've always hated. There really isn't a huge difference between the ONE.9 and the NXG's (Boot physical construction is the same) and for the extra $150 its just not worth it. Plus the lining on the NXG while comfortable looking, it doesn't look to be as durable as the ONE.9.

Just my 2cents.
