This may be a dumb question, but why the "power strap"?
Why not just a buckle?
Ur right! In the the late 70's and early 80's boots had five buckles, then in the 90's four buckles and velcro strap. now many boot have three or two wide buckles and an extra wide velcro. I think the velco strap is just another form of a buckle. What boot do you own?
