Boa and Vans, like PB&J. Match made in Heaven, for my feet!
I have had trouble fitting in a lot of SB boots. Im always either swimming in them or cutting off circulation. My last pair of Vans nearly caused me to download on the best day of the year at Alpental because my feet were useless. Too tight in all the wrong places. The Encore BOA boot was the answer for me when others fell short. Too bad I wasted time and money on boots that didn't do the trick. Like the all black design too. Minimalist and sleek. Not for you if you like a really stiff boot though.
