Definitely an Upgrade
I just completed a full season wearing the Nike Vapens, and these are definitely the boots that lets you forget about your feet all day long. The comfort and flex afforded to the rider in the design gives movement a soft feel as opposed to the constriction and boxy lack of forgiveness that one can find in other boots. Another thing I like about this boot is the basic lacing system allows you to lace up your boots however you want quickly and easily. Also, it?s pretty hard to break or jam a traditional lacing system. These boots have a pretty skatey feel and broke in almost immediately after coming out of the box.
I would absolutely recommend them on all fronts: performance, comfort, and stye.
