I tried on lots of boots this year (32's, Rides, Celsius, Burtons) and once I stepped foot in these it was a done deal.
Granted everyones foot is different and you really should try on as many boots as possible before buying. But these boots provide me with ZERO heel lift (a 1st for me in my 10yrs riding) and extreme comfort.
The BFB's are constructed very well and are pretty light. If you have the chance to try on any Vans boots dont miss the chance you will be impressed.
