Purchased these boots for the 2012-13 season. Like all Vans, they're extremely comfortable. I'd size up about a half size. The hybrid lace/boa system is fantastic - it really sinks your heel down into the heelcup and prevents heel lift, and is great for those of us old schoolers who love a traditional lace boot!
