I did not think i would like these boots once I tried them on i could believe how well they fit. I'm more of a fan of the speedier lacing systems but the comfort and fit is so goods its worth the sacrifice.
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.
shredded with them the same day i bought and had them molded. then i went out and boarded with them and it felt like i had these boots forever! the comfort is absolutely amazing! great boots but definitely try before you buy as sizes run a little small.
Sick boots fits kinda small but sooo comfy... riddin on fluff
Love this boot. They are super comfortable and true to size. I got them for Christmas and they are still looking great. They are very warm too. I would definitely recommend these boots.
Good looking boots with an incredible fit. A recommended buy!
will these 11.5 fit on a horrorscope 155
i got these for xmas and i swear by them. i have never been so comfortable in a boot period. I swore up and down by 32 boots since i have ridden got these from my girlfriend and i almost want to buy another pair for when these pack out. soft responsive and everything you want in a boot. it is a MUST BUY
these boots look sick and are very comfortable. i couldnt have a better boot. they are very nice and look great.
I am an all mountain rider and I love these boots! They are great for hitting up banks or just getting some air. Very warm boot they insulate great and stay warm all day. I would highly recommend these to my friends!
Favorite boots I've ever rode so far, definitely suggest these to everyone
Just used these on the first trip of the year and absolutely loved them, zero complaints. As some others have pointed out they are a little bit soft yet still provide very good response. These would be a great boot if you stick mostly to the park. Being as I don't spend a lot of time in the park I probably should have gotten something a tad more stiff, but oh well.
As for sizing they were true to fit for me. I wear a 9.5 in most Nike SB shoes and a 9 in most "normal" Nike shoes. I tried these on in a 9 and they were just a tad too tight, 9.5 fit perfectly.
The Vapens are extremely comfortable and keep my feet plenty warm. Comfort has not been an issue to this point yet. I tried on a lot of boots in the $150-200ish price range and I doubt you'll find something more comfortable than the Vapen.
Definitely try them on first.
Way way way way too soft, even compared to my 4 year old (250 days) SLXs.
When I wore them, I felt like I would break bones in my foot if I ever slipped while I was on my toe edge. The tongue provides no forward resistance, so your ankle can compress wayyyyy too far.
They are so comfortable and they don't feel awkward whatsoever. In the picture I thought they were a coral which is why I ordered them, but when they came in they were a super BRIGHT red which I didn't have a problem with. I do not recommend buying the boots without trying them on. Boot sizes are very different based on the brand.
I am a size 8 1/2 in women's so would I need a 6 1/2 to get these since they are a men shoe? Also is the outside more red or pinkish in some areas because the photo is deceiving .
Anyone know how these guys compare to last year's Vapen? I tried out some, but they were softer than i like. I currently got last year's Zoom Force 1s, and they are damn near as stiff as new, too stiff for my liking. Have the Vapens stiffened up at all?
they are a little stiffer not to stiff i bounced around from these and the zoom force =. i like how the zoom force hold in your heals more for aggresive riding. for all around fun i love my Vapens
Great boots so comfy true to size i wear 12 in globes and i ordered a 12 and its perfect HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Do not buy these boots online unless you have tried them on before. I own last years models, I am a 10 in all shoes sizes, and the tens were too small, I sent them back and ordered 10.5s which fit like 11s they are incredibly comfortable even though they are too big, so I imagine if the fit is right they would be even better. My toes just get kind of cold because of the extra room, but I would still recommend the boots, just try them on in a shop first if you can because they do not fit true to size
