These Vans boa boots are amazing! They keep me warm and have a nice medium flex. The boa lacing system makes it quick and easy to put them on and the same taking them off. Perfect for all riders. I typically don't like Vans because they seem like they fall apart too easy so I was a little sketchy buying these but i'm glad I did. They are nice and tough. Ive worn them over 2 seasons at least 40 times and they are in good condition. I'm going to get at least 1 more season out of them.
