I've ridden the Cirro for the last 4 years. When they brought out the double BOA 3 years ago it improved it drastically.
This is the stiffest softboot I can find. Comforatable.....a week to pack out the toes, and they hold their stiffness for about 40 days of hard riding. I've tried the Malamutes form Salomon and DriverX's from Burton but the BOA means you can really keep em stiff. I where them tight, ream them extra tight for when I'm strapped in and then just pop the knob when I get to a chair or change to touring mode. When you tighten them the tongue is just BOA cable and 3 stiff plastic pieces.....far stiffer than laces.
They are far from perfect though......the lace on the upper BOA may be longer than it needs to be and if you ream them extra tight the BOA may get stuck, or in my most recent case, tighten the coiler so much lace that it popped the housing right off.
I'm sending this pair back, getting another, and replacing the BOA laces with a smaller length one I have on warranty from BOA. For the average user I don't think this will be a problem but be aware.. I love them I just wish the BOA was more dureable
There can't be a better Snowboard boot.
After boarding for 10 years, I discovered the Vans with two Boa's. I loved that boot, whatever it was called. Just upgraded to the Cirro, boots amazing. All the little things missing in the inner boot has been added, gadget to keep heal in, strap at the top, and an improved lace system. This boot is very firm, but gives you infinite flexibility with the two boa cranks. You can find the perfect comfort. My old boots, were getting soft, so I had to break in the new ones. You can not tighten the boa's to get a firm but really comfortable feel. When you are shredding the slopes, tighten them up for incredible responsiveness. The range of this boot is incredible. You will not be disappointed, doubt it can be improved upon. I am an experienced boarder with a wide foot. The only complaint is that the boot has a loop at the top to help grab the boot that interferes with high back bindings. I almost cut it off, but it just crunched up. Great boot, you will love it.
Great Boots (but not perfect)
I am a freeride snowboarder and after a season of riding in Burton Ions which are one of the stiffest boots I have ever worn, I got these.
These fit me better than the Ions on the first try. Weirdest thing was the Ions I have are a size 8.5 and these are a size 9. I get slight heel lift in the Ion and none in these. I like the Boa better than the Freezone lace system.
1) Vans so called Cork insoles just like any other default insoles suck. It's not a full cork insole. I put Superfeet in them.
2) The huge Strap on the back on the boot. It really interferes with getting the boot strapped in.
I ride a Burton T6 with C60s and I also rode these on a Burton Custom with Custom Bindings and Rossignol One-Mag with Cuda V1 bindings.
DIdn't matter though. Overall, great fit, very comfy on my flat feet with the Superfeet and VERY responsive. My feet weren't tired at the end of the day like they were with the Ions.
What happened to the black boots?

Sold out. Sorry.
Stiff Freeride boot
I tested these last and they are VERY stiff. They took about 20 days to break and I put about 80 days on them total. Never had a problem w/boa but I could never quite get the fit completely dialed in. I'm more of a speedzone/traditional lace guy and I felt the boa wires didn't have the feel and flex I'm accustomed to. Def a good boot if you're looking for a stiff, techie, freeride boot. I ride Rome Targa bindings and I never had any problem w/boot height. The Targa/Cirro combo is one responsive set up!
Interference With Burton C60 Bindings
Vans didn't get the strap on the back of the boot high enough for the Burton (2009) C60 bindings, so when the boot is in the binding, it holds the boot off of the hi-back plate 1/4 of an inch. It should be above the hi-back. This strap is only used to help get the boot on but it's WAY overkill. Vans should have considered all of the binding hi-back heights. This is an excellent boot except for this interference.
Just got the boots and they're amazing, I live in Keystone, Colorado and AVERAGE AT LEAST 100 days a year. The first day the boots seemed a bit tight but the boot loosened up and packed out just a little bit and they became very comfortable (I wear size 11.5 shoes mostly, SOMETIMES larger if i need them wider, I got the same for snowboard boots).I have a wide foot and the Vans have always seemed to be perfect to accomodate this and pac out well where foot is the widest and the toes are as well, and they are still able to keep my foot secure and comfortable. I actually hated snowboard boots when I first started because of how tight I would have to make the boot to secure a comfortable stiffness in them as I am a pretty big rider at over 200+lbs. I had previous Vans with the BOA system and these are even stiffer (which I like) and much lighter. I have had two previous pairs of Vans boots with the BOA lacing system (both Vans Contras), but both were only single BOA lacing systems and the Dual BOA's are much better. I am now able to leave the lower part of the boot a bit looser for comfort for my feet and a bit tighter up top for rippin down the mountain. Compared to my previous Van's boots pretty much everything has been improved on the boot except the rubber tread on the bottom which is the same as the pair I had from 3 years ago, but "if it aint broke dont fix it" i guess.... just wish it had a little more cushion for my big stompers, but its the only downside I see beside the $300+ price. 5/5 for the boot 4/5 for price (but the POW idea is cool, go winter!). Bottom line, I would buy the boot again. Hope this helps everybody else.
