I wouldnot buy Vans boot
I bought the Vans Encore Snowboard boot 2009 and they were bad. They got leaked and my feet are wet and freezing all the time. I am not sure if I will ever buy Vans boot again.
Just not comfy
I'm not sure if it's just the "new boot" syndrome where you have to break in the boot, or if you have to get the "foot molder" for these boots for the extra $100 but they are not comfortable. My first ride with them, and the top of my foot (right at the ankle) had WAY too much pressure on it. It started aching after the first hour. I had to loosen the boots to the point that the pressure was gone and I could feel the circulation around my pinky toes, but that meant that the area around my leg was loose and my bindings were the only thing keeping my foot on the board. Boa's are a GREAT idea, and myabe its just my feet, but I didn't have a good experience with them.
I talked to one of my friends that I know had Boas and he said that he had the same problem with the pressure on the top of the foot. He kept his boots for an entire season thinking that he just had to "berak them in" but this season you better believe that he's getting a different pair of boots because the "breaking-in" never happened.
So just a heads up, your boots can make ALL the difference so when you try these babies on try getting a size up, or make sure they fit you JUST right.
wow!!! women's snowboard boots come in loud colors? that's so rad! i got these last year and the boa was sooooo nice. i'm only sad because i got so picky i had to graduate to a double boa. maybe there's a vans double boa version. i'm so confused because vans is a skate company, but none of the other boots with lace ups could handle my weird legs. i guess these took it like a man.
if you're a chick shopping you have to be really really really really really aware and not let people talk you into getting boots that are too comfortable or where you don't feel a little pain. otherwise if you get boots that don't hold up you'll just be one of those lame women trailing the crew and saying lame stuff like "that girl's a 5 out of a 10" and doing half-assed write-ups in scenester magazines instead of going all out and making a pile of dough to pay for your snowboarder boyfriend's artificial knees.
great stuff here!
