Step in the Vans Kira Boot and dance around on the snow.

So does it come with something to tighten the coiler thing?I'm pretty much just wondering how it works, I have crazy-weak hands and need my boots super-tight...
You pop out the wheel at the top and then spin it until it starts wrapping up the extra cable. At that point keep turning it and you'll feel the boot snug up. It's very easy to turn. Don't worry. Once it's tight enough, you push the wheel in and it locks it. Makes it easy to get them very tight.
Pretty nice boot
Love the boa system and the boot is pretty comfy and rides well. My only complaint is that at the end of the day, the tops of my feet feel bruised under where one of the plastic cable holders things lies. (But I have really high arches so this might not be a problem for other people.)
PS. Size 9.5 barely (and I mean BARELY) fits into the Ride LXh Med bindings. (But I think that is a problem with the LXh sizing because my old boots won't fit in the LXh bindings at all...)
Bought these for my gf.
Awesome fit & finish, looks similar to classic Pumas/Vans with pants over the top. The Boa Coiler works really well, for a tighter foot adjustment, just lean a bit forward while cranking them on. The texture and graphics on the sides of the boot look like custom stitching and are really unique.
The ankle of the boot is super fat. The
boots don't fit into any of her bindings, so now I have to find new bindings for her.....Grrrr
