An aura of versatility.
The Vans Men's Aura Boa Snowboard Boot takes being the single most important piece of equipment a rider owns seriously. From turning to boned-out grabs to next-level rail tricks—everything starts at the feet. No matter where or how you like to ride, all-day comfort, ease-of-use, and clean looks never go out of style. Dual Boa reels allow you to independently adjust the tightness of three different zones within the boot, so you can easily dial in the perfect fit every time. Not to mention, a Custom Slide Glide allows you to adjust the fit along the instep for customized comfort and superior heel hold.
Its medium flex is bendy enough for tweaking tricks in the park and supportive enough for shredding steep lines, and full instep articulation allows forward flex without breaking down the shell. The Tri-Fit-X thermal liner is heat-moldable for a custom fit, and it has a fleece-lined cuff and flexible toe box for comfort. A mix of EVA and natural cork in the V-cork footbed provides cushioning where you want it and support where you need it, which ultimately translates into shock absorption and preventing foot fatigue. The Classiclite outsole is made with EVA to reduce weight while improving cushioning, and strategically placed rubber in high-wear areas ensure long-lasting durability and traction.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought these for my husband, and here's what he had to say about 'em:
"I love Vans Aura Boa so much! They break in pretty easily after a good days' ride and the Boa system is smooth like butta. Definitely a great all-mountain boot for whatever riding you like to do with excellent stiffness and response in all the right places! I am a 10 in shoes, and ordered a 10 in these boots, and they fit great for me".
I really wanted to love these boots. Here is what I did like: they look cool. They are pretty comfortable. They are a mid flex boot that has a decent heel cup. Here is why I returned them: the inner boot lacing system is jenky. It was really hard to get them snug and then youâre left tucking in a long pull lace into the tongue. I know this is typical but it bothered me because the locking system may as well not be there. I had purchased these and the Ride Lasso boa, and I kept the Ride Lasso. The fit of the vans was small. I ordered a 1/2 size up.
