No, Vans are only "average" width in the heel (not wide... but not really narrow either). I also try a lot of boots/brands each year. A couple of shops guys keep recommending Vans to me as being narrow... but I never found the Vans to be that good. Either none of them actually have narrow feet, or they just aren't aware of Nitro boots (or both).
