Decent boots for the price. I picked these up over the Burton Hails as they held my heels in place much more snugly with no heel lift at all. See if you can try them on in a local shop and see how they fit you.

The dual zone speed lacing is awesome and the technology was jacked straight off Burtons boots. I like how you can independently adjust the tightness of the ankle and foot lacing.

i live in KC so theres not alot of shops. Theres a place that carrys burton, solomon, gnu, capita, rome, and maybe a few other brands. But you can figure out the boot brands out of that. The other shop carrys vans and some stuff from above. I would pefer trying on the boot befor buying it so one of thoughs brands would be nice.

If you have a Vans dealer nearby, you should check them out in my opinion. My Vans have lasted for years and I'm not getting new boots this year either.

Can't speak for it. I know Vans makes high quality stuff and I don't think they would put a product out there if it was going to snap apart the first time out. I'd be comfortable buying BOA boots from Vans.

I'd kill an old lady with a stick for a pair of Vans Cirrus boots. Check them out.
