Vans Aura for Men?

So finally getting my own gear now that the sales have begun. I'm thinking about getting Vans Aura 10.5. Any thoughts? going to try to find them at the store when I go on Sunday but they have the dual boa which i really want and it's affordable ($170.00 ish)

What's your take on them?
any other boots i should look at?

I ride mostly all mountain if that helps.

I ride the 2010 Vans Aura. They are so comfy and the Dual Boa is amazing. I was having bad circulation problems with my old boots but these solve it. I can wear these for 8 hours a day, they keep my feet dry and warm, and are still comfortable. Make sure you break them in tho.

did you get them heat molded at the store or did you just wear them around to mold the liner?

What do you mean when you say they are bulky? Are they that much bigger than other boots?

The outer shells of Vans boots are generally bulkier than others. For instance, my size 8 Auras just fit the width of my M/L Union Force bindings. With that said, I love the wide toe box Vans offers in their boots.

The Auras are great if you're looking for a light-weight, mid flex, wider boot with the Focus Boa system, and they are a steal at $170. With that said, it's probably a good idea to try them on before purchasing them (as is the case with any snowboard boot).
