Vans Aura Double Boa

Just picked these up on the weekend. I'm a new boarder and these boots were the most comfortable. I'm a little worried that after I break them in they might not be snug enough. Probably going to head to the sister store of the shop I bought these at and see what else they might have in a size 12. Just wondering what boarders think of this model and vans in general. Hopefully they work out.

I love mine, they broke in but not so much that they were too big. I wear a size 12 too so I think you should be fine.

I guess I should also mention I am putting these boots in Ride EX 2011 bindings on a ride Yukon wide board.

I've had a pair of Cirros for a season and a half now and love them... mine haven't become too big, and even if they did get bigger, I'd just clickety click them a little more .

I love my auras. For me they are extremely comfortable and work perfect for my riding, plus dual boa is the way to go

Does anyone know the flex rating for these. I have heard 3 and also 6. I wouldn't be unhappy with six but since I plan on doing a lot of all mountain, I think 3 would be to much flex. I also want them to last 2-3 seasons. Should I exchange for something stiffer or are these still good for mostly downhill and not much park. Thanks again
