Vans... not the automobile

I've gotten the Vans mantra lately, they seem to be holding up good. but not so sure about the long run.
Have any of you used vans boots? Or Vans in general, are they durable? This is my first time on vans, so i'm not sure.

This is beginning of 2nd season in my Mantra's. Out about a 12x this year and more coming.
No packing, no tears or heel wear, laces still strong, lace cleats or hooks all in tack, inner lace no fraying of any kind and they are still warm and comfortable.

I don't have much time in snowboarding but the few times I have worn my Vans Auras they were really comfy and no problem breaking them in. I bought them without knowing what brand they were. They just lined up the 5 or so pairs of size twelves they had and I chose the most comfy. I think that might be a good way to pick boots so no bias on brands is involved. I even remember being a bit disappointed that they weren't Burton or Ride. I did my research on Vans and they seem to make a pretty durable boot. Not many complaints to be found on Vans but I'm sure there are a few. They should be good to you

Thats pretty much how i got my boot. Id rather stay away from Burton, but thats just me. There are plenty of other brands which are equally good quality wise.

Been riding Vans for about 7 years now. 2 pairs of BFB's and now riding the Andreas Wiig II's. Awesome boots. I've never had to replace them because of breaking down, only because I wanted a new pair. A++ for Vans.

Another nod to Vans... my third season using only my Cirros and holding firm... this equates to about 80-100 days so far because I bought them in February of 2009.
