Does Vans have footprint reduction?

Does anyone know how well the instep boa holds down the heel compared to K2 condo system?
Luke put them on and said, and I quote, "Holy Shit".

i have a pair of this years Vans Revere boots that im selling now actually..theyre AMAZING boots, ive never felt the kind of support and comfort in any other boot, but sadly theyre just slightly too narrow on the arch for my unbelievably wide feet. bummer too, i have a pair of the limited edition ones for the team riders..only 165 pairs made.

What up Wired! Been a while.

Wish I had seen your post before I put mine up, I had a question:

So my boa system on my K2 Maysis broke so obviously I need a new pair. Vans Infuse caught my eye. Only problem is I saw their flex was pretty low, and I remember reading Jed's article:

"Personally I find really soft boots to be junk because they break down too fast. Too soft doesn’t give you support and you have to replace them earlier because they’ll turn to mush quickly, but I guess if some people like super soft boots and don’t mind having to replace them quicker then that’s their choice.

Stiff boots all get more and more flexible as they wear down, so a stiff boot can actually end up with the same stiffness as a soft boot if you use them long enough. Personally I tend to stick to mid stiff and up when it comes to buying boots, but that’s my preference."

I don't have the funds to constantly replace my boots. Anyone have any remarks regarding this to help with my worry about my boots breaking down, or any experience with the Vans Infuse life quality?
