Nike Vapen Boots

Hi just wondering if anyone has any hands on time, or maybe I should say feets on time with Nike Vapen boots? Found a good deal on a pair and was thinking of trying them out. Any info would be appreciated

Hey, I picked some up at the beginning of last year and I personally really like them, they give a good feel and are pretty comfy. No complaints from me. And they do look amazing! Hope this helps.

I've got a pair and love 'em and I think most that have wore Nike would say the same. If it's a good deal, I'd buy them. Do you prefer traditional lace over BOA? Nike is about to drop some single and double BOA boots this fall/winter and I'm definitely getting a pair to try out. Vapen BOAs at that...

My buddy loves his for true all mountain use and has never complained about anything with responsiveness despite the softer flex rating nor weight despite being their entry level boot. Keep in mind it is for narrow feet though.

Do you have any ski/snowboard shops near you? They possibly have last year models for a good price. If not there are some good deals online.

There is one local shop that has 3 stores but they don't carry Nike. It's kind of annoying. For a top 10 city population wise, our snowsports selection is so so.

Have you tried on a Nike snowboard boot? I have the Zoom Ites and I'm about to order the 14 Vapens. I think they are for normal to narrow feet. Is you're foot wide?
