Hey no worries. I will bring up the color options for the higher end boots.

I am not one of them but to each is own.

Doubt I will ever find a better stiff women's boot.
Keep an eye out for 15-16!! we are working on a boot much like the Ferra.. with lace/boa/power strap w slide guide.

Hey.. yeah the 14-15 infuse does have some differences in 13-14. The main differences are the new no sew eyestays. We used les leather on the sides to reduce pack out. The laces are of much better quality as well. We have also added the custom slide guide for comfort and adjustability with the boa system. I have been riding these this season and so far they are great. 22+ days so far. The new Cirro is nice as well! Dropped the Matlock model and added a few other lower priced models. Heres a link to the catalog.

For me they fill different when inserted.

Anyway, where do you live? Maybe I can get someone to help you out from the product team in Cypress, Ca.


Appreciate the help, but it's a bit too late to bother now. I'm on the east coast. I already tried contacting vans and they just wanted me to send the whole boot in instead of replacement parts, which is a no go.

I can tell you a few things about them.

Liners suck. The stitching was done by blind 12 yearolds. They ripped apart in fourteen days. The tongues ripped off. Vans customer service SUCKS. Refuse to give me any compensation or replacement parts. I can't go without boots.

I noticed no difference with the stiffness inserts.

The boa ankle strap is great, right? No. It pulls the tongue down into your instep and brutalizes your foot.

Laces are quick to fray.

The liners packed out at least two full sizes. They would probably continue to keep packing out. Unless you have huge calves/shins, this is going to create lots of excess space quickly.

The Velcro strap is great if you put a different liner.

Great width, only boots I found that can accommodate my toe box.

Low profile shell, unless you have over a size twelve boot, stick with medium bindings. As for the guy asking about them with cartels, they have a bit of sloppyness side to side in my large cartels.

The grip pattern on the sole actually makes a difference, they give the best grip on ice out of any boot I have ever owned.

Very cushioned ride without sacrificing response. Dampening is great for flat landings.




Overall, I have a love/hate relationship with them.
