From what I've read they seem like great boots for the price and I like that they have a heat-moldable liner.
good choice...super comfy boots. better than most burtons, 32, and dc boots i've tried.

jgsqueak Get properly fit. Get measured weighted and unweighted. That will show you how much your foot pronates or expands. Get in soles like Superfeet to support the arch and secure the foot. Then you will know what size boot you will be in. Going straight off of your shoe size is a pretty bad idea (shoes are cut heel to ball and boots are based off a total length last).

Also hi-standards are really soft for snowboard boots. I think there like a 2/10 on vans scale and vans boots seem to be softer overall than other boot companies.
strange...i've worn a size 9 shoe for a long time. i own a pair of size 9 wiigs and tried on the hi standards in 9 at the store and that would've been good for me as well. the vans in general fit a normal and narrow size foot. if you have a wider than normal foot than that might be the reason some people are sizing up. if this is the case, the vans might not be the best boot for you.

they fit pretty true to size...i wear a 9 shoe everyday and tried on a 9 at the store. when buying boots, you want your toe to be pretty close to the edge so when they mold to your foot and pack out, they should be good to go.
