    Some women prefer the finer things in life, and the Vans Veil Boa Focus boots are one of those things! These versatile boots offer a combination of custom fit options and tunable flex capabilites.

    • Vans Boa® Focus lacing system personalizes the fit by allowing specific tightening across 3 separate zones: the upper, forefront and instep regions
    • Boa lacing offers on-the-fly micro adjustments and never comes untied; you get quick on and off, and consistent closure without pressure points
    • Instep components are eliminated to allow for the addition of asymmetric articulation which adds flex to the medial side while maintaining lateral support and response
    • Personalize your boot flex with removable tongue stiffeners; use both for maximum support, use just one to increase either lateral or medial response, or remove them entirely
    • Over the course of a season as your boots soften up or you decide you want to alter your comfort or support, add or change the tongue stiffeners around to inject new life
    • Flexible cuffs provide comfortable and secure closure around ankles and lower legs, and enhance body-to-board responsiveness
    • Quadfit Custom X thermal-formable liners have an exterior overlay support cage; it provides leg and ankle support for an anatomic and supportive fit
    • Liners also feature open-cell foam interiors with Outlast® footbed lining, nonslip heel pockets, thickly padded cuffs and seamless toe boxes
    • Direct-connect rip-and-stick closures and cuffs straps prevent liner movement
    • Molded cork/recycled EVA support-cage footbeds feature integrated arch support, anatomically placed metatarsal and heel impact-relief pads and antimicrobial linings
    • Skate-influenced, low-profile outsoles offer lightweight performance; aggressive tacky rubber perimeter lugs provide high traction in wet and slippery slop
    • Internal power plates increase turning response; impact-absorbing heel cassettes damp vibrations
    • Each Veil boot has 2 RECCO® reflectors that enhance radio signals from search-and-rescue RECCO detectors for quicker location in an avalanche

    Average weight specification is per pair, based on size 7.

    Vans Veil Boa Focus Snowboard Boots - Women's - 2011/2012 is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stiff boot, but that's what I wanted I previously had a pair of Burton Axel boots, which were way too soft and flexible for me. After shopping around, I decided on these Vans. Factoring in the discount because they were from last season, it seemed like a good deal. If you are looking for a stiff boot, these are for you. The tongue and parts of the side (the shiny panels in the picture) are actually hard plastic. I like the stiffness from a boarding perspective - it helps through the turns and I feel "locked in" to the board. They are not nearly as stiff as a ski boot, but they far from strapping in Sorels like the old days. The boa lace system is a big plus. It lets me quickly tighten up the boots even when strapped into the bindings. I always felt like my old boots were too loose and it was a production to tighten them. Sometimes I would just leave my old boots too loose because my friends hated waiting for me. That is never a good idea, and now with a quick crank I feel like I am good to go. Now for the negatives... I do not think these boots were designed specifically for women. The back comes pretty high on your calves (and I do not have large calves). There is also not enough cushioning at the top of the collar so the hard plastic ends up digging into your calf a bit. I actually had some bruising after boarding for a couple days. While the boa lace system is nice for adjusting the outer boot, the liner adjustment does NOT have a boa tightening system. They just have an internal lace with a cheap plastic locking mechanism at the top. This plastic locking mechanism totally stinks -- it is very hard to get the inner liner tight because this plastic piece rarely locks the lace in place. Burton has a similar plastic lock for the liners, but the Burton one is slightly better. I think if I replace this plastic piece with something a bit more reliable, I would be very happy. In my old boots I got tons of heel lift. Much less with these boots. If I can get the liners locked in a bit tighter, I think I could totally eliminate the heel lift. At the end of the day, I am enjoying these boots. I wish they were a little better designed, but so far the best I could find for a stiffer boot.
