Vans Mantra 2014 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Vans Mantra is a super soft very comfortable beginner boot. We couldn’t get over how comfortable this boot is for the price.  It almost feels more like an ugg boot than a snowboard boot.  If it had a little more stiffness this could be a good beginner boot. The biggest issue is the very soft toe that lives in the pre over the toe era of 2003.  if you ride with over the toe straps because the boot just collapses, makes you crank it down more and cause pressure on your toes. All in all this boot could be a great choice if they stiffened the toe and gave the toe some reinforcement because for a beginner it’s more about comfort than performance.
