Vans Matlock 2014 - 2011 Review by The Good Ride

This is a different type of boot than most with a side BOA and then a strap on the top.  It’s strange but at least its adjustible at each end. This is a good idea because Focus BOA boots have one big problem. The upper and lower still tighten around the ankle so it’s hard to really get a form fitting adjustment.  The adition of a strap combined with a BOA bottom seems to fix that problem.  Van’s are known for their very soft toe that lives in 2003.  This can really suck if you ride with over the toe straps because the boot just collapses, makes you crank it down more and cause presure on your toes. For 2012 the Matlock toe was reinforced to be as good or better than most boots and it will hold up well to a modern toe strap.  Van’s also rates this as a 4 out of 10 in stiffness so that would be a soft rating to us.  When flexing this boot it feels stiff so we’ll call it medium because Van’s boots do soften up pretty quick.
