Vans Ferra Pro 2020 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride

The Vans Ferra Pro is a boot that offers up strong heel hold but also excellent adjustability and dependability of traditional lace.  It’s also a very well built boot that lasts a good while.

Days: 30+

Size Tried:  Women’s 7.5

Riders: Steph & Paige

Bindings: Union Milan

Boards: Salomon Wonder, Yes Emoticon, Jones Dream Catcher

Fit/Sizing: Fits true to size, a little snug right out of the box, but they pack out over time.

Comfort: After they break in the Vans Ferra Pro boots are very comfortable. I had to put a heel lift insole in mine to fit my ankle better. But after that it was comfortable even out of the box. The insole seems to slip back from time to time so you feel the seam right under your toes, but this can be fixed by moving the insole forward before putting your foot in.

Turn Initiation: The flex for the Vans Ferra Pro is a 5-7. Turn initiation is pretty quick with still being flexible enough to rid park and do butters.

Shock Absorption: The boots ride pretty smooth while still allowing you to feel the board flex under your feet.

Heel Hold: The ankle harness helps to keep the heel in place and the added focus boa helps add extra hold. I wish the cinch for the inner liner was a little more effective, but it works for the most part.

Adjustability: Great adjustability with the traditional lace, medium adjustability for the inner liner.

Traction:  The Vans Ferra Pro comes with V2 WaffleFlex™ – UltraCush. Gives you a comfortable damp ride on top of great traction.

On & Off Ease: Not as easy as a speed lace or boa set up, but still not too difficult to remove or put on. Takes a little extra time to lace it all up but it stays put once you do.

Overall: The Vans Ferra Pro boots are a great option for someone looking for a more advanced boot with traditional laces. They have a good heel lock, a nice flex that gives you quick response but also butter-ability. There aren’t many intermediate to advanced women’s boots out there that offer traditional laces.

 
Vans Ferra Pro Past Reviews

The Vans Ferra is kind of like the Women’s Version of the Infuse BOA……well kind of. Regardless it’s a boot that offers up strong heel hold but also excellent adjustability and dependability of traditional lace. It’s also a very well built boot.
