Vans Implant 2017 - 2016 Review by The Good Ride

The Vans Implant is comfortable day one kind of boot that also offers up some pretty good adjustability with traditional lace as well as a power strap, and really strong heel hold because they have a BOA specifically for heel hold. Also, it’s pretty good with long term reliability and Peter was right.
