Vans Kira 2013 - 2010 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 it’s adjustable 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 Kira seems to fix that problem but the lower ends a little higher than the upper.  Van’s are known for their very soft toe.  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 pressure on your toes. We like the addition of a strap on the top because it adds to adjustability.  It’s a shame to see a boot that is so comfortable miss on the reinforcement over the toe because this could be a very recommendable boot for someone looking for a soft freestyle boot.
