The Vans Revere BOA is joining the world of hybrid lacing. It’s a traditional Lace boot with a little something extra around the ankle in the form of a BOA closure. It’s there to reduce heel lift and help those that have trouble getting a snug fit around the ankle. This has that traditional Van’s boot feel. It’s well made, very comfortable and runs a bit on the soft side so after 100 days this boot will be a noodle. The toe is a little stronger than older Van’s boots so it will hold up better to the person who cranks their toe strap down.
