Vans Womens Encore 2016 - 2010 Review by The Good Ride

The Vans Encore is very comfortable for a BOA and almost no pressure points.  We don’t know why the higher end BOA boots have a different harnessing system for the BOA Coil that you cant crank down as tight as this one but we love the Encore’s ability to crank without pressure.  The other ones when cranked down dig through the padding and cause pressure points.  The biggest issue is the 2011 and below have a very soft toe that collapses and makes you crank your binding down more.  The 2012 has changed this a bit and the toe portion of the boot is a little stiffer than before making the 2012 boot a good call. So is the 2013. It also seems a little stiffer than last years boot. The Encore is a soft comfortable BOA boot that might work for some riders.
