The Vans Aura OG boot is an all-mountain boot that is simple and lightweight. It also provides the type of performance that an intermediate-level rider needs out of an all-mountain boot. The soft flex of the boot creates a more forgiving feel for the rider and the emphasis on comfort means that there should be no problem lapping runs all day with these boots.

Key Features:

  • Vans BOA Coiler – This boot comes with the BOA lacing system, allowing the rider to lace up easily and dial in the perfect feel. It comes equipped with cable guides to direct force to the right areas which allow the rider to feel secure.
  • V1 Popcush Footbed – The cushioned footbed provides excellent comfort and dampening.
  • V1 Waffle Lug Outsole – This boot comes equipped with the classic Vans skate-style outsole to provide great style and grip.

This boot is a great option for the rider who is just getting into snowboarding or is looking for a softer flexing boot that really values comfort. It's a great option that won't break the bank but will allow the rider to feel comfortable and confident all day on the mountain not worrying about foot pains or fatigue. The boa... Read more
Ideal for
  • The boot is best for beginner riders or those riders looking for a soft flexing boot.
  • The boot is a great option for a rider getting into snowboarding looking for a super comfortable boot.
  • Best for the riders who need a easy to use boot that can keep them comfortable and confident on the mountain.
Not ideal for
  • Soft flexing boot with minimal response compared to other boots.
  • This is more of a beginner boot so it may not hold up as well for more intermediate to advanced riders.
  • This is a boa speed lacing boot so if another style is preferred then there are other options for that.

I was able to try these boots this past year, and they are immediately comfortable right out of the box. My best friend has these boots, and he absolutely loves them. They are super soft and decently light for a Van's boot. Great tread on the outsole which is very nice for walking on snow/ice and gripping on your board.
Ideal for
  • Soft, immediately comfortable boot
  • Strong grip on the outsole
  • Very beginner friendly, budget friendly boot
Not ideal for
  • Not responsive enough for a harder rider
  • Not great heel hold, due to the soft liner

So Helpful!
5 /5
I've been out of the ski market for so long that I had no idea there were so many subtle, but very distinct differences in equipment. Thomas almost instantly responded any time I had a question or wanted a clarification. Decision paralysis or confusion would surely have taken over if not for Thomas's help. Thank you!

Austin was amazing as always
5 /5
It's my 2nd time working with Austin - originally he had picked a snowboard out for my son that has worked out super well. Now he helped me pick out a new board for myself after using the same second hand ill-fitted one I had for 10 years. Austin was super responsive throughout the whole process, super enthusiastic, and had a lot of knowledge to share with regards to his suggestions. I could tell that all of his picks for me were well thought out and has made me super excited about trying out the Solomon Assassin I ended up purchasing.

Mariah is amazing!
5 /5
Coming into this, I do not have a lot of knowledge on skiing equipment and neither do my family or friends. Mariah helped me by being super knowledgeable, answering all of my questions, and addressing all of my concerns. She is very quick with her responses and will provide you with an array of options that are tailored to your preferences. I appreciate that she took time to discuss the details with me. I would highly recommend her services to my family, friends, and anyone looking to buy ski equipment! She is the best! :)

Jed was awesome! He's not only super nice and kind but also incredibly responsive. Whenever I have a question or need help, he's there with his wealth of knowledge. It's like having a reliable friend who's always got your back. Jed is the real deal when it comes to being helpful and knowledgeable.

Riley provided expert input on my purchase. I am always very busy so online shopping is easiest, however, it can be tough when I'm a little out of my wheelhouse and need insight on what is best to lower the likelihood of a return. I have not bought skis in many years and am just getting back onto it, so it was helpful to have support making choices. They also made a couple add-on and changes based on my questions and needs. Much appreciated!
