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.

Mila DeGregorio tested this product
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

Nico rocked!
5 /5
Nico helped me tackle the overwhelming and vast realm of purchasing my first ski setup. He was super knowledgeable and took the time to learn about me. The gear he picked out for me really catered towards what I told him I liked to do on the mountain as well as my budget restrictions. All in all great experience and really helped me get over the hump of investing in my own gear!

5 /5
I finished a season snowboarding in Snoqualmie Pass and Sarah was great at offering insight about what kinds of gear were best for the terrain I'd see at my typical groomed mountains! She was very responsive to all of my questions and it felt like I was asking a friend for advice rather than a sales pitcher. I feel grateful to have matched with a knowledgeable local and will look to get more recommendations from her. It is my first time buying snowboarding gear and Curated had just what I needed - price match included!

Eric was very responsive & knowledgeable. He suggested ski bindings & skis that I think I am really going to enjoy. He listened to me & answered all my questions & made suggestions according to my ski style, ability & needs. I will deff be a returning customer! Eric knows his stuff & is very personable. Ski equipment is always changing, it can be overwhelming, but Eric guided me in the right direction & I feel confident in my purchase thanks to him! Great job! Thank you!

Chris was incredibly helpful. He considered everything I was looking for and was able to provide me with some great recommendations. He fine-tuned my list after further input from me and I ended up with a pair of skis that are exactly what I'm looking for. Chris is very knowledgeable.

Wasn't planning on making my purchase today but he steered me in the right direction with prompt knowledge and recommendations that took all of my input into account. Not pushy in the slightest.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.
