Want. Love the concept of adjustable stiffness for different boards + conditions, etc.

Does anyone know the fit + footprint compared to Burton? Last I remember from many years ago Vans had big soles, basically no footprint shink tech, and fit small / tight. I am comfortable in SLX + Photon 9.5 but Tourist 9.5 is definitely less comfortable, while still OK. 

Trying to figure out if I should get the Baldface in 9.5?

the Baldface boot is the same as the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound aka Staxwood from this season, which you can read several good reviews on over in the Boots Thread

on my foot, they fit similarly to SLX (pretty solid overall but a touch narrow in the toe box. I’d stick with the same size as you would SLX.

Awesome - thanks @coleslawed!

Anyone know if Vans have a proform? - can't find application online. 

Note to Admin: sorry, I looked for Vans thread and didn't find, but maybe someone can move this to Boots Thread?

I have a sample pair of next year’s infuse, I already like them way more than my taxwoods without being on snow yet. Smaller footprint and MUCH better heel hold than the taxwood. The taxwood has one less row of lace rungs which I didn’t love.

@notmikebuckley thanks for the intel! I do want better heel hold so the Infuse makes more sense then
