The Vans Aura snowboard boot represents Vans’ long-standing commitment to the Boa lacing system and offers the best-in-class zonal closure system. Vans has relied on the laser-sharp focus of Boa closures longer than anyone out there and brings extensive experience with the technology to the table. With two different lacing zones and added Boa-related features like the Custom Slide Guide, the Aura has evolved into a snowboard boot classic thanks to heritage Vans styling in a boot that has lasted longer than most and will continue to define what a classic Boa boot is supposed to look like.
5 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff) – All-Mountain flex and great balance of both support and playfulness extending it's use to any scenario.
Instep Flex Zones – Maintaining flex not only in your boot but also when your boot is strapped onto a binding describes the main problem that the Instep Flex Zone solves. It's because additional flex cannot be achieved without the act of riding in mind.
Internal Web Harness – Vans sets the standard in every boot with versatile harness options. The Internal Web Harness is where it all begins.
Response Liner – The Response Liner offers a dialed-in fit from the get-go with precision response for any terrain or condition. Add to that the knowledge of Vans footwear development and construction experience and you'll get a liner that you love.
Dri-Lex® Moisture-Wicking Lining – Perspiration is moved away from the foot surface by heat and mass transfer and into the specific Dri-Lex® fabric in the lining. The fabric then works in conjunction with other materials to redistribute moisture to eliminate that heavy, damp feeling. Dri-Lex® dries quickly, allowing fabric to retain its natural softness.
Vans Custom Focus Boa® – The Boa® Custom Focus system consists of two reels that control three zones of closure linked by Vans' patent pending Custom Slide Guide. The result is concentrated closure around the critical instep area for superior heel hold.
Custom Slide Guide – Customizing the fit of your boots has never been easier or more convenient. The Custom Slide Guide's anatomical shape provides adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and heel hold.
V2 Footbed – Vans snowboard boots are grounded by Vans' premium footbeds, developed in-house with precise attention to detail. With uncompromising effectiveness in mechanical support and dampening, the V2 footbed is the foundation for ultimate and seamless riding comfort.
Dual-Density UltraCush™ Lite Construction – With forefoot and heel impact-relief pads.
WaffleFlex™ Outsole – WaffleFlex™ cherry-picks from technologies used on the Reverse Waffle and lighter Vans outsoles. The result is unprecedented calibration between dampening and energy return. Boardfeel, traction, and weight reduction are a given.
UltraCush™ Lite Midsole Construction – For lightweight performance.
Metatarsal Flex Grooves – For increased feel and flex.
Aggressive Perimeter Lug Pattern – For increased traction and optimum snow release.
Heat Retention – To keep the warmth in and the cold out, all Vans boots come equipped with a thermal heat retention layer between the outsole and the liner. This layer reflects cold away from the foot and helps hold heat within the boot, keeping you nice and toasty.
