The Vans Hi-Country & Hell-Bound Snowboard Boots will help you charge on the mountain, no matter where you're headed. If you rip super hard and need a high-level boot to do it in, but you like the feel of traditional lacing, this one is for you. The lace-up system is reinforced with a Powercuff strap for a bit of added rigidity, and the Flex Control system allows you to change up the boot from a flowy park slasher one day to a backcountry beast the next. Waterproof vents and a moisture-wicking FlashDry liner from The North Face make these boots cool and breathable for long sweaty ascents, and a zipper shroud keeps them dry on the way down. These kicks can really do it all.
Flex Rating – 5 - 9/ Instep Flex Zone – The Instep Flex Zone functions to maintain natural ankle flexion in your boot, whether in or out of your bindings.
Vans Flex Control System – Removable high-rebound Hytrel® tongue stiffeners allow riders to custom-tune their flex. Slide them both in for maximum support, use just one to provide either increased lateral or medial response or leave them out for a softer-flexing boot. As boots soften up over the course of a season, you can add the tongue stiffeners back in to extend the life of your boots.
Powercuff Strap – Providing extra support at the top of the boot for increased stability and response. Its configuration gives riders customizable levels of engagement and the option of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue.
V3 Ultracush with TNF FlashDry Liner – The most advanced liner ever from Vans, this inner features The North Face's FlashDry fabric, which transfers and eliminates moisture. An UltraCush layer provides all-day comfort with minimal seams, and a neoprene forefoot gives a natural flex. A dual-density heat-moldable core is bolstered by the latest X-Cage--extra security and heel hold that keeps you in contact with your board at all times.
Traditional Laces – Reliable and customizable flex patterns make this traditional feature one that will always be on the market.
V3 POPCUSH Footbed – A triple density footbed that combines impact cushioning with energy transfer, the V3 POPCUSH fights fatigue with anatomical shaping, arch support, a moisture-wicking topsheet and OrthoLite® open-cell top foam.
V3 UltimateWaffle – UltraCush midsole construction for lightweight performance and advanced dampening. Aggressive perimeter lug pattern for increased traction and optimum snow release. Co-molded asymmetrical ESS arch cradle for additional support and response.
