Like your favorite pair of Samba shoes, these Samba ADV Snowboard Boots are the perfect blend of functionality, with durability. These medium-flex boots have a Continental® rubber outsole and Silver Level Ultralon heat-moldable foam liner, for lightweight, and lasting, performance. Adidas provides a locked-in fit with an inner ankle harness, articulating cuff shell, rubber backstay, and 3D molded tongue, so you can embrace more of the mountain in all-terrain.
- Continental® Rubber Outsole
- Silver Level Ultralon Heat-Moldable Foam Liner
- 3D Molded Tongue
- Articulated Cuff
- Rubber Backstay
- Inner Ankle Harness
- 1:1 Boot Fit
Continental® Rubber Outsole - Wet/dry rubber compound for optimal grip in all conditions. Strategically placed for outsole durability without compromising weight. Micro grooved traction enhancement.
Silver Level Ultralon Heat-Moldable Foam Liner - Ultralon's fine and consistent cell structure offers superior performance when thermo-forming and will not pack-out after repeated use.
3D Molded Tongue - The 3D Formed Tongue is built to enhance fit and add support, keeping you from experiencing annoying slippage and loose ankles.
Articulated Cuff - The articulating cuff shell features separate upper and lower zones that flex easily together instead of bowing out, delivering a softer but more supporting flex and a better more constant fit.
Rubber Backstay - Helps prevent slippage between boot and binding highbacks.
Inner Ankle Harness - Secure your foot inside the liner and shell for a no-slip fit.
1:1 Boot Fit - 1:1 Boot Lasting secures a better fit and heel hold by following the natural contours of the foot. If you wear a 10, you're going to want to buy a 10, it's as simple as that, these boots fit how you want boots to fit.
Okay now that that is out of the way I can talk about the boot itself. It's an excellent boot, not too stiff but not too hard also. I am an all mountain rider from the woods to the park and this boot feels like it will do a great job with what ever you throw at it. The power lace system works great over traditional lacing and is a good alternative to the ugly BOA lace system. The articulating cuff helps keep the boot shells natural shape and rigidity even when fully flexed. The liner also feels very comfortable after molding to my foot. The only thing I can really complain about is the fact that Adidas didn't offer this color way in the Tactical ADV boot with their Boost Tech without a BOA lacing system (I don't like the BOA system if you couldn't tell, but I'm old school) Hope any of this helps!
