Great for beginners, the Encore OG boots have what you need to get started progressing past rental gear. They feature a warm UltraCush liner, a footbed with arch support and a medium-soft flex that is responsive without being overwhelming like some of the stiffer boots. A clever harness works inside your boot to keep everything finely tuned and provides the best fit.

Boa Coiler Closure System - This tongue mounted single reel system utilizes a springloaded lace spool to automatically retract the lace cable slack for quick and efficient closure. Different lace guide radii are used to optimize closure force in specific areas of the boot.
Flex Control System - No longer will you be hindered by one built-in flex rating. Their removable high rebound Hytrel tongue stiffeners allow riders to custom-tune boot flex. Slide them both in for maximum support, use just one to increase either later or medial response, or leave them out entirely for softer flexing boot.
V1 UltraCush™ Liner - Vans' most flexible liner featuring an UltraCush interior cushioning layer, dual-density heat-moldable core, fleece cuffs and a comfort-flex toe box.
V1 POPCUSH™ Footbed - Single-density POPCUSH construction with a 3-D molded anatomical shape, anti-fatigue coring design, airflow perforations, and a Nylex moisture-wicking topsheet.
V1 Harness - Attached to the inside shell of the boot, this is Vans' lightest and most simple harness designed to ensure effective support and heel hold by securing the liner to prevent movement.
Heat Retention 360° - All Vans boots feature a newly improved thermal retention layer that provides a 360° wrap of the toe box and between the outsole and the liner. This essential layer keeps heat in and cold out, ensuring all-day warmth and comfort.
V1 Waffle Lug Outsole - The V1 Waffle Lug outsole pays tribute to the Original Waffle skate outsole giving you that timeless vulcanized look that put Vans on the map. This sole is made from Vans' special recipe rubber compound for traction and features an aggressive reverse waffle lug pattern for all-mountain and street performance.
