Key Features

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.


V3 UltraCush™ Liner - Features Van's expanded comfort-flex neoprene forefoot, adjustable and/or removable asymmetrical X-cage for a micro-adjustable fit and excellent heel hold, UltraCush interior cushioning layer, dual-density, heat-moldable core, an exterior support cage, a soft microsuede cuff/tongue, and a comfort-flex toe box.

V3 POPCUSH™ Footbed - Tri-density POPCUSH construction with an OrthoLite® open-cell foam top layer, TPU arch support heel clip, a 3-D molded anatomical shape, anti-fatigue coring design, airflow perforations, and a Nylex moisture-wicking topsheet.

V3 Harness - This advanced support harness delivers Vans' highest level of support to the ankle and instep, keeping the V3 liner and boot shell locked in and connected.

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.

FlashDry™ - Fabric engineered to act like a second skin, pushing moisture to the surface and eliminating it as fast as possible.


PowerCuff Strap - Power is the operative word with the PowerCuff Strap. It provides 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.

Instep Flex Zone - 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 technology solves.


V2 WaffleFlex™ Outsole - The WaffleFlex is a lightweight and flexible outsole that combines Vans' weight-reducing UltraCush midsole material with metatarsal flex grooves designed to improve boardfeel and natural flex.


Waterproof Zipper Shroud + D-Ring - This feature is a durable and weatherproof fabric shield that protects the lower part of your boot from snow, ice, and moisture, ensuring easy access to your Boa closure no matter what the weather throws at you. It also features a metal D-ring for securely fastening your pant gaiters to lock out snow.
