Vans' best-selling snowboard boot of all time, the Hi-Standard OG sets the standard with the perfect balance between classic style and modern performance in an all-mountain / freestyle package that's perfect for beginners and seasoned vets alike.
- Instep Lace Lock Out
- Instep Flex Zone
- V1 Waffle Lug Outsole
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.
PleasureCuff™ - Designed to allow for the cuff of the boot to adjust to all range of calf sizes providing a comfortable and forgiving fit.
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.
Instep Lace Lock Out - Divides the lacing closure into two sections allowing the rider to adjust different zones of the boot to their preferred tension.
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.
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.
I actually had a pair that I used for the past 2 seasons since my previous pair finally broke on me (after 10 years of use!) but they were way too tight (originally went with a half size higher than what I normally would wear in Vans shoes). Although they were a bit too tight for me, I still haven't hit the mountains with a pair of boots that felt so comfortable, responsive and warm! Oh, and they just look so good ;)
Finally bought a pair in the right size (whole size up) and DAMN these are so good! I have no problem wearing them all day for a shred sesh and even afterwards for a few beers with the folks to unwind.
Ordering from Tactics was a breeze! No fuss and the boots came quicker than I could get down the bunny slopes LOL
