Hybrid Boa Closure System - The Hybrid Boa configuration combines traditional laces with a a Boa closure focused on the critical instep area of the boot. This configuration allows riders to lace their boots tighter than what can be achieved with traditional laces, as well as make on-the-fly adjustments. The Custom Slide Guide enables further customization of the fit and flex of the boot.
Custom Slide Guide - Customizing the fit of your boots has never been easier or more convenient. The Custom Slide Guide’s anatomical shape provides adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and unmatched heel hold.
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.
PleasureCuff™ - Designed to allow for the cuff of the boot to adjust to all range of calf sizes providing a comfortable and forgiving fit.
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.
V3 Ultimate Waffle Outsole - The Ultimate Waffle represents Vans' most progressive thinking in outsole technology. Loaded with features like an aggressive perimeter lug pattern traction and a co-molded asymmetrical ESS arch cradle for enhanced stability and energy transfer, this sole is found only on their top shelf products and offers the widest range of versatility. From stomping a big landing to side-hilling a hike you can count on the Ultimate Waffle.
