Vans Infuse Snowboard Boots

A pair of ill-fitting boots can make the greatest board-and-binding setup just feel wrong. Focus first on the lacing system: make sure the boot hugs your foot in all the right places. If you’re uncomfortable, your day


The key to the Infuse’s secure feel is a three-part closure system that includes traditional laces, a BOA dial, and a removable power strap up top. It was easily the most supportive boot we tested. The only downside: a sturdy leather boot like this takes longer to break in.
