It's time to check out tomorrow's gear today with Snowboarders 2020 Vision New Product Preview. Snowboarder has worked with key snowboarding manufacturers to highlight some of the must see boots, bindings, boards, outerwear, goggles and accessories arriving in stores next fall.
Vans doesn’t just walk the walk, they have the gear and the team to improve the walk a hundredfold. Check out the latest offerings from the storied company below.
Hi-Standard OG (Jake Kuzyk)
Not many can do it like Jake Kuzyk, and with that said, there aren't many boots on the market like the Hi-Standard OG Jake Kuzyk. Much like his riding, Kuzyk's boot has a classic, timeless style with a unique originality to it, but furthermore, like Jake, this boot is insanely technical where it needs to be. With features like Vans' new V1 UltraCush® liner, V1 POPCUSH™ footbed and V1 Waffle Lug outsole it's ridiculously comfortable while enhancing your boardfeel while riding and it comes in a variety of colorways for you to choose from so you can be sure that it'll match your kit from head to toe.
Ferra Pro (Mary Rand)
Mary Rand knows damn well how to snowboard, and Vans knows damn well how to develop a snowboard boot that'll not only suit her riding style, but everyone else who slips this on as well. Some of the key ingredients of this boot are V2 Ultracush with a Smartwool liner inside to keep your feet warm and comfortable in any riding conditions and on the outside, the Ferra Pro Mary Rand comes with a Vans Hybrid BOA lacing system with custom Slide Guide technology, making them not only easy to get in and out of, but fully customizable when it comes to tightness or looseness of the boot. Cap it off with Vans' infamous waffle sole on the bottom for grip and Mary's custom colorway (also available in the Mid-Slip MTE and an Old Skool™ style) you have one of the best boots that money can buy.
Verse (Bryan Iguchi)
Bryan Iguchi has spent his entire snowboard career breaking trail and paving new paths, and when he does it, the Verse Bryan Iguchi is on his feet. This boot is built to perform in the harshest backcountry environments, which is where Guch lives in the winter. Featuring Vans' proprietary V3 UltraCush® TNF FlashDry™ liner, V3 POPCUSH™ footbed, waterproof zip shroud, and a V3 UltimateWaffle outsole, the Verse is the winter Swiss Army knife of boots when it comes to comfort, durability and support. Also of note is that Guch's custom colorway is also available in Vans' Ultrarange™ Hi Gore-Tex MTE.
Infuse (Pat Moore)
The everyday winter go to. The tried and true. The Infuse is the flagship boot used by the one-and-only Pat Moore. It keeps the classic look but performs like the most tech boot on the market… and that might just be the case. Complete with V3 UltraCush® TNF Flashdry™ liner, V3 POPCUSH™ footbed, Hybrid Plus Boa® Closure System, and a V3 UltimateWaffle outsole, you can feel comfortable stepping out your door as well as stepping up to any feature on your hill.
