Costa Mesa, CALIF. (September 12, 2018) – In excitement for the upcoming winter season, Vans reinforces its longstanding partnership with global snow team rider Pat Moore to deliver the new Infuse, the world's most customizable snowboard boot. Built like a true ATV, the Infuse provides ultimate comfort for endless, all-terrain riding and is packed with unlimited adaptability, quick micro-adjustability and ample support to match Pat's trailblazing snowboard style.
As Vans' most versatile boot, the Infuse is equipped with the revolutionary Vans Flex Control System including Hybrid Plus Boa with a custom slide-guide that enables optimal closure accuracy and flex variability in a complete all-in-one system. The Hybrid Plus system expands the flex range with an added Boa pass around the back of the boot and across the instep to optimize the lines of pull and maximize flex control capabilities. Vans' pinnacle Infuse boot offers heat-moldable liners with a removable asymmetrical X-cage for maximum heel hold, and V3 UltraCush co-molded cork and recycled EVA footbeds for premium support. Completed with lightweight Ultimate Waffle outsoles for advanced heel dampening, enhanced stability, and optimal traction and control. Updated for the season, the Infuse now features the all-new Vans Heat Retention 360º, a newly improved 360-degree thermal retention layer around the toe box and in between the outsole and liner for all-day warmth. Pat Moore's custom endorsed Infuse delivers progressive, high-performance technologies that present riders with infinite options for on-the-fly adjustability, right at their fingertips.
"There's no such thing as the perfect boot, but Vans will always work on ways to update the Infuse," Moore admits. "With all of the customization options for your individual foot and riding style, I'd say Vans is pretty damn close."
Pat Moore surfaced onto the snowboard street-scene in the early 2000's and was first-recognized for his powerful park riding talent. Soon after, Pat began to transfer his creative urban skillset into influential, big mountain and backcountry riding and is now acclaimed as one of the best well-rounded snowboarders of all time. With the Vans Family since 2012, the New Hampshire native's latest dynamic video part can be seen in Vans' latest full-length snowboard film, LANDLINE.
Pat Moore's third personalized colorway of the Infuse is also featured on a Standard snow boot and an UltraRange Hi Gore-Tex MTE LX, all available now!
