Vans Hi-Country & Hell-Bound Men's Snowboard Boots - 2023

 ***NOTE: Because snowboard boots are specialized pieces of equipment that fit differently than regular footwear, we DO NOT recommend buying boots online. Getting fitted for boots and insoles before purchasing is HIGHLY beneficial. Please come see our highly trained staff in store for a boot fit. 

WE DO NOT ACCEPT RETURNS OF ONLINE BOOTS AND/OR INSOLE PURCHASES. 

 

Boardworks Breakdown: 

The Vans Hi-Country & Hell-Bound is a top-tier performance snowboard boot for advanced snowboarders and splitboarders with a narrow profile foot. This boot is medium-stiff making it a supportive boot to ride challenging terrain in an aggressive manner if you are on the lighter side. If you are a larger rider, it is still plenty supportive but with more tweak-ability. We highly recommend taking out the tongue stiffener inserts at first while you break the boot in, and then put them in once that break-in point happens. It will still feel solid as hell, and then you can basically refresh the flex back to stiff again once it gets flexed out.


This boot is as awesome for splitboarding as it is durable and dependable for backcountry AND you can loosen the upper power strap to allow for a longer stride in tour mode. 

With all boots, we recommend getting a proper in-store boot fit and considering an aftermarket insole so the boot best matches the arch of your foot.

TERRAIN

ALL-MOUNTAIN AND BACKCOUNTRY
This boot has been optimized for versatility, from parks and powder to urban environments, and everything in between.

Vans Flex Control System 

Removable high-rebound Hytrel® tongue stiffeners allow riders to custom-tune their flex. Slide them both in for maximum support, use just one to provide either increased lateral or medial response or leave them out for a softer-flexing boot. As boots soften up over the course of a season, you can add the tongue stiffeners back in to extend the life of your boots.

Traditional with 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 the Standard XF a customizable level of engagement.

Anatomical shape provides adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and unrivaled heel hold.



V3 Ultracush with TNF FlashDry Liner 


The most advanced liner ever from Vans, this inner features The North Face's FlashDry fabric, which transfers and eliminates moisture. An UltraCush layer provides all-day comfort with minimal seams, and a neoprene forefoot gives a natural flex. A dual-density heat-moldable core is bolstered by the latest X-Cage--extra security and heel hold that keeps you in contact with your board at all times.

V3 POPCUSH Footbed 

A triple-density footbed that combines impact cushioning with energy transfer, the V3 POPCUSH fights fatigue with anatomical shaping, arch support, a moisture-wicking topsheet, and OrthoLite® open-cell top foam.

Inspired by the extended cross- country and off-road demands of moto enduro racing, the V3 SuperEnduro outsole is designed to offer maximum performance in and out of your bindings. Multi-directional tread design? Surface-level texturing? A TPU toe pick? Check, check, and check. There’s no keeping up with this all-terrain apex predator.
