We brought in the Hi-Standard Linerless DX this year because it makes for a SICK powsurf boot. It is plenty soft to give you good ankle mobility, yet still offers a bit of support. The classic vans snowboard soles provide excellent grip while still offering good board feel for riding bindingless. We typically recommend Vans for folks with a narrow foot profile. But due to the super-soft nature of these boots, they can still work well for wider-footed people. If you want a looser-fitting, more casual fit, you can rock these in your normal shoe size. However, if you want them to offer more performance we recommend sizing them true to size as you would for a traditional snowboard boot. For most people this means sizing down at least a half size from their street-shoe size.
Many of us that work here at Boardworks rock vans as our powsurf boot of choice.
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.
