The Vans X Baldface LTD is a top-tier performance snowboard boot for advanced snowboarders and splitboarders. This is the boot that none of our staff can afford, but we all wish we could have. If the Infuse and the Verse had a baby, and that baby was super limited with a dope Baldface selected colorway… this would be it. This boot is MEGA STIFF. 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’ll still fell solid as hell, and then you can basically refresh the flex back to stiff again once it gets flexed out. YOU WANT THIS BOOT. WE want this boot. We were only able to get 2 or 3 of these in total so it’ll likely be sold out in no time. Buy them. Sell them on eBay for a profit for all we care. This is the sickest boot on our shelf.
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.
If you’ve been to Baldface Lodge in Nelson, British Columbia, then you know. If you haven’t, these once-in-a-lifetime Vans x Baldface limited-run boot is your ticket to finding out. Baldface is shred mecca, featuring a fully guided cat operation accessing 32,000 acres of untouched Kootenay powder. Founded in 1999 on the idea that the snowboard community needed an authentic, professional, and safe backcountry destination that they could call their own, Baldface has become the bucket-list pilgrimage for those who stand sideways.
Working directly with Baldface’s world-class team of guides, the objective of this very limited single-season project was to build and outfit a boot that would perform while being adaptable to the many different terrain aspects of the region. From steep old-growth forests and open glades to sub-alpine bowls and pillow drops—the diverse terrain as understood by the guide team has helped to inform a completely new and unique offering from Vans. With features like ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene lace webbings and laces and a unique two-piece toe cap, this boot may be designed for riding at Baldface, but its high-octane construction is ready for wherever the winter takes you. Go SDF with confidence.
