Vans X Baldface LTD Men's Snowboard Boots - 2022

 ***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 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. 

Manufacturer Description: 

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.

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.

Vans Hybrid Plus Boa 

The Hybrid system merges traditional lacing with the power of Boa closure at the instep. The Hybrid Plus system expands the range of flex control by adding an extra Boa pass around the back of the boot and across the instep to optimize the lines of pull and maximize flex control.

Vans Custom Slide Guide

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.


V3 UltimateWaffle

UltraCush midsole construction for lightweight performance and advanced dampening. Aggressive perimeter lug pattern for increased traction and optimum snow release. Co-molded asymmetrical ESS arch cradle for additional support and response.


V3 Boot Harness 

This advanced support harness delivers the highest level of support to the ankle and instep, keeping the V3 liner and boot shell locked in and connected.

INSTEP FLEX ZONE 

The Instep Flex Zone functions to maintain natural ankle flexion in your boot, whether in or out of your bindings

Powercuff Strap 

Providing extra support at the top of the boot for increased stability and response. Its configuration gives riders customizable levels of engagement and the option of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue.


PLEASURECUFF™

The supple elasticity of the PleasureCuff™ delivers a cushioned, comfortable fit that keeps your calves supported.

HEAT RETENTION 360o

The newly improved thermal retention layer provides a 360° wrap of the toe box and between the outsole and the liner. This essential layer keeps heat in and cold out, ensuring all-day warmth and comfort.

Waterproof Breathable Valves 

Moisture management through waterproof valves ensures breathability--meaning dry socks, dry feet, and a more comfortable and longer ride.


WATERPROOF ZIPPER SHROUD + D RING

This feature is a durable and weatherproof fabric shield that protects the lower part of your boot from snow, ice, and moisture.  It also features a metal D-ring for securely fastening your pant gaiters to lock out snow.
