How to choose the right size of snowboard boots?

Choosing the correct size of snowboard boots is essential to ensure comfort and performance. Measure your feet accurately and use the size chart provided by the specific brand you intend to purchase. Snowboard boots may feel slightly tighter than regular shoes, but make sure your toes are not overly compressed, and you still have some room for movement.

How can I assess the stiffness of snowboard boots?

Snowboard boots come in various stiffness levels, ranging from soft to stiff. A soft boot is more forgiving and comfortable, suitable for beginners or freestyle riders, while a stiffer boot offers more responsiveness and precision, which is beneficial for advanced snowboarders and freeriders. Choose the stiffness based on your riding style and skill level.

How should I take care of my snowboard boots to prolong their lifespan?

To extend the lifespan of your snowboard boots, ensure you thoroughly dry them after each use, especially if they get wet. Store them in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. Clean the exterior with a damp cloth and use mild soap if necessary. Avoid using heat sources such as heated boot dryers, as they can damage the materials.

Are there specific snowboard boots for different types of snowboarders?

Yes, there are snowboard boots designed for specific riding styles, such as freestyle, freeride, all-mountain, and backcountry. Each style demands different features in the boots. It's essential to choose boots that match your preferred style and the conditions you usually ride in.

Shoes with a BOA closure

Shoes with laces

Snowboard boots with l acing are the most traditional snowboard boots. Ever since snowboard boots have been around, laces have been a part of them. The advantage of laces is that you can very accurately determine the tightness of your shoes. Also, laces are relatively easy and inexpensive to replace when they wear out.

Shoes with speedlace closure

The speedlace closure is actually nothing more than a cord that you pull like a lace and then hook behind a special closure. It is a convenient way to close your entire shoe in one go. Often, these laces can be tightened separately for each area.

Combination closures on your snowboard boots

Hybrid buckles actually combine several buckles into one complete closure system. Think of 2 Boa's for different zones on the snowboard boot, a combination of laces and a BOA closure like the one on the boot. VANS. There are also many combinations with a SPeedlace and BOA.

Flex in your snowboard boots

Roughly speaking, snowboard boots can be divided into three categories. Snowboard boots with a low flex, which are soft and forgiving snowboard boots. There are also snowboard boots with a medium flex and stiff snowboard boots with a high flex. The last type of boots is often loved by freeriders, carvers or people who want a lot of contact with their board. You can imagine that a stiff boot with a flex 7 or higher feels very direct and hard. So every move you make is transferred directly to your snowboard. This is perfect if you are already advanced.

If you are a beginner or just looking for comfort, choose a softer boot with a lower flex. This way, not every wrong move is immediately transferred to your snowboard. A softer shoe can also be very useful if you hang out in the park a lot and have to land often. This is just less comfortable with a hard shoe.

Which size snowboard shoes?

In our experience, many snowboarders have too big snowboard shoes. Too big shoes look very nice in the store, but when you go boarding, this quickly causes problems. We always start with measuring your feet. After all, measuring is knowing. Once you try on a snowboard boot, your first impression will be that it is too small. This is because you MUST feel the front as soon as you put the shoe on. Kick the ground with your heel so that your heel slides all the way into the back of the shoe. Close the shoe and stand in the same position as you stand on a snowboard. You'll notice right away that your toe is free from the front. We have written an extensive article about this: how to fit snowboard boots.

How tight should snowboard boots be?

Do you ever suffer from cold toes or tingling feet while snowboarding? Often, snowboard boots are too tight. This is caused by shoes that are too big. During snowboarding, you want your feet to stay fixed in your shoes and not slide around. This affects your steering. If your boots are too big, you tend to close them tighter so you don't slide. This changes the fit of the shoe, creating pressure points that impede circulation.

A famous shoe brand

Did you know that VANS was one of the first brands to make snowboard boots? The boots from VANS are full of technical features that make them very popular. For example, there is 'Popcush' in the heels of the sole. This provides extra cushioning after a hard landing. In addition, all VANS snowboard boots have a thermal inner lining that retains heat. This ensures that your toes stay nice and warm. Also, VANS is very good at making closures. The top models like the VANS Infuse and the VANS Invado have a hybrid closure. This means that the boost models feature a BOA closure with traditional laces. This combination allows you to close the boots perfectly.

The Burton Ruler and the BurtonPhoto BOA have been extremely popular. Especially loved are the fit and the way the boots fit into their Burton bindings.
