The Vans Hi-Standard OG Snowboarding Boot is the benchmark boot when it comes to comfort and performance. An amazing all-rounder with a soft to medium flex (4-5/10), the Hi-Standard is super comfy to cruise in all day long.
With that classic lace-up style, the Hi-Standard embodies the classic Vans street look and brings it to the slopes. The main question when considering this boot is whether you're the type of person who wants to make everyone else feel bad about their own boots? The Hi-Standard is as good as it looks, so everyone else is sure to be jealous when they see you carving in these guys.
Armed with Vans' V1 PopCush Footbed, impacts are dampened and absorbed with ease. Pair that with their V1 UltraCush Liner for maximum comfort, their V1 Waffle Lug Outsole for amazing grip on both the snow and on the dancefloor, and their V1 Harness to completely eliminate any heel lift even on the choppiest gnar, and you've got one hell of a boot here that's stacked to the rafters with tech to keep you shredding until last lift. And probably after.
In terms of functionality and style, you're looking at a premium offering here. Vans have added their Instep Lace Lockout, which keeps the liner clamped to your foot without adding unnecessary pressure, as well as their plush Pleasurecuff, a faux fur top section to the liner that brings a touch of 70s class to the party. Oh, and if that wasn't enough, these guys also have fully heat mouldable liners, just in case you didn't already know these were the comfiest boots around.
Ready to step into the last pair of boots you'll ever own (until your next pair of Hi-Standards, of course)? We thought so.
