Simply put, the Vans V 66 Snowboard Boot is a snowboarder's snowboard boot. Shallow in the vein of gimmicks and gadgets, rich in comfort and long lasting support. No moving parts, no flashing lights, just quality ingredients and a super dialed fit. Traditional lacing is the rider's choice for reliability and a custom fit thanks to stainless steel Double Posted Gripping lace hooks that prevent the laces from slipping so your boots stay tight from first run to last. The Tongue Lockdown system pulls the tongue down as you lace up to ensure a secure fit and eliminate heel lift. If that wasn't enough, it also features a Reach Around cuff strap that can be worn either over the liner tongue or over the shell tongue so you can customize the fit and response. Leather in the upper is waterproof and durable, and the Pleasure Cuff flexes at the back of the boot to minimize calf bite and keep you shredding until the lifts stop running. The QuadFit X Thermal liner is heat moldable and features an Asymmetrical X Cage for solid heel hold. Vans combined the cushioning powers of cork and EVA in the V Cork footbed to absorb impacts and vibrations from heavy landings and choppy terrain. It's finished off with a WaffleFlex outsole that blends the light weight and cushioning of EVA with hard wearing rubber for traction, durability, and optimum snow release.
