Taking design inspiration from the legendary ZX 500 running shoe, the Adidas Men's ZX 500 Snowboard Boot wraps your feet in the iconic 3 Stripes, with a versatile medium flex for riding everything from park kickers to fresh powder. Its synthetic upper features a 3D injection molded tongue that wraps around your shin for a better fit than stitched tongues found on many entry level boots. Equipped with dual zone speed lacing, the ZX 500 independently tightens along the upper and lower zones for a truly customized fit. Keep both zones super tight for the utmost in response or loosen the upper for a bit more freedom to flex through the terrain park. Either way, it's incredibly quick and easy to tighten, also offering dual zone adjustability that's simply not available on traditional lace up boots. Working as both an impact absorbing midsole and traction equipped outsole, the boot's EVA sole cushions nasty landings and excess vibration when you're launching kickers in the terrain park and cruising over crud. It features traction grooves for sure footed grip when you're walking across snowy parking lots and one footing across flat sections, such as cat tracks and long run outs.
