With more than twenty years in the snowboard boot game, Vans have developed their line to the point that there’s a boot in there for every kind of rider. And in the case of the Infuse, which is the pinnacle of their tech, it’s a single boot for EVERY rider. The Infuse epitomises Vans’ approach to their boot line – ultimate customisation for the best user-driven fit. There are a host of technologies that are in the Infuse which allow you to tweak it so that it can be a super stiff and aggressive, hard charging freeride boot, or soft and flexible, perfect for the progressive rider or street rat. Hytel tongue stiffeners can be added or removed easily, giving the rider the option of enhancing their lateral or medial flex, leaving them out for a soft flex or putting them in for a stiff ride. A Hybrid Boa lacing system that gives the rider the ease of use and power of the Boa system in tandem with traditional lacing for finely tuneable fit, plus a power strap across the shin.
