snowboard boots review 2015

A snowboard boot is one of the most important parts of a good snow setup and getting the right fit can make a big difference in how your day goes. To get the most out of your boots, you should try them on with thin, synthetic snowboard socks and have them custom-molded to your foot.

For the best fit, it's recommended to have a professional fit by an REI snowboard boot specialist or a qualified boot shop. If you're not able to have that service, be sure to buy a pair of boots that have a "1:1" lasting, which means that the shells and liners have a similar amount of volume, so they last as long as possible.

Buying the Right Snowboard Boots

A well-fitting snowboard boot will keep your feet comfortable from the first chair to the last. It will also help you to have a better experience on the mountain.

The flex rating of the boot should be chosen depending on your riding style. Soft flex boots are more suitable for beginner riders, while firm flex boots will be better for more advanced riders who want to improve their skills.

Step On Technology

A Step On boot will offer more power transfer to your board, making it a great choice for aggressive riders who want to feel a little more confident on the slopes. Compared to softer boots with a traditional lace system, Step On boots can be more difficult to lace up fully, but that can be easily fixed with a Boa(r) closure.
