Vans Aura Snowboard Boots - 2012/2013 - $149.83

The Vans Aura men's snowboard boots are a foundation style in the Vans lineup. They maintain classic styling with a soft, forgiving flex, lightweight construction and zonal Boa(R) lacing. This season, the Vans Aura boots feature new outsoles that provide a slimmer profile and reduced weight over last season. Double Boa lacing has 2 reels that control 2 specific zones of closure; the tongue dials the upper portion of the boots while the side-mounted dial adjusts the lower portion. Boa lacing offers on-the-fly micro adjustments and never comes untied; you get quick on and off, and consistent closure without pressure points. Trifit X thermal-formable liners with asymmetric heel-holding inserts feature closed-seam fleece upper cuffs, comfort flex toe boxes and low-volume soles. Open-cell foam interior cushioning layer adds plush comfort. Internal web harnesses hold liners closed for secure fit and prevent them from slipping inside shells; lace locks maintain desired tension. Molded EVA high-rebound footbeds feature integrated arch support, anatomically placed dual-density metatarsal and heel impact-relief pads, and antimicrobial linings. Low-profile soles work with the integrated liner construction to shorten the boots' footprint, thus decreasing toe and heel drag. Inverted waffle tread patten design delivers a functional snow-specific spin on the classic Vans waffle sole. Full instep articulation allows the upper and lower zones of the boots to flex independently, creating a fluid forward motion and minimizing shell distortion. - $149.83
