Rome Inferno Boa Snowboard Boot - Men's

Bring the heat anywhere on the mountain.

If you like to ride a lotta bit of everything the mountain has to offer, and you prefer a little more support in your boot, then the Rome Men's Inferno Boa Snowboard Boot is for you. It's supportive without being overly stiff, so it doesn't feel like a ski boot, and it's packed with comfort-enhancing features to keep you on the slopes all day long.

The Double Boa lacing system independently tightens two different zones of the boot so you can dial in the perfect fit with just a few clicks of the dials, and Rome added a Focus Ankle Lock to prevent fatigue-inducing, response-sapping heel lift. Heat-moldable F.I.T. foam in the Pro F.I.T. liner conforms to the exact shape of your foot for maximum comfort and control, and self-adjusting Expand toe zones accommodate different toe lengths for reduced pressure and a better fit. The Pro FoamBed footbed cushions harsh drops and reduces vibrations, and it's equipped with Aegis Microbe Shield to prevent foot funk.

The TrackedOut sole features EVA for lightweight cushioning and rubber panels in high-wear areas for increased traction and durability. The NKS Shield adds ankle support for better toeside response, and Skate Cuff Memory technology molds around the ankle to reduce pressure and improve comfort.

Super comfortable boot

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Got these for my brother in law and he loves them. He was telling me the other day up riding they are more comfortable than his vans that were down in the car. The only downside is the boa system to tighten them. You can never get boa's to tighten like you can a regular lace up boot.

Straight inferno.

    I really wanted to like these boots, but after 3 days on the mountain, they've really

    Poor fit and difficult to tighten

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I had high hopes for these boots and really liked the construction of the liner. However, the boots are really loose in the ankles and difficult to tighten. I used all my strength to get the lower boa as tight as possible (difficult to get these to max tightness) and they were still way too loose and I even have a slightly wide foot. The inner liner tightening isn't good - it's actually directly connected to the boot itself rather than the liner, which is weird and doesn't allow it to get tight enough. The upper boa got tight (hurts your hands to tighten these things if you don't have your gloves on) but then the boot was really stiff up top but still loose in the ankles.

    The boot has a lot of material so it was tough to get my bindings tight on it. I used these boots for a day and a half of riding on varied conditions but mostly powder and trees. Having to make quick turns in the trees or moguls was very difficult and my heel would come up. I also found it challenging to hold a toe-side turn because of the stiffness (but I'm not used to stiff boots). I kept loosening the upper boa and trying to tighten the lower boa. Neither worked super well. However, the boots did feel good going fast on groomers with good snow.

    Lastly, the boots are near impossible to get off your foot. It's really odd that a boot with 3 tightening systems would be so difficult to get off your feet.

    Luckily, I was able to return them to the store I bought them at for a refund. I bought some Burton Photons instead (have a double boa and are very comfortable, but definitely less stiff than these Romes). I haven't used them on the slopes yet but the fit seems much better.

    Good boots but a pain to tighten

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Overall the boots are very comfortable and perform well but requires a lot of effort to tighten it to your liking without tearing off your skin on the dial, well, actually, it will tear off your skin if you do it with thin gloves or with bare hands so, make sure you are wearing your actual snowboarding gloves that have good grip to dial it in lol.
