Vans Hi-Standard Snowboard Boot - Men's

Nothing but the best.

The polls are in, and the best-selling Vans boot of all time—the Men's Hi-Standard Snowboard Boot—has been the go-to choice for freestyle shredders for over 15 years. With its flexible feel and luxurious fit, the Hi-Standard delivers comfortable performance for everyone from pro pipe riders to beginners learning to slide boxes.

The traditional lacing system features double-posted gripping lace hooks that prevent the laces from slipping, so your boots stay tight from first run to last. A heat-moldable Flex liner gives nailed-in heel hold and the cushy feel of soft interior cushioning foam. An internal web harness keeps your heel locked down for superior response and less fatigue, and a heat-retaining temperature shield that reflects body heat back to your feet for extra warmth without added weight.

Not to mention, the V2 UltraCush Lite EVA footbed features high-rebound impact relief pads at both the forefoot and heel to absorb harsh impacts and smooth out vibrations in choppy terrain. It's finished off with a Reverse Waffle outsole that's made with EVA to reduce weight while improving cushioning, and strategically-placed rubber in the most high-wear area ensures long-lasting durability and traction.

great feeling boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

this boot fits great, straight out of the box.
keep in mind they are a soft boot.

Not as good as they were...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These boots honestly disappoint me. I bought them hoping for the same quality build that I got from older versions of the Hi Standard. But instead, on my 8th day riding the boot a lace hook shot off (pulled right out) as I tightened the lace.

Furthermore, I felt like the faux leather ripped super easily having done no more than nicked my edge on the chairlift.

Typically I don't care about cosmetic defects, but when the lace hook broke I decided these are made cheaply compared with the versions that predates these.

They're comfy, but don't expect much for boot life. I honestly feel like this should be honored by warranty, but whatever. I will not be buying vans again in the future.

no complaints

Best Boot for the Buck

Vans really impressed me with the Hi-Standards. This is my second pair, and I love them. They are a softer boot with plenty of cushion and come with the golden seal of approval by the snowboarders at High Cascade Snowboard Camp. They are a great boot for park riders of any skill level, as well as beginner to intermediate riders that want a boot they can do anything in without breaking the bank. If you prefer a softer boot, these would be the first boot I'd recommend. As Jimmy Farnan said, these don't take long to break in and felt comfortable straight out the box.

True to size, I wear a 10.5 in a street shoe as well as these Hi-Standards, even after break in.
