It isn't typical to find American snowboarders clamoring "Encore, encore!" at the end of even the most glorious pow laps. But then again, the Vans Encore Snowboard Boots aren't your typical entry-level boots. Whether you're a park enthusiast or new to the game the Encore Boots provide an impressive blend of tech-based performance for season upon season of all-terrain riding. Lightweight and responsive, the Vans Encore Snowboard Boots feature heat moldable Flex Liners that do the dirty-work of breaking your boots in for you, while UltraCush™ foam in the V1 Footbeds and durable Reverse Waffle Soles fight fatigue and offer exceptional vibration dampening for sustained comfort from first chair to last lap.
