Yup. Vans has been building snowboard boots for 20 years and remains one of the most committed brands in advancing tech. They were the first brand to introduce BOA to snowboarding in a tight partnership with BOA and although primarily cosmetic, this boot has a custom designed BOA knob that is new for 2014. The new Slide Guide for the Hybrid Boa system that you see in this boot is also new for 2014 and allows you to slide and focus instep pressure anywhere along your instep - Rad!.
In terms of Committment to tech, Vans produces 5 unique BOA systems, 4 Liners, and 4 footbeds.
