Nike Zoom DK 2014-2015 Snowboarding Boot Review

The Details:

American snowboarder Danny Kass is one the sport’s all-time greats. As well as racking up an impressive collection of X Games, US Open and Olympic medals, he can be found appearing in movies like That’s It, That’s All and Never Not – when he’s not propping up the bar or getting arrested, that is. He was one of the first high-profile riders to join Nike when it dipped its toe into the snowboard boot market, and he’s still working closely with the brand to develop his ideal pro model boot.

Given the reputation of its creator, it’s no surprise to learn that the Nike Zoom DK is a healthy balance between performance and fun – hell, even the colour scheme is part serious, part hyper. Designed to hold up in both the park and elsewhere, it’s got a relatively soft flex that’s great for all-round riding, and is pretty much good to go right out of the box. Top-end freestylers might want something a bit stiffer, but this delivers sufficient support for 90% of park riders and leaves the door open for big tweaks. The Zoom Air cushioning in the heel is the kind also found in Nike’s running shoes, built to withstand Mo Farah-esque levels of punishment, while the full-length midsole is made from lightweight, low-profile Phylon. As always, Danny’s choice is a traditional lace for that classic look and relaxed custom fit.
