Vans haven’t got to where they are in snowboarding on their name alone; at the end of the day, it’s about good kit – and if you want to make the best, it’s important to rope in those who know. This year they’ve teamed up with Pat Moore, Blake Paul and Danimals to make sure the Infuse, Verse and Implant have all had detailed feedback from experienced team riders.
In the case of the Vans Ferra, input comes courtesy of Aimee Fuller. As a slopestyle specialist who gets more airtime than a workhaholic messenger pigeon, you can have faith that her boot can withstand heavy landings from dawn to dusk. That’s all thanks to the UltraCush footbeds, which are built to soak up big impacts and everyday chatter alike.
