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.
"The classic lace is still hard to beat for sheer aesthetics, and is also easy to tweak to your liking"
Vans snowboard boots are all about the customisation, and the Ferra is no exception. You can fine-tune your fit in so many ways, not least of which is the Hybrid Boa system that ensures you'll never get heel-lift. The internal harness adds to the secure feel, and the Reach Around strap lets you choose exactly how much support you get at the font.
It's all finished off with a classic lace that's still hard to beat for sheer aesthetics, and is also easy to tweak to your liking. You'll be able to watch Aimee rock these in the upcoming Olympics, but if you need a closer look right now then check out more details of the Vans Ferra here.
