Vans Snowboarding | Bryan Iguchi Signature Series

The 'Guch gets his own boot to honour his two decades in the game

Vans is a company that many people can associate with, they’ve been around for scores of important milestones in snowboarding history. As they approach a significant milestone of their own, they release a signature collection for one of the most prolific snowboarders of our time: Bryan Iguchi.

The ‘Guch has been unapologetically doing his thing and throwing down for 20 years, so Vans are honouring this modern-day legend with his very own boot.

A rider like Iguchi can only demand the very best from his equipment, there’s no room for error when you’re days into a splitboard expedition. He needs a boot that can offer consistent comfort and control, whether it’s dropping into secluded couloirs or carving up early morning corduroy.

A dual boa allows for quick and easy micro-adjustment and can be changed on the fly when transitioning from skinning up to riding down. Having a isolated top and bottom section allows for endless versatility and the ability to dial in the fit perfectly to suit your needs.

Inside the shell you’ll find a V3 UltraCush North Face Flashdry liner, specifically designed to wick moisture away from the foot to curtail the onset of swampy feet after a days riding. An ergonomically designed footbed offers unmatched underfoot support and offers airflow through the boot.

To back up its backcountry credentials, the Verse has a zipped gaiter to prevent snow build up down the tongue. It also has a reinforced toe area to offer extra durability if and when you should choose to undertake a bootpacking mission.

For down days and off days, they’ve introduced the Iguchi UltraRange MTE Hi GTX shoe. A waterproof option that blends the snow world with skate culture and will have your back across any and all conditions.

While they very much honour their past, stagnation and lethargy are the anti-thesis of Vans. They tip their hat to the legacy of the brand yet are constantly striving for progression and thus partnerships like this one are founded and flourish.

The Verse Bryan Iguchi snowboard boot and UltraRange Hi Gore-Tex MTE, both in black/gum colourway, are available now at and Vans Snow retailers worldwide.
