With the Deeluxe ID Ltd, you have a choice of two liners. The Stage 3 option is a safe pair of hands for your feet, with a comfy and breathable toe box at the front and heel harness at the back. It isn’t topping out on the tech front, but it complements the shell nicely; there’s no chance you’ll feel short-changed with this one.
If you’ve got a bit more cash, we can think of few better ways to spend it than upgrading the liner to the brand new Custom ThermoFit version. As the name suggests, a bit of heat-moulding treatment on the unique perforated foam will deliver next-level comfort whilst also preventing any overheating. Such lengths have been taken to keep your heel secure that it almost feels like a human rights violation. Free The Heel! (actually, don’t. It knows what it did…).

Do ‘team riders’ have the clout that they used to? Maybe not, but while we may not be in the UnInc or Forum 8 days anymore, there’s still much that a solid team can offer – not least from an R&D perspective. Deeluxe’s hired guns gave this one the thumbs-up, and it’s highly likely that you will too.
The standard Team ID is also a fine choice, and will be far easier to get your hands on, but for the option of the premium liner – not to mention the rad ice-themed aesthetic – the Ltd version earns its spot in the Whitelines 100.
- An unapologetically, uncompromisingly freestyle-focused design
- The new Custom ThermoFit liner puts the deluxe in Deeluxe
- Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

“The Team ID LTD. is a very special and important boot for everyone at DEELUXE. This limited colorway of the TEAM ID is based on the team boots, that we exclusively make for DEELUXE team riders.
If you know DEELUXE, you know that our team is the heart and soul of the brand. Accordingly, it’s a priority for us to have our riders 100% stoked with our products. The TEAM ID is the team favorite model since its inception. It combines a mid-soft flex, out of the box comfort and many team-favorite DEELUXE features. Hence, it was a no brainer for us make the team boots based on the TEAM ID. Every season we put a lot of effort into coming up with a fresh highlight colorway for the team boots. We not only want to supply our riders with a high quality product, we also want to keep them stoked with the look of the boots. I’m sure you heard the saying: “If you look good, you feel good. If you feel good, you ride good.”
We’re super happy with how the limited ice colorway turned out and the feedback we got was overwhelmingly positive. Keep your eyes open for this limited version of the team ID and better be quick to get your hands on a pair of these!”
