Why we chose the Rome Bodega Snowboard Boots: It comes storming out the gate filling a key gap in the market.
Small bodega’s are a staple of life in New York City, they’re the go-to favourite of many locals, and the key to their success lies with their versatility and adaptability. The Rome Bodega boot collection is much the same, it’s been going strong for years and has garnered a solid reputation among playful riders looking for one boot to do it all. New for this season, the women’s specific model (the one seen in the images) is all set to kick ass and take names as a softer flexing, all-terrain destroyer. The Bodega collection features four boots with a lace option, hybrid boa, dual boa and the women’s boot featured.
Everyone’s feet are different, and as such there’s no such thing as ‘the best snowboard boot’. And although you might not know the right boot for you until you try it on, a good place to start your research is with a company like Rome. Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate has worked steadfastly since 2001 to push innovation in the industry. A rider owned and operated company, Rome SDS produces high quality gear, by snowboarders for snowboarders.
“If you don’t want to pigeon-hole yourself into a certain type of riding, the Bodega is a tasty option for your daily drive”
The Bodega sits in their boot line as a lively and versatile option, it’s the middle of the road for both flex and price. If you don’t want to pigeon-hole yourself into a certain type of riding, the Bodega is a tasty option for your daily driver.
With the list of features and ingredients in some snowboard boots reading like something out of Star Trek, it’s refreshing to have the Bodega as a no fuss, no frills, no nonsense alternative. It does what a snowboard boot is meant to do, sit comfortably on your foot and transfer your input down the bindings, simple.
