Nice boots!

Nothing beats a powder day on a snowboard.  Slashes, cutbacks, floaters, ollies, and pig-dogs.  Powder on a snowboard is nothing but pure pleasure.

Snowboarding has been given a lot of the credit for the new freeskiing movement. Snowboarding influenced freeskiing’s style, tricks, and ski shapes and it’s true. Snowboarding has always been progressive and cutting edge and it’s made everyone better as it rolls along.

The snowboard boots listed below will help snowboarding continue to influence and up the ante of the snow sliding world.

What Snowboard Magazine had to say about the 2015 K2 Maysis:

“Do you ever get that one area in your boot you just can’t seem to lock down? Just when you think you have it isolated and have given the ol’ Herculean tug at the lace, you realize you HAVE closed the gap but at the same time cut off all blood flow to the surrounding area. This is where Boa® tech comes in handy or, even better Dual Boa®. These nifty little wheels are a critical innovation in boot technology and have made customizable comfort as easy as turning a dial. Got Hobbit feet? Loosen thelower and crank the upper. Cankles got you down? Dial up the lower and let the upper breathe until that gout clears up. In addition, the Maysis forgoes stitches on the whole of the upper boot, eliminating the possibility of blowouts altogether. If you abide by the Boa®, as many of us do, you won’t do better than this.

For the rider who: is over laces, is over pressure points and is into fixing those problems.” – Snowboard Magazine
