Rail rider's choice.
Urban assassins Jon Kooley and Sam Taxwood, rely on the Nitro Men's Thunder TLS Snowboard Boot's soft flex and broken-in feel to help them throw down from the streets to the terrain park. Its low-profile design won't bulge out of your slim-fit pants, and it's ultralight and flexible for a skate-like feel when you're slaying rails.
The TLS 5 lacing system features two speedlace pulls that let you independently adjust different zones of the boot so you can dial in the perfect fit in seconds. If anything breaks it can easily be fixed without special tools, and when you're ready to get out of your boots simply give the Bail Out tab a quick pull and the shell opens without a fuss.
The slim cut of the Cloud 3 liner gives it a low-profile, skate shoe-like feel, and Thermacell material helps your feet stay warm. Plus, it has an anatomical footbed that absorbs impact and offers a comfy fit. EVA construction not only makes the outsole lighter, it also gives it a flexible feel and improves rebound for better cushioning. Rubber panels in high-wear areas of the sole increase durability and grip without adding too much weight or stiffness.

Everything you could want in a boot
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got these as an all mountain boot, and they've treated me right on every run I've taken so far. The plush, comfortable liners hold my heels in place while laying down hard toeside carves. Nitro claims these as park/street boots, but at the 5/10 flex rating, they feel more versatile than that. The boot shell is stiff enough to charge big lines, but still gives way when pressing hard into a press or tweak. The tightening system reinforces my preference for quick lace over boa or traditional laces. The dual located laces help customize the feel right for you when riding, and don't have any issues coming loose. I am the kind of guy that likes to put my boots on before I leave the house, leave them on for apres ski, and then chill out a bit at home before removing them, and these Nitro thunder TLSs allow that routine to stay comfortable for me.
