A classic for a reason.
Simply put, the Vans V-66 Snowboard Boot is a snowboarder's snowboard boot. No frivolous parts, no glitz and glamour—just quality ingredients and a super-dialed fit. Traditional lacing is the rider's choice for reliability and a custom fit thanks to stainless steel Double-Posted Gripping lace hooks that prevent the laces from slipping so your boots stay tight from first run to last. The Tongue Lockdown system pulls the tongue down as you lace up to ensure a secure fit and eliminate heel lift. And if that wasn't enough, it also features a Reach Around cuff strap that can be worn either over the liner tongue or over the shell tongue so you can customize the fit and response.
Leather in the upper is waterproof and durable, and the Pleasure Cuff flexes at the back of the boot to minimize calf bite and keep you shredding until the lifts stop running. The Response liner is heat-moldable for just the right fit, full of plush comfort, while the cushioning powers of an UltraCush V2 footbed absorbs impacts and vibrations from heavy landings and choppy terrain. It's finished off with a WaffleFlex outsole that blends the light weight and cushioning of EVA with hard-wearing rubber for traction, durability, and optimum snow release.

Two Thumbs Up For V-66
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I purchased these boots because I was looking for a medium stiffness boot with intentions of spending an even amount of time between riding park and all mountain. After receiving my boots and breaking them in that's exactly what I got. After three months of riding them consistently a few times a week these boots are still showing no signs of compromise and still hold their medium stiffness. They even have an X-brace in the inner liner to really keep your foot locked in place and prevent heel lift. As for sizing, these boots run true to size. I normally wear a size 11.5 in running shoes so I decided to try the 11.5 in these as well and it was a perfect fit. Overall I'm really impressed with the quality and performance of these boots and would recommend them to anyone with similar intentions to mine.
