Travis Rice Boa Snowboard Boot

In order to take on the most demanding terrain on the planet, Travis Rice needs every advantage he can get. That's why his signature DC Men's Travis Rice Boa Snowboard Boot is equipped with next-level tech that helps him send 100-foot jumps and charge straight down spines with precision and confidence.

When falling is not an option, as is often the case with the terrain Travis rides, you need scalpel-like precision, so DC hooked this boot up with a stiff flex that offers incredible response and dynamic power transfer. It also offers plenty of support for going huge in the backcountry or the terrain park. Aerotech ventilation in the high-performance Black SE liner allows cooling airflow and lets moisture escape when you're hiking a backcountry booter or hot-lapping on a powder day at the resort. An asymmetrical design reduces the overall footprint of the Asymmetrical Anti-Drag outsole to reduce heel- and toe-drag, which translates to catch-free descents on steep terrain. Unilite keeps the sole lightweight and cushy, while rubber panels ensure durability and traction where you need it most.

2nd Choice - should've been 1st

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I ordered these DC boots along with Ride Trident, Ride 92 & K2 Maysis (all Boa boots) to make a choice between them. I eventually chose the K2 Maysis over these DC's, which turned out to be a mistake (ready my review of the K2 boots).
The DC Travis Rice boots are true to size, very solid, and I really liked the zip-cover over the lower part of the boot - protecting the Boa laces and keeping the snow out if you boot-pack or skin.
I didn't take these boots because of 2 fairly minor points:
1. The inside of the inner boot is made of fabric so *incredibly* 'grabby' it was a huge effort to actually get my smart-woolled foot into the boot. No doubt the idea is to really hold the foot once it’s in the boot to prevent heal-lift etc. and maybe the fabric would wear-in over time, but when new it’s like trying to ‘slide’ a Velcro-foot into a Velcro-boot (i.e. really, really difficult!)
2. Like many boots, the inner boot has a Velcro strap to hold the sides together. Most other boots put this strap at the top of the boot where you can get to it. On the DC Travis, this strap is halfway down the boot and difficult to get to.
Pretty minor points really, and after my K2’s came apart less than half-way through the season, I wish I’d bought these instead.

Softer than expected

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These boots are great for all-mountain riding. They are a little softer in flex then I was expecting. I would say they are more like a 7 out of 10 then the advertised 9 out of 10. The new Boa laces they used seem to hold better than the previously exposed metal lace. This is important if you ever used the original laces because they don’t loosen up throughout the day. The protective cover on the shoe has some value in protecting the laces from the sharp edge of the board but falls short of perfection at the end of the day. The zipper tends to get clogged up with snow which freezes over. That’s the biggest flaw of these boots. At the end of the day when you just want to get out of the boots, you might have to work for it.

Great Boa, not Constricting!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are the most comfortable snowboard boot I've ever worn! I normally wear a 9.5-10 in Women's and the 9.5 fit me perfectly with a super super thick sock! This boot was snug and comfortable, and with the BOA duo I got it tuned in perfectly to my foot! I ran them out in a super cold day and had no problems staying warm. They were a little stiff, but just enough that I felt really in control and confident.


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The boa system has been around a while but for some reason I wrote the style off completely. I was worries about having a one point of failure lace up. However the half zip gator give protection to the laces on the foot of the boot and that gives me a warm and fuzzy. I am impressed with the way these boots fit around your feet tightly but leave you comfortable the whole day as well.
This boot is for sure stiff and unnecessary for some but if your looking to step up you game and go steep and fast and need a boot with rapid response, the T Rice's will sort you out.

Comfort + function

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love wearing this boots, this is my first time wearing boots that are stiff, but the ability to adjust them so easily makes it quick and instant comfort. If you want to just cruise some laps with your friends you can easily loosen up the boots and then if you want to charge some steeper lines just crank them down and they are going to be solid. The zipper on the top keeps out all the snow and ice. I highly recommend this boot for anyone looking for a bit more response and if you are looking at stepping up your lines this is a great first step.

Comfort & Performance

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these shoes after demoing - made quite the first impression! They strike a great balance between comfort and performance. Stiff enough to maintain confidence when you're charging hard, but offer enough flex for those looking to ride in the park.
I love the BOA system. I've tried just about every other lacing option and you cannot beat BOA for simplicity and ease of adjustment. My only gripe with the shoe is the junction of the lower laces creates significant foot discomfort with certain binding straps. I had to do some tweaking to ease the pressure, but overall I'm very impressed with these boots.

Comfortable, good quality boot.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I normally wear size 11-11.5 depending on the boot, Tried these in an 11 and they were definitely too small. Everything else about the boot is great though. The Focus Boa Closure is actually the first Boa system that I actually like. It locks in your fore foot, ankle and lower shin all equally where as in most Boa systems one of those sections you just cant tighten up enough to dial it in perfectly. With these boots that problem is gone and once you tighten these down, it's on point. I would just suggest going up a full size. Leather backing is also soooo comfortable!! Thought it was a bit much at first, but man I love it now! Also I would not say that these are stiff. I'd give them a 6.5 out of 10 on stiffness.

Different experience

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Boa system is great and the boot for the most part is comfortable. I wouldn't call this a stiff boot, they definitely have a bit of flex. When leaning forward on my toe side the boot pushes really hard against the top of my foot. Hopefully they just need to be broken in.

Glad to know someone else is feeling the same about the pressure on the top of the foot. They teeter between the best boots and the most uncomfortable boots I've ever owned. When tweaked perfectly, they are amazing. When they aren't, they go between flying all over the place and loosing a lot of the responsiveness that makes them great, and feeling like the top of your foot is in a sharp pinching vice. not the best interior lacing placement. Pretty accurate?

Top of the Line

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This is a great boot - it's comfortable, supportive, waterproof and bomber built. It is a bit on the heavy side, but I expected that with my size 11.5 foot. The one thing that took some getting used to was needed to tighten the Boas almost every run - I expect to have to retighten, but it seemed like a bit much - hoping this is just a break-in issue...

Love these boots

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I really liked these boots I've never tried a boa snowboard boot before because i have heard a lot of bad things but i was really impressed with these and i love the fact they have 2 boas!

Stiff, Pro boot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are super solid boots, almost like ski boots. They're not flexible and I would say not for beginners. These are for advanced riders and pros that know what a no-fall-zone is, and would like to avoid dying on a spine in Alaska because they couldn't control their board properly. Razors edge precision and control, at the sacrifice of some comfort and jibbiness. Get these if you're looking to take your big mountain shredding to the next level and your current mountain slippers aren't cutting it.
