Raise your shred standards.
Elevating what you'd expect from Vans' best-selling boot, the Vans Women's Hi-Standard Snowboard Boot raises the bar on comfort with its easy-going flexibility and plush liner. The Hi-Standard won't punish your feet into submission with an overly stiff feel, accommodating beginners seeking a forgiving boot and freestyle riders looking for a mellow, park-friendly flex. Traditional laces provide tried-and-true reliability, so you're never worried about messing with dials and quick-lacing systems.
The Flex liner instantly feels comfortable out of the box, conforming to your feet with dual-density, heat-moldable foam. The liner's cuff promotes a fuzzy-soft sensation upon placing your calves into the boot. Combating dreaded heel lift, the liner's internal harness keeps your feet secure when you're carving down the mountain. UltraCush foam in the V1 footbed smooths out the sting of flat landings and choppy, uneven snow. And to ensure dependable traction on packed snow, the Reverse Waffle sole delivers uncompromising grip with Van's legendary Waffle grip.

- Q & A
New favorite boots!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Don't let the description fool you, just because these are soft, it doesn't mean they're only meant for beginner and intermediate riders. I know a couple of pros (pro as in sponsored riders with their own pro model snowboards) who rip the male version of this exact model.
The boots are super comfortable which lets you ride all day without feeling any discomfort whatsoever, but if you like responsiveness like I do, just tighten them as much as you can and you're good to go. The soft tongue lets you get low with little effort in the park, but tighten it and you'll have no issues charging down the mountain. I used to swear by ThirtyTwo Lashed but I think Vans Hi-Standard is my new favorite.
Ps. They are true to size so get them in whatever shoe size you normally wear.
These boot are so dope! From the look to the quality. Feels like I'm just walking around in a comfortable pair of shoes. I'd say I'm a solid all mtn intermediate rider and these have been great so far (2 rides in). This is my second pair of Vans snowboard boots. I had the encore boa and it was a great boot that lasted multiple seasons. So I expect these to do just as well.
