The best is yet to come.
Built off the notion that a responsive boot shouldn't punish your feet into submission, the Vans Men's Sequal Snowboard Boot serves up a hefty dose of cushioning, as well as a customizable flex that ranges from mid-range to highly responsive. Vans' Flex Control System provides tongue inserts to fine-tune the boot's flex to your precise needs. Insert both for the stiffest possible flex, remove either the inner or outer stiffener for a bit more flex, or ditch both for maximum freedom. Traditional laces deliver the tried-and-true response you've come to love with regular lace-up boots. And, helping to eliminate heel lift when you're riding at blistering speeds, the Tongue Lock Down cinches the tongue down as you tighten the boot's laces.
As the boot's most impressive feature, the Custom liner is made of dual-density, heat-moldable foam for the cloud-nine comfort demanded by 100-day riders. A moisture-wicking interior keeps your feet from feeling cold and clammy as you a sweat throughout the day. Another cool feature is the boot's Reach Around cuff, which wraps around the boot's inner shell for a highly supportive fit. This cuff closure can be secured around the liner for all-around support or cinched over the tongue for the utmost in hard-charging stiffness.
Absorbing excess shock and vibration, the UltraCush Lite midsole takes the sting out of flat landings and choppy snow conditions. The V-Cork UltraCush Lite footbed features a heat-moldable arch cradle that conforms to your foot over time. Its airflow perforations prevent perspiration buildup while the heel impact relief pad prevents bruising when you're stomping heavy landings. Throw in Vans' aggressively lugged V-Hex rubber outsole for a freeride-friendly boot that's ready for backcountry tours and bootpacks.

Vans Sequel Boot
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I ride about 30 days a year and needed a firm boot and settled on this and haven't been disappointed. This is a very stiff boot out of the box but the really cool thing about this boot is that you can customize the flex you like. I took the inserts out of the tongue and the X cage Velcro insert until the boot gets a little bit more softer then I will add them.
-highly customizable in terms of flex
-heat moldable liner, very plush liner keeps my feet feeling nice
-durable material not that cheap stuff that scratches easy
-reacharound stap is super cool giving you the ability to tighten the liner to the boot eliminating heel lift
-sole of the boot is very grippy and also plush for the step
-some people think the boot looks like hiking boots? I like them though...
-laces are ugly
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I purchased this boot as a replacement for my boyfriend when his Salomon boots blew out on day two. He had his heart set on the boots he initially picked out until he tried on these Vans boots. He has not had a single complaint and has been head over heels about them. Extremely comfortable, nice and stiff (what he wanted), and heat moldable. All in all they have been a hit and he has managed to maximize his days out on the slopes for the past month. I think he has been converted over to the Vans club.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
I wanted to keep these but just couldn't get them tight enough for my narrow foot and wen with the Infuse boot instead. Ive got a narrow foot and in the end these just weren't going to work. Great looking boot though.
