The House Boardshop carries 3 different styles of Nike Snowboard Boots this season; 2 for men (Vapen & Zoom Force 1) and 1 for women (Vapen). All of the Nike Snowboard Boots have great qualities depending your preferred riding style. From the park to pow these boots give can the support you need and comfort you want.
The Vapen and Zoom Force 1′s ultra low profile outsole offer great board feel and outstanding grip. The outsoles of Nike Snowboard Boots look cool and ride even better because of the vice grip tread inspired by the Air Force 1 basketball shoe.
Although each boots midsoles vary slightly, these Nike Snowboard Boots have exceptional Phylon midsole cushioning along with individual additions. The Vapen’s Polyurethane (PU) heel cushioning is pillow soft and the Zoom Force 1 Zoom Air heel technology makes harsh landings feel soft. If you want a Cadillac type ride, look no further, because these boots are cush!
With lateral and medial structure the Vapen and Zoom Force 1 provide carving support and jib functionality for you to be the best rider at your mountain. The full length internal backstay, neoprene flex notch, and 3D molded tongue in the Vapen give the boot fantastic rebound properties. Power Straps and lace lock hardware on the Air Force 1 tighten with a simple tug for a custom fit. With uber high end waterproof sythetic leather uppers these Nike Snowboard Boots will keep your little piggies warm and dry.
Nike Snowboard Boot liners are re-heat moldable. You can heat mold liners, and then re-heat mold the liners again if you’d like. Underneath each liner on top of the midsole and in the shell walls the Vapen and Zoom Force 1′s have Warming Blanket Stroble Technology that keeps your body’s heat inside the boot and the cold weather out.
The Vapen’s Polyethylene (PE) and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) padded liner has an attached Roman sandal inspired lacing instead of a Baxa internal lace harness system like the Zoom Force 1‘s upper has that the PE/EVA liner slides into. Both Nike Snowboard Boots liner laces have a simple lace lock pull system that guarantees a snug heel hold during those maximum velocity toe edge turns.
The Zoom Force 1 has a beefed up liner with a Outlast treated sockliner, Poron cushioning, a power strap that offers a firm fit on top of the liner, and added support material on both the medial and lateral sides. Neoprene toe boxes in these Nike Snowboard Boots won’t let your toenails crack when landing land on hard pack snow conditions.
Traditional lacing systems can be found on these Nike Snowboard Boots. The Vapen has webbing loops and The Zoom Force 1′s perfect fit can be attributed to the lace locking hardware located in the transition zone for the upper and lower portions of the boot.
Nike has dumped more than enough money into R&D and the product of their ideas has been welcomed by the snowboard industry with open arms. Get on that train and check out some Nike Snowboard Boots because the best has yet to come.
