Vans Standard Snow Boot Review


When it comes to binding-free Powder Surfing one of the most important pieces of equipment to consider is your footwear. In our early years we've tried using snowboard boots, hiking shoes, and just about every variety of winter boot available. In our opinion here at Bull Mountain Pow Thrashers, whether we are hiking, snowshoeing, or snowmobiling into a surf-zone, nothing has compared to the performance of the VANS Standard Snow Boot.

There are a few features that we look for when choosing a performance boot for Powder Surfing. Keeping your toes warm and dry is obviously a number one priority, however we have found that flexibility, ankle movement and a soft, flat-based sole with a ton of traction is just as important to the sport of Powder Surfing.


Much like surfers ride waves Binding-free and Boot-free, the same rule applies to PowSurfing in which feeling the board beneath your feet is CRUCIAL for board control and your overall surfing experience. Vans delivers on every single one of those aspects with the Standard Snow Boot. Their flat based, "reverse waffle" or MTE 2.0 sole provides all the grip a Pow Thrasher could ask for. Its flat base design compliments our BMPT grip system perfectly allowing full "toe to heel" contact with the board, thus eliminating the chance of snow or ice build-up beneath your feet. Their waterproofing and attached (sewn in) tongue system keeps the snow OUT and the warmth and dryness IN! Everything a new or experienced PowSurfer needs all wrapped in a classic Vans style, signature side stripe included!


Whether you are a size Mens 6.5 - 13, or a Women's 8.5 - 14.5, Vans has you covered! Make the right choice this winter and set yourself up with the worlds most versatile snow boot EVER and buy the Vans Standard Snow Boot! Available at your local Boardshop and everywhere Bull Mountain Pow Thrashers are sold!
