Winter '22 Product Preview—Vans

Welcome to the Winter '22 Product Preview presented by Tactics! Enjoy the latest from Vans.

We only know where we are going because we know where we have been. For over 20 years, Vans Snow has stood for one thing: Building the best possible products so you can unlock your most genuine expression of style. Founded in our rich heritage and evolved through purpose-built innovation, our boots offer a fully customizable interface so that you can fine-tune fit, flex, and feel.

This winter, Vans has picked the brains of our diverse athlete team to further progress what is possible from a snowboard boot—perfecting every detail to better address the demands of our riders and the terrain they call home. From the recently evolved performance engine that is the Infuse, designed with Arthur Longo, to our first non-binary colorway of the Hi-Standard OG with Kennedi Deck, Vans Snow is coming to the plate with a progressive palette, packed with innovation and authenticity that reminds you why we started doing this in the first place.

So whether you spend your days skinning in the backcountry or hiking down bars in the city, Vans Snow has you covered.

Vans Hi-Standard OG by Kennedi Deck

  • SKU: n/a
  • MSRP: $199.99
  • STYLE: Unisex
  • -A boot made for everyone, Kennedi’s Hi-Standard OG features Vans’ V1 UltraCush™ liner for comfort, warmth and support, as well as V1 POPCUSH™—a 3D molded, anatomically shaped and PU-blended footbed that makes the boot fit and feel better. The V1 Waffle Lug outsole delivers a classic Vans vulcanized look to the snow, while maintaining superior performance and traction. Designed for all-mountain and park/street riding, this timeless style combines dynamic support, unfiltered boardfeel, and unrestricted mobility with the familiar feel of traditional lace closure and classic Vans aesthetic.

Vans Infuse – Arthur Longo

  • SKU: n/a
  • MSRP: $419.99
  • STYLE: Men's
  • -Seeking a boot that could handle the full spectrum of his snowboarding, Arthur collaborated with Vans on a 2021 redesign of their flagship Infuse snow boot. Loaded with top shelf features like a V3 UltraCush™ and TNF FlashDry™ liner, V3 POPCUSH™ footbed, V3 UltimateWaffle™ outsole and the Vans Flex Control System for custom flex tuning, the Infuse is designed for unparalleled adaptability and performance no matter the arena. Also new to the 2021 model is a waterproof zipper shroud, D-ring gaiter hooks, one-way breathable valves, a stabilizing external heel counter, and a two-piece molded plastic toe cap with a knurled rubber overlay for enhanced protection and grip. Arthur’s Infuse comes in a marshmallow and black colorway with a striking red Sidestripe and coordinating red liner, so you can look as good as you feel on the board. Designed with a drive towards progression since its earliest iterations, the Infuse is all about performance, and Arthur’s input has only made it better. This new best-in-class Infuse will reset your expectations of what a snowboard boot should be.

Vans Hi-Country & Hell-Bound – Sam Taxwood

  • SKU: n/a
  • MSRP: $399.99
  • STYLE: Men's
  • -A versatile rider needs a versatile boot. That’s why Vans designed the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound, inspired by Sam Taxwood, one of the most versatile riders in the game. Taking its name from the Hank Williams, Jr. classic outlaw country song “Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound,” the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound boot is optimized to take your street or backcountry shred game to the next level. Featuring key performance features, like Vans’ V3 POPCUSH™ footbed for enhanced impact cushioning and tuned energy return, the Vans Flex Control System and PowerCuff Strap for custom flex tuning, and a V3 UltimateWaffle™ outsole, the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound provides the confidence of all-terrain preparedness—and does it in style. And because Sam needs a boot as dynamic as his snowboarding, the Hi-Country & Hell-Bound can be adjusted on the fly and thrive in a variety of conditions. It also features Vans’ V3 liner, combining Vans’ UltraCush™ comfort technology with The North Face’s FlashDry™ materialization. Sam’s Hi-Country & Hell-Bound comes in a two-tone bone and black colorway, with a translucent black Sidestripe. Subtle branding keeps the look sleek, while a molded external heel counter adds texture.
