If you want one boot to do everything and also last a damn-long time, the Vans Infuse is for you.
It's the most customisable boot in the Vans Snow range so you can dial in the fit as the conditions change throughout any given day, or adapt the flex as the boot moulds to your riding style, foot shape and the demands of the terrain you ride as your winter progresses.
Whether you're sending early season groomers and pow runs, enjoying sunny mid-winter park sessions, or party-lapping in the hot spring slush and side-hits, you have full control over the flex of the boot thanks to the Vans Flex Control System with Hybrid Plus Boa closure.
This Hybrid Plus Boa technology is a step above the rest. Built on Vans' original, industry-first Hybrid Boa, this closure system has expanded into a tool for elevated flex control right where you need it. It revolutionises closure accuracy and flex-variability in a one-and-the-same system.
As the season advances – to the stage when other boots might start to soften up – you can restore the stiffness of the Infuse boot to its original best by employing the removable tongue-stiffeners and perfect the tightness around your calves with the power strap. Combine these fastenings with the traditional lace setup, supported by extra robust metal fastenings, and the Hybrid Plus Boa closure system, there's no way you could ever complain about soggy boots towards the end of winter.
This one-of-a-kind boot has V3 UltraCush Lite footbeds and heat-mouldable liners to keep your feet perfectly-supported, with a removable X-cage for maximum heel hold while you perfect your switch toeside carves. This season, the Infuse boasts new Ultimate Waffle outsoles to reduce the weight of the boot, and provide more heel dampening and arch support than ever before – without compromising responsiveness, so you still get that iconic Vans board feel we all know and love.
Most importantly, the Infuse is backed by Vans global snow team rider Pat Moore, who has cemented his place in the annals of snowboarding history as one of the most versatile and well-rounded snowboarders ever. If Pat can take this boot from huge street spots to backcountry booters and everything in between within a matter of weeks, you know it's going to stand up to the tests of your average winter. It truly is a high performance, multi-purpose boot built for snowboarders of every level, and every kind of terrain.
“No matter your riding style or ability, this boot can transform to how you ride,” Moore affirms. “The combination of the BOA, laces, power strap and bonus tongue stiffeners allows the Infuse to easily evolve throughout my snowboard season or even throughout the day, depending on terrain and snow conditions.”
As well as Pat's Custom Infuse boot, there's a matching Sk8-Hi MTE and an extra padded Slip-On that both look like an absolute dream to wear. Both shoes have the same grape leaf green colour as the Infuse boots, complete with black accents and details, so you can keep your style consistent wherever you go. Roll off the mountain in the boots, hit the hotel lounge bar in the Slip-Ons while you check the day's footage, then out for dinner in the snowy streets with the Sk8-Hi MTE, all with the same distinct look. Who knew Pat was such a fashionista.
