The perfect fit straight out the box, the Vans Encore snowboard boot is ideal whether you’re new to snowboarding or hitting up the park.

- Ability Level: Beginner and Intermediate
- FLEX (SOFT, MED, STIFF – 1-10): Soft
- FIT: Internal Web Harness – Vans sets the standard in every boot with versatile harness options. The Internal Web Harness is where it all begins.
- Instep Flex Zones – Maintaining flex not only in your boot but also when your boot is strapped onto a binding describes the main problem that the Instep Flex Zone solves. It's because additional flex cannot be achieved without the act of riding in mind.
- LINER: Flex Liner – For the rider who likes a little flex in their liner but can do without break-in delay. The Flex Liner needs nothing added to Vans' instantly perfect fit that rides on 50 years of footwear knowledge.
- Dual-Density Heat Moldable Core
- Closed Seam Brushed Fleece Cuff
- UltraCush™ Lite Interior Cushioning Layer
- LACING SYSTEM: Vans Boa® Coiler – This tongue-mounted single reel system utilizes a spring-loaded lace spool to automatically retreat lace cable slack for quick and efficient closure. Different lace guide radii help optimize closure force in specific areas of the boot.
- FOOTBED: V1 Footbed – Vans' single-density UltraCush™ foam has proven its superior dampening capabilities--the same reliable technology found in Vans footwear brings comfort and function prowess to the V1 footbed.
- Single-Density UltraCush™ Lite Construction – UltraCush Lite is a custom version of foam developed specifically for improving comfort and reducing weight. UltraCush Lite is used in a variety of constructions and applications, ranging from outsoles and midsoles to footbeds and liners.
- SOLE: Reverse Waffle Sole – A Vans outsole means Vans grip, and the Reverse Waffle outsole has plenty. Bringing half a century of footwear experience to bear, this durable shred foundation fights fatigue, absorbs impact, and optimizes feel and control.
- One-Piece Rubber Cupsole – For minimum footprint and maximum boardfeel.
- Vans' Special Recipe Rubber Compound – For all-terrain traction.
- Oversized Inverted Waffle Tread Pattern – For increased traction and optimum snow release.
- Other Feature: Heat Retention – To keep the warmth in and the cold out, all Vans boots come equipped with a thermal heat retention layer between the outsole and the liner. This layer reflects cold away from the foot and helps hold heat within the boot, keeping you nice and toasty.
