Best Snowboard Boots Reviewed & Rated

There is more to choosing a snowboard boot than just size and style. Flexibility, fit, responsiveness, firmness, and lace tightening systems are just some of the variables that you need to consider. Where and how you plan to ride, for example, will dictate what amount of flex versus softness will serve you best. Freestyle riding calls for a softer, more flexible boot while those looking for speed will want a stiffer boot with more responsiveness. Fit is also not as easy as making sure the boot is big or small enough. Eliminating heel lift and side to side movement as well as any areas of inordinate pressure are absolutely essential. It is essential to look beyond just brand and style to ensure that the boot – arguably the most important purchase when putting together a riding package – is the perfect fit in every way.

Criteria Used To Evaluate The Best Snowboard Boots

Lacing System

An important part of any snowboarding boot is the lacing system. It is crucial that the ankle and heel stay securely in place, with as little foot movement as possible. Ideally, the boot should fit tightly while still being comfortable and not cause any discomfort or blisters.

There are three lacing systems commonly offered for snowboard boots; quick-pull, Boa, and traditional. There are also boots that have a hybrid design that mixes two of these systems together into one. All three of these systems are designed for easy on and off wear, while no one system is conclusively better than the others, it really depends on the wearer’s preference.

Quick-Pull: This lacing system is a one-pull corset-style lacing system that is fast and is good for individual zone tightening. This makes for a fine-tuned tightness of forefoot lacing separate from the ankle and lower leg.

  • Pros:
    • Fast tying
    • Tighten wearing gloves
    • Laces tuck away
  • Cons:
    • Difficulty pulling enough to tighten laces
    • Pressure points where eyelets attach to boots
    • When laces wear out the boot is unusable

Boa: The Boa lacing system is made of small-diameter cables (usually stainless steel) attached to a knurled wheel or dial which allows the wearer to adjust the comfort level of the fit. Boa lacing systems guarantee a secure and form-fitting fit around the lower leg and foot.

  • Pros:
    • Super quick & easy
    • Can tie one-handed
    • Can tie with gloves on
  • Cons:
    • Level of tightness is less customizable

Traditional: The traditional lacing system has been tried and tested over the years and always performs the way that it should. This type of lacing also offers the wearer more ability to customize their boots by picking specialty or designer laces over stock ones.

  • Pros:
    • Manually customize tightness by hand
    • Lower price
    • Easily replaceable
  • Cons:
    • Hard to tie with gloves on
    • May untie

Style/Wear

There are several different riding styles; Freeride, All-mountain, and Freestyle, depending on your style of ride you will require different features from a snowboard boot.

  • Freeride: Freeride refers to off-piste terrain and the occasional groomed run with a need for speed and a precise ride. Stiff snowboard boots are best for this type of rider because the rigidity of the boot helps to create edge power for scribing across the firm and tightly packed snow.
  • All-Mountain: Is any ride on terrain made for snowboarding, usually untracked powder, park-and-pipe, or groomers. All-mountain riding is the most common style and these riders tend to prefer a more flexible boot.
  • Freestyle: Freestyle is for the rider who prefers more fun-style terrains like, half-pipe, jumps, spins, tricks, and rails. Generally, soft and flexible boots are preferred when Freestyle riding.

Flex

Snowboard boots come with different flex ratings, anywhere from soft to stiff. Boot flex is really based on the wearers’ preference but usually, a softer flex is chosen by newer riders. For more seasoned riders, like all mountain riders, a stiffer flexing boot is usually preferred. Boot flex ratings are not always the same with every manufacturer which is why flex can be different from brand to brand.

Most manufacturers assign a number rating ranging anywhere from one to 10, one is the softest and 10 is the stiffest. Usually, ratings will follow a similar structure, for example; 1 to 2 would be soft, 3 to 5 is medium, 6 to 8 as stiff, and 9 to 10 would be very stiff.

 

Liners

There are different varieties of liners that come with snowboard boots and the best kind for you will depend on your riding style. Below are the three most commonly used types of liners;

Stock Liners Give minimal padding and stability, conform to the shape of your foot after several wears
Heat-Moldable Liners Top of the line liners that truly give the perfect wear
Moldable Liners

 

Next level up from stock liners in materials used; they are designed to mold to the shape of your foot over time through body heat.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q: What are custom insoles for?
A: Custom insoles help to alleviate any misalignment of your feet, knees, or ankles. They are designed to provide extra support for your feet and body which reduces the risk of sustaining injuries.

Q: Do I really need a snowboard specific sock, or are regular socks okay to wear with my snowboard boots?
A: Wearing appropriate snowboard socks will compliment the fit of your boot and will lessen rubbing to prevent blisters. Snowboard socks are also designed to wick moisture away from the foot, helping to keep your feet cool and dry.

Q: How should my snowboard boots feel when I put them on?
A: It’s very important that your snowboard boots feel comfortable when you wear them. Your toes should have enough room to wiggle slightly and your heel should be firmly planted so there is no movement when you lift up or down. There should be no uncomfortable pressure points and your foot should feel securely planted in the boot.

Q: Why do my feet feel numb and tingly while I’m on the slopes?
A:
There could be several reasons for your feet feeling numb and tingly while snowboarding, it could be caused by water leaking into your boot, ineffective weather protection, or it could be caused by boots that are too tight and cut off your circulation. This is why it’s important to look for a snowboard boot made from quality materials that will adequately protect you from the elements.

Q: How do I choose the best boot for me?
A:
There are several things to consider when deciding which snowboard boot to buy, like, your level of experience, the terrain you will be wearing them on, the width of your foot, and the type of flex which you prefer. You should take these things into consideration and assess which boot to buy based on your responses.
