Vans Verse: Look Mom, No Laces

by The Editors on November 7, 2017

Stop us if we’d said this before, but we’d put Boa on all our shoes just to get rid of bulky, unsightly laces. That’s part of the reason why Vans’ new Verse snowboard boots look so good. 

Offering extensive technical range and precision across two different lacing zones, the Verse is formulated with the Boa® Custom Focus Plus system, allowing for double optimization in and around the boot. Paired with Vans’ adjustable Custom Slide-Guide, the Verse provides maximum heel-hold and a more personalized, comfortable fit. The Verse lacing system is also protected by a waterproof zip-up shroud to seal the lower portion of the boot from 
the elements, keeping your feet dry during long days on snow. Complete with heat-moldable Custom Liners and UltraCush V3 footbeds, this versatile all-mountain snowboard boot features Vans’ new lightweight and responsive Ultimate Waffle outsole that offers first-rate heel dampening and asymmetrical arch support.

Sounds like a good pair of boots. For the rest of the features (and photos), please follow the jump.
