Vans - 2017 - Hi Standard - Sample - Women's Snowboarding Boots - Black/White
The Vans Hi-Standard is the best-selling Vans boot of all time and has set the standard for classic style and modern performance. It is one of the Vans team favorites, and offers the fit and flex that the Vans pros need. Uncompromising fit on an easy lace-up construction with little interest in cutting corners, the Hi-Standard brings the promise of its name to the feet of every snowboarder who rides it. With half a century worth of experience in footwear, the use of a woman-specific construction is a reflection of the simple reality that women’s feet are different from men’s—evidenced by this boot and every boot in the Vans women’s snowboard boot lineup. The Hi-Standard has been around for over 15 years without any signs of slowing down, cementing the value of experience and reliability with a Reverse Waffle outsole and overall design that enhances its iconic look and uncompromising performance.
FLEX RATING: 3
Selecting a boot with the right amount of support is one of the most important decisions a snowboarder can make. The flex rating provides a reference for how boots within the Vans line compare in flexibility. A lower number designates a softer-flexing boot, and a higher number designates a more supportive boot. Boots equipped with the Vans Flex Control System, Reach Around and Vans Hybrid Plus will have multiple numbers showing the range of flex within which the boot can be adjusted.
