If you’re like Jamie Lynn, you’ll recognize a classic snowboard boot when you see it. The Vans V-66 is a straight shooter of a lace boot for every rider and every terrain. Iconic in style and equipped with a traditional lace-up construction, the V-66 is packed with features carefully crafted into an all-terrain boot with freestyle inclinations. It renders the old sticking point of lifting heels in snowboard boots null and void, while premium materials on selected colorways up the ante for a good-looking snowboard boot that will serve riders who seek every effective snowboard boot technology that matters.
FLEX RATING: 4-5 WITH REACH AROUND
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.

Customize your heel hold with the Internal Wrap Harness as it works in tandem with our comfort-driven liners to provide the best in personalized fit.
Much more than just a standard cuff strap, the Reach Around is attached to the inside shell of the boot and allows snowboarders the choice of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue—providing a custom fit and varying response levels at your fingertips.
The Tongue Lock Down system helps pull down the tongue as you tighten the boot at the instep, further eliminating heel lift in the process.
