2023 Vans Infuse Snowboard Boots
The Infuse is about performance. Always has been. Always will be. Since its earliest iterations influenced by Pat Moore, the drive towards progression has been central to its design. New for 2021, our flagship model has been reimagined and re-inspired by snowboarding’s Rocket Man, Arthur Longo. And this new hands-down, next-level, and best-in-class Infuse will reset your expectations of what a snowboard boot should be.
Loaded with top-shelf features such as the V3 UltraCush™ TNF FlashDry™ liner, V3 POPCUSH™ footbed, V3 UltimateWaffle™ outsole, and the Vans Flex Control System for custom flex tuning, the new Infuse doesn’t stop there. It now features a waterproof zipper shroud, D-ring gaiter hooks, and one-way breathable valves. Also new for this year is a stabilizing external heel counter and two-piece molded plastic toe cap with a knurled rubber overlay for protection and grip while hiking or on your sled. Now that you’ve got everything you’ve ever wanted in a snowboard boot, what are you gonna do with it?
Flex Rating – 5-9/10
Vans Flex Control System – Removable high-rebound Hytrel® tongue stiffeners allow riders to custom-tune their flex. Slide them both in for maximum support, use just one to provide either increased lateral or medial response or leave them out for a softer-flexing boot. As boots soften up over the course of a season, you can add the tongue stiffeners back in to extend the life of your boots.
Asymmetrical Flex Zone
Instep Flex Zone – The Instep Flex Zone functions to maintain natural ankle flexion in your boot, whether in or out of your bindings.
Powercuff Strap – Providing extra support at the top of the boot for increased stability and response. Its configuration gives riders customizable levels of engagement and the option of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue.
Pleasurecuff – The supple elasticity of the PleasureCuff delivers a cushioned, comfortable fit that keeps your calves supported.
V3 Ultracush with TNF FlashDry Liner – The most advanced liner ever from Vans, this inner features The North Face's FlashDry fabric, which transfers and eliminates moisture. An UltraCush layer provides all-day comfort with minimal seams, and a neoprene forefoot gives a natural flex. A dual-density heat-moldable core is bolstered by the latest X-Cage--extra security and heel hold that keeps you in contact with your board at all times.
V3 Boot Harness – This advanced support harness delivers the highest level of support to the ankle and instep, keeping the V3 liner and boot shell locked in and connected.
Vans Hybrid Plus Boa – The Hybrid system merges traditional lacing with the power of Boa closure at the instep. The Hybrid Plus system expands the range of flex control by adding an extra Boa pass around the back of the boot and across the instep to optimize the lines of pull and maximize flex control.
Vans Custom Slide Guide – Anatomical shape provides adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and unrivaled heel hold.
V3 POPCUSH Footbed – A triple density footbed that combines impact cushioning with energy transfer, the V3 POPCUSH fights fatigue with anatomical shaping, arch support, a moisture-wicking topsheet and OrthoLite® open-cell top foam.
V3 UltimateWaffle – UltraCush midsole construction for lightweight performance and advanced dampening. Aggressive perimeter lug pattern for increased traction and optimum snow release. Co-molded asymmetrical ESS arch cradle for additional support and response.
Waterproof Breathable Valves – Moisture management through waterproof valves ensures breathability--meaning dry socks, dry feet, and a more comfortable and longer ride.
Heat Retention 360º – All Vans snowboard boots feature a newly improved thermal retention layer that provides a 360° wrap of the toe box and between the outsole and the liner. This essential layer keeps heat in and cold out, ensuring all-day warmth and comfort.
Waterproof Zipper Shroud and D Ring – This feature is a durable and weatherproof fabric shield that protects the lower part of your boot from snow, ice, and moisture, ensuring easy access to your Boa closure no matter what the weather throws at you. It also features a metal D-ring for securely fastening your pant gaiters to lock out snow.
