Award: Precision Fit
Salomon Snowboards Malamute Snowboard Boot
Solomon boots are known for comfort, but the Malamute adds stiffness to the equation for more precise riding on any terrain. With Powerlock laces and heat-moldable Response Custom Fit Pro Liners, you’re able to fine-tune these boots to get the exact fit and support you need to take your shredding to the next level.
What we liked:
After heat-molding the liners to work with personal stance and riding style, the Salomon Malamute boots took riding to a new level. We felt comfortable pointing through technical terrain in both powder and groomed trails. Normally, that precision comes at the expense of your comfort, but we were able to ride in these boots all day without any feet hurting or getting cold. Get them here!
Award: First to Last Lift
Burton Photon BOA Snowboard Boots
Burton’s Photon Boa Snowboard Boots were designed for comfort and convenience during long days on the mountain. The Dual Zone BOA construction lets you quickly tighten the boots for a perfect fit without having to take your gloves off or deal with frozen laces. And the Imprint 3 liner gives you all-day warmth and comfort while you ride. All-day comfort and convenience are provided.
What We Liked:
Feet are usually one of the first things to send anyone into apres mode on the mountain, but now we find ourselves routinely riding through the whole day comfortably. We absolutely love the BOA Coiler Closure System. It’s extremely easy to get these boots on and off without wasting extra time that could be spent shredding. Buy them now!
