The Vans Special-Edition Snowboard Boots are Ready for Opening Day
Fashion, form, and function collide as Vans unveils two premium designer snowboard boots this holiday, highlighting the meticulous craftsmanship of Vault by Vans designer Taka Hayashi, and the vivid spirit of British design house Eley Kishimoto. Vans Snow expands its creative horizons to showcase an aesthetic evolution of the Vans snowboard boot collection while delivering superior comfort and customization at your fingertips.
Vault by Vans designer Taka Hayashi brings more than a decade of footwear design experience to elevate Vans' classic heritage boot, the V-66, into a beautifully crafted, refined leather performance boot made with premium materials. Atop a stylish color-blocked silhouette, Hayashi applies intricate embossed native-inspired motifs on the upper with unique perforated Sidestripe detailing.
As a part of a global Vans women’s collaboration story, Vans turns to British fashion duo Eley Kishimoto to create a vibrant Aura boot covered in their bold “Drums” print, an energetic interpretation of Vans’ iconic checkerboard pattern. Living by the maxim “Print the World”, Eley Kishimoto is renowned for its aspirational aesthetics and awe-inspiring graphic approach, upholding a principal mission that is synonymous with Vans’ dedication to authenticity and creative self-expression.
Celebrating 50 years of influential Vans heritage in 2016, the Vans Snow collection upholds the creation of products that deliver a unique blend of timeless style and performance innovation. Supported by a full collection of Mountain Edition apparel and footwear that welcomes the seasons with weatherized technologies, combined with the best rider-tunable snowboard boots available, Vans champions the importance of customization, leaving riders in the best shape for comfortable and progressive riding.
