Born and bred by the mountains of snowy Canada, Jake Kuzyk’s keen sense for simplicity in design reimagines one of Vans’ most beloved snowboard boots, the Hi-Standard.


“I like things with a simpler and clean design, and the Hi-Standard is a really attractive boot with solid construction,” says Kuzyk. “I look for consistency in snowboard boots, and I want it to feel the same every day for as long as it can.”

Marking more than 15 years in the Vans Snow boot collection, the Hi-Standard model embodies classic design, providing a reliable lace-up boot with uncompromising attributes for Jake Kuzyk’s casual yet meticulous snowboarding style. 

The Hi-Standard’s proven fit and flex are perfect for riders who prowl the urban landscape, tackle park terrain, and cruise heavy mountains. In line with Kuzyk’s ever-changing terrain needs, the Hi-Standard offers an easy lace-up construction that refuses to cut corners, meeting the promise of its name to all snowboarders who ride it. With performance enhancements that reinforce durability, Jake Kuzyk’s signature Hi-Standard boot is built atop Vans’ UltraCush Lite V2 footbeds and reverse tread waffle outsoles. 

The Hi-Standard remains one of the best-selling Vans boot of all time and with its legendary heritage and undisputed value in tow, it shows no signs of slowing down just yet.
