Vans OVERVIEW The new favorite of Dan Danimals Liedahl, who loved the Hybrid system but wanted it on a more playful boot, the Implant snowboard boot in Dan's new colorway is inspired by the design of the '90s-grunge-meets-the-outdoor-workbootcomplete with a snake drawing he created himself for both the label and the heel of the boot. As the more lean and clean cousin of the Infuse, the Implant snowboard boot offers a streamlined construction as host to a fully-loaded features package. The Vans Hybrid Boa® Closure System caters to both snowboarders who have been riding laces all their life and riders who have been faithful to the Boa® wheel since its inception, while the Custom Slide Guide provides an adjustable fit anywhere along the instep area for added comfort and heel hold. In addition, the Reach Around cuff strap attached to the inside shell of the boot allows snowboarders the choice of wrapping the strap around the internal liner or the exterior tongue, providing a custom fit. The Implant also features an internal wrap harness for a more personalized fit, Waffleflex outsoles for lightweight performance, heat-moldable Response liners for a nailed-in fit with precision response, and dual-density UltraCush V2 Footbeds for mechanical support and dampening. The Implant is made with synthetic leather and textile uppers. - https://www.vans.com/shop/mens-implant-danimals-savage
The Response liner offers a dialed-in fit with precision response from the get-go for any terrain or condition. Add to that the knowledge of five decades of footwear development and construction experience, and you’ll get a liner that you love.
Vans snowboard boots are grounded by Vans’ premium footbeds, developed in-house with precise attention to detail. With uncompromising effectiveness in mechanical support and dampening, the V2 footbed is the foundation for ultimate and seamless riding comfort.
The WaffleFlex cherry-picks from technologies used on the Reverse Waffle and lighter Vans outsoles. The result is unprecedented calibration between dampening and energy return. Boardfeel, traction and weight reduction are a given.
VANS HYBRID BOA CLOSURE
Featured on the men’s Implant and women’s Ferra, the Hybrid Boa configuration represents the best of both worlds, combining traditional laces with a Boa closure focused on the critical instep area of the boot. The Hybrid Boa can be pulled in tighter than traditional laces and is easy to adjust on the fly. The Custom Slide Guide simultaneously customizes fit, comfort and heel hold.
INTERNAL WRAP HARNESS
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.
THE REACH AROUND
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. Featured on the V-66, Implant, Sequal, and now on the Ferra.
