The Encore is a lightweight and responsive snowboard boot that delivers quick function, reliable comfort, and comprehensive all-terrain performance without equipment hassle. The Encore has been a member of the Vans snowboard boot line longer than most, and boasts an iconic look that embodies the Vans design DNA like no other. The Reverse Waffle outsoles fight fatigue, absorb impact, and optimize feel and control, and the Vans Boa® Coiler, a tongue-mounted single reel system, utilizes a spring-loaded lace spool to automatically retract lace cable slack for quick and efficient closure in specific areas of the boot. The Encore also features an internal web harness for versatile harness options, an instep flex zone for functional flex, heat-moldable Flex liners for instant flex without the break-in delay, and dual-density UltraCush V2 Footbeds for mechanical support and dampening. The Encore is made with synthetic leather and textile uppers.
